The name speaks for itself. Google translate App is all about translating from one language to another. Imagine a person from Nicaragua has come on an official visit to Interior Kerala as part of some Hydro Electric Power Project. The stay is almost for three months. If it was a short tourist visit, then fine (guides help out) but official visit without local language knowledge may be tough.
But that’s not a worry. This is where the Google translation app comes in very handy.
The person from Nicaragua just needs to go to Google translate web page, type the word or sentence in Spanish and get the translated meaning in Malayalam (local language of Kerala) If he presses on the speaker icon, the sentence will be read out. Listen two to three times and you can pronounce it fairly ok. At least enough to communicate.
