Google Translate is an amazing app that translates voice, keyboard input and images.

You can carry on a conversation and Google translate interprets what you say into the select language – audibly and in text. Watch this clip with my friend Rafael.

You can also hold your smartphone to a sign and it automatically converts the text to your language.

I recently used this app on a trip to Peru. I know teachers, doctors and nurses that use the app to communicate with parents, patients and clients. It can be life changing.

Believe it or not, it’s free.
