Google Translate is a free online translation service offering translation of text in more than 100 languages, from Afrikaans to Zulu. It is available as both a website and a mobile application and garners over 200 million users daily.

 

One of my favourite features of Google Translate that I believe sets it apart from other translation tools is the ability to translate entire pages of text by simply using the camera on your mobile phone. By hovering the camera over a piece of text, Google Translate highlights each word and automatically translates it into the target language. This not only saves time searching each word or typing in entire sentences yourself, it allows you to quickly find out what a piece of text says, such as if you are in a museum or attempting to read an important document.

 

Another good addition, which is a relatively new concept to the service, is the symbol to indicate approved translations from the Translate Community. This comes in the form of a shield with a tick inside, and implies that a native speaker or professional translator has confirmed that it is the correct translation. A typical problem with translation tools is a lack of accuracy, and this helps to add assurance when translating text or discovering new words.

 

Finally, the option to have the translation read out to you is another fantastic feature that I frequently use. This helps, in particular, with speaking, as it teaches how to properly pronounce different words and sentences. Although, this function is not available in all languages, it is a good tool for the most common ones.

 

An issue I’ve encountered when using Google Translate is the lack of examples provided, which put words and phrases into context. As there are often different variants for how a word is used, it is not always clear if it has translated the most appropriate.

Pros
  • More than 100 languages
  • Ability to translate entire pages using phone camera
  • Shield symbol indicates approved translations
  • Speaker button indicates how words are pronounced
Cons
  • Words not put into context, making it difficult to judge suitability

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
