Translation, Language & Speaking Like a Local
‘What a Trip!’ by Triplandia are a series of language learning stories that help you learn to speak like a local and were one of the stands that caught my eye at this year’s web summit. Referring to themselves online as “The most fun language learning app in the universe. Guaranteed.” – it’s a pretty big claim, but we do all hope to sound like a local rather than like a tourist when we travel. Translating words and phrases that can’t directly be translated can be hard, even for a professional translator, so of course it’s hard for everyone else. This is a great way to try get comfortable with the local language and get more comfortable in your local conversations. Watch their app trailer below.
