Among the wide selection of Google products there is an option that tends to get overlooked-yet could be an effective tool for your business. Any business professional who does business overseas knows that, on occasion, there can be a language barrier. Google’s free online language translation service, known as Google Translate, instantly translates text and web pages for online users.
Available in a desktop application or as an iTunes app, this cool tool helps translate up to 80 languages. It can be very handy for translating information on the Internet, or even on products you possess (think assembly instructions!). On the flip-side, Google Translate can be used to enter your own sentence/slogan/marketing message and quickly have it translated into a multitude of different languages.
Google Translate can’t always account for dialects or regional nuances, but it can still be very helpful in numerous applications the majority of the time. Google Translate creators have worked to make the app and online tool easy to use and user-friendly as well. If you haven’t tried it, give Google Translate a whirl and keep it in your business tool arsenal as an easy way to converse with the world.
