Conversation mode in Google Translate

Conversation mode in Google Translate

Transcription: (That’s pretty cool and you can try it out) But what I want to do today is, I actually want to show you a preview of a feature that we’ve been working on for a little while—it won’t be out for a few months. It’s called “conversation mode” in Google Translate. And for that I’m going to invite my colleague Kyle Overbeck on stage to help me out. Please keep in mind this is experimental, so it may or may not work perfectly. Nice to see you, Kyle. Hold on. So we’re in Germany. I know, yes. So, Kyle, I’m a tourist and you’re a salesman at a local shoe store here in Berlin. So I’m going to start “conversation mode” here, and you’ll notice that I have a button in English and you have a button in German. So our conversations would probably go something like this: —Do you have the shoes in size 41? “Sie haben die Schuhe in Größe 41.” —Welche Farbe? “Which cable?” Try it again. —Welche Farbe? “What color?” —Black or brown would be fine. “Schwarz oder braun wäre schön.” —Wir haben schwarz und braun. “We have black and brown.” —Can you give me a discount if I take both? “Können Sie mir einen Rabatt, wenn ich beide nehmen?” —Zwanzig Prozent. “Twenty percent” That’s a deal! Vielen Dank.

    Google is always impressive… Lexifone has a similar translation service but ours does not need a smart phone — it works on any phone, mobile or landline!

    exactly! Technology is great and it is supposed to help us, but learn another language is always fun.

    I’d love to see that thing say stuff in Finnish… it’s one of the hardest to translate as people tend to speak slang and broken words. lol.

    Even if it’s not an ideal translation (as native speakers attest), it’s still a totally practical tool! The point gets across! Without it there is no communication.

    Does nobody actually realize that Google Translate still sucks? Listening to this is pretty painful if German is your mother tounge. xD
