We just launched the Babylon Touch for Android, and the positive reviews are pouring in. Here is one of our favorites:
My humiliation. Let me tell it to you:
A few years ago, I was doing one of those semester abroad things in Paris — I spoke “un peu français” — Because let’s be real: I came for the food, the fashion, and (of course) L’amour… I figured I’d pick up the language while strolling Champs Elysees or something but it sooo wasn’t a priority.
Oh, if only.
I remember sitting in a restaurant one night and staring blindly at the menu. I wanted to impress my date with my grasp of the language. (Nothing like candles, music and vin blanc to lower ones inhibitions. Ahem.) So, instead of following my usual M.O. and asking the waiter for help with the menu before ordering, I smiled confidently, and ordered “Le Cuisse de Grenouilles.”
And this is why I can never watch Disney’s Princess and the Frog. Like, ever. Because it makes me feel like a cannibal.
C’est. La. Vie.
So, this is why I’m digging the Babylon Touch for Android.
Here’s how it works: The Babylon Touch for Android enables you to get immediate translations for real world hard copy texts. Just launch the app, point your phone’s camera, and get an instant translation of any hard copy text, like a book, an article in a newspaper, an exhibit explanation board at a museum, or a menu.
Voila. I’ll never order Frog Legs again.
Merci Beaucoup, Babylon!
