Why Translation Apps Are Not Always A Safe Bet

Why Translation Apps Are Not Always A Safe Bet

Unafraid of scary words that sound like gibberish, the modern traveller bravely ventures out past his immediate surroundings. His support system–the innumerable translator apps available online–converts the sounds he hears, to something he can actually understand.

This modern traveller is not alone. Many of us choose to use such apps, even while studying a language–because they are easy to use, convenient, inexpensive–many also promise us accurate translations.

Even dictionaries have begun jumping onto this bandwagon, offering translations for the more common languages heard around the globe.

What we (and the modern traveller) often overlook, is the nuances hidden in each word of every single language.

The word ‘eat’ in English has (according to one such app), 7 different translations in French and Spanish, and 6 different translations in Italian. These words are similar to the English meaning of ‘eat’ but are used in different contexts.

It could be argued that translating a sentence as a whole removes the chance of multiple possibilities and provides an answer in the right context. While correct, this is not the case for all phrases or words which have no literal translation into English. The same holds true for sentences or phrases being translated into English; sometimes there is no logical meaning to it.

For example: It’s raining cats and dogs, does not mean what we think it does if translated into French, for example.

Raining Cats and Dogs

Now try translating this German idiom ‘Alles hat ein Ende, nur die Wurst hat zwei’. While it translates to ‘Everything has an end, only the sausage has two’ (in English), its meaning is closer to the English saying ‘All good things must come to an end’.

While each word is translated, the context and meaning of a sentence is not conveyed in the same manner. The essence is lost, quite literally, in translation.

Instead of relying heavily and exclusively on a translator app, the modern traveller would benefit if he studied the language with a native speaker.

They are the only people uniquely qualified to explain the subtle differences in the usage of common words, the colloquialisms and the context in which they should be used.

Take the words, ‘I’m sorry’, for example. Simple words; in Spanish, this phrase takes on slightly different meanings in different situations.

People usually say « Lo siento » for an apology (if something was your fault), and (if you are trying to get someone’s attention) say « Disculpe » or « Perdón ».

Native speakers, additionally, can help the modern traveller avoid mangling words in whichever foreign language he wishes to speak by coaching him in the exact accent and pronunciation.

For a seamless travel experience, the modern traveller should arm himself with both a prior knowledge of the language as well as a reliable and accurate translation app. After all, it is never a bad idea to have a backup plan.

Learning Has Never Been This Easy!

Learning Has Never Been This Easy!

Picture5

Are you looking to expand your business overseas? Or hoping to make your child bilingual? Do you want to impress your friends and colleagues? Or just take up a new hobby?

If you do, then Albert-learning is for you.

Begun in 2011, spun out of a common idea between two IT professionals, our company has evolved into a global online language training institute, offering students across the world the freedom to learn many foreign languages like French, Spanish, English, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian and German, at their convenience.

To boost efficacy, we’ve created content that helps you practice the four principal skills- reading, writing, listening and speaking.

If you are afraid about that hard-to-master accent, don’t be!

Work on an authentic accent and understandable pronunciations with our native trainers. You would essentially learn French from a French native, Spanish from a Spanish native and so on.

We provide 30 minute sessions either individually or in groups, the choice of which lies with you; and the ability to cherry-pick your trainers from the ones available.

While the first session gauges your level, the following sessions will see you learn common greetings (for beginners) to essay writing on scientific topics (for intermediate and expert level students). Grammar is taught across levels- to beginners, intermediates and experts.

With attractive and affordable packages for students, the lack of an age limit, the convenience of taking sessions from your homes, offices or colleges, and a plethora of topics ranging from art, to science, to food, we have something for everyone.

Still need to be convinced?

Visit our website (www.albert-learning.com) and let our trainers convince you face-to- face.
