Google’s Pixel Buds, a real-time translation device is up and running and it is able to translate in real time 40 languages at the paltry price of just $159. Pixel Buds is a real-time translator app that operates wirelessly. It works with the Pixel handset and when it needs charging this takes place in its case. It can produce 4 charges of around 5 hours each. This is a particularly useful language translator device for anyone who is spending a few hours as a tourist in a place where they can’t understand the language.
When translating, Pixel Buds depend on the well known Google Translate app to achieve the translation. When you want the translating to begin you hold down your finger on the right-hand ear bud and say out loud the language you want to get a translation for. You then speak a sentence and the app will speak out the translation to you and it will also be displayed on the phone.
The individual you are trying to communicate with does not require their own personal Pixel Buds to take a part in the conversation. All they need to do is hold down the right button and say something in your phone. The phone will deliver a translation of those words and sentences. This makes a useful voice translator device for anyone involved in a conversation they don’t understand.
If you are looking for real-time language translation this app could be just what you are looking for. There is no noticeable lag between the spoken words and the translation so it doesn’t interrupt your conversation too much.
So far the Pixel Buds is useful as a language translator for those who want to be able to get a basic understanding of what someone is saying in another language. However, anyone who has used Google Translate will know there are some serious errors in many translations that could lead to misunderstandings. This means it shouldn’t be used in serious situations such as translating medical terminology for a patient in a hospital. These kinds of translations should be left to qualified medical translators or interpreters who possess a higher degree of knowledge of medical conditions and medical terminology and are unlikely to lead to any misunderstandings.
You can use these real time language translation apps for eating, shopping, checking into hotels and asking directions as Google Pixel Buds will give you a chance to communicate with people as they will understand you and you will understand them.
