How to communicate with a person who does not understand your language at all? Online translators can help you understand each other, but communication will be too slow and boring. Another thing is an automatic translation in chats. To find out where to find such a translation, read this article.
If you can write and read in Spanish and a little in English, for instance, how can you communicate with a person who does not understand a word in these two languages, but speaks, for example, Chinese? Of course, no one forbids you to use online translators, but how long and tedious it will be: first, you should enter each replica, translate it, and only then copy it to a messenger! Fortunately, there is a way out how to break the language barrier and chat with a foreigner in random video chats without having a common language. How to do this, read below.
The problem of the language barrier will never lose its relevance, and by the end of this year, Microsoft is going to release a Skype version with a real-time translation of voice and video calls.
But we’ll talk about another tool that can be quite conveniently used right now – a multilingual chat in Google Sheets.
Since two people can simultaneously work in Google Sheets, you can use this tool as a simple messenger.
And if you synchronize a table with Google Translator, which is quite simple, the text will be automatically translated in real time.
A multi-language chat with an automatic translation
So, we have two interlocutors who have met each other in an international random chat for dating. They do not speak each other’s languages, but they are willing to chat. Then should open Google Sheets at the same time and see two marked columns – one for each interlocutor.
The first participant of the chat can write text in his/her own language in the first column, and the translated version of the text will be displayed in the second column.
- To get started, open Google Sheets and select File → Create Copy so that the same table appears on your Google Drive.
- Create a copy. Share this table with your interlocutor.
- Provide edit access. Now, it remains only to write your name and the name of your interlocutor in cells, as well as select the languages you speak.
- Chatting. That’s all, now you can quickly and without problems correspond with a foreign acquaintance. Try it, it’s really easy.
As you see, nowadays, it is possible to find the way out even if you found a pleasant interlocutor in a cam chat but do not speak one language. Modern technologies allow breaking borders.
