Tech Tip Tuesday: Get a Mobile Translator

There are so many devices that are easily portable nowadays, and so many of them can access the web.  Having a mobile translator is nothing more than having your web enabled mobile phone.  One of my very favorite translation tools is www.google.com/translate but even better in many ways is the mobile version of the site.  If you visit the Google Translate on a mobile device you will see their mobile optimized version. It lets you quickly enter a word or phrase and automatically detects the native language and returns a translation.  It also keeps a running list of the terms you have translated, making it a great way to see a list of vocabulary.


Use this in the classroom on the iPod touch, and you have a world of culture at your fingertips.

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
