Langogo Pocket Translator Review
Learn the language. That’s the first piece of advice I give to anyone who wishes to travel deeper.
In the eight years that I’ve been traveling the world full-time, there has been no better way to earn respect and appreciation from locals than by learning the native language.
Just for the record, language learning does not come easy to me.
It took me the better part of five years to gain a solid grasp of Spanish. It took me another year of intensive language classes while I was living in Brazil to feel semi-comfortable with learning Portuguese.
Learning a foreign language can be time consuming, incredibly frustrating, and yet, absolutely life changing for the better.
What if you don’t have the time to learn the language?
Enter Langogo – The world’s first AI-Powered Translator.
I recently had the opportunity to test out this revolutionary device, and I am incredibly impressed.
The Langogo device is smaller than an iPhone, and just as user-friendly focused. You simply charge the device before using and then connect to a network.
Connecting to a network (3 Options):
- Install a SIM Card for Cellular Data Connection
- Wireless Wi-Fi Connection
- CloudSIM Network Service (local mobile network without a SIM card)
How to use Langogo?
- Select the two languages you would like to translate from/to.
- Hold down side translate button and speak into the device.
- Listen to and share the translated response.
- That is it.
Accuracy – If you speak clearly, Langogo does a great job of picking up the words and even writing them on the screen. Understandably, the device doesn’t pick up slang at this point, so I made sure to articulate my words for the best results. The device even has noise cancellation where your voice can be better recognized under crowded situations.
The on-screen text feature is a great tool unto itself, and I can see this especially being great for loud restaurants and bars.
Also, while selecting the from/to languages, you can speak freely between these two languages. You don’t need to switch back and forth between the two languages. This makes for a seamless conversation between you and the foreign language speaker.
Speed – The translation response time is incredibly fast for the work it’s doing – 10 years worth of language learning classes in one little device answering in real-time!
Usability – Could my grandmother figure this out? That is my question with all tech-based product reviews. In the case of Langogo, this is one of the easiest translation tools I’ve used.
With all this said, I want more time with the device. I will continue to test it out with different languages and situations, and see how it delivers.
I am very impressed by its size, speed, and accuracy at this point, and it will make a great travel companion for my upcoming trips back to Brazil, Japan, and Russia!
