Google Translate and Transliterate
Google Translate will instantly translate text from one language to another. It currently supports 67 languages. Need help with pronouncing a word, many any of the languages have spoken word translation. Go check it out... Google Translate.
Here is Google's description of Transliterate, "Google Translator Toolkit offers an automatic transliteration option for converting Roman characters to Arabic or the Indic characters used in Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Punjabi (Gurmukhi), Tamil, and Telugu. This lets you type these languages phonetically in English script and still have them appear in their correct alphabet. Note that this is not the same as translation -- the sound of the words is converted from one alphabet to the other, not the meaning." Go check it out here... Google Transliterate.
There is an App for That:
Are you struggling to communicate with a student and dont have time to go to your computer and type something out? Take out your Android or iOS device and download the Google Translate App. What I like about the app is that you dont even have to type. Just speak into your phone and Google will translate it in to text and audio.
