It’s been a long time coming and a moment many of us have been waiting for, but the wait is over because the Tweetalator Twitter translation app (say that 5x fast) has finally arrived. It’s developed by Appositive LLC and is available for both the iPad and Android tablets.
Kick start your weekend by checking out this one of a kind Twitter app. It’s the first tablet PC app of it’s kind and at the moment it supports the following 35 languages:
Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Haitian Creole, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese.
Pros & Cons
Realistically translation programs are typically only somewhat accurate and that’s at best. Hey I’m just speaking honestly here. Despite that, an app like this still has many useful advantages and will open the door to a whole new world for Twitter users and social media in general.
Not to knock the developers, but no translation software is perfect, not for any platform. We have come a long way with translation technology over the years but we still have a long way to go yet. I can’t wait to see some of the screenshots of misspelled translations and misinterpretations on all of the joke websites out there. Let’s be honest, it won’t take long for that to happen!
Anyhow, enough of me being cynical. Moving along now. Straight from your iPad or Android tablet you can now type, read tweets and view RSS feeds for tweets in practically any language. How cool is that?
How Do I Translate Tweets From My Tablet PC?
In order to use this translation app all you need to do is install it then allow Tweetalator to access your Twitter account, select your language and off you go. It really is that simple. You can freely switch to any language you desire easily and on the fly.
