Breaking down barriers by providing accessible communication and translation.
What's being solved?
Being a group of avid travellers coming into this project, solving the idea of an easy to use translation and communication product for all was something very close to our hearts; we wanted to give users an option of a translation tool that provided a multi-facet translation service (photography, voice, traditional) as well as cloud-based curation of phrases that could be accessed at a moments notice.
Going into this, we had to look at the wide variety of translation options already available in order to get an understanding of the direction we wanted to take. We wanted to create a better user experience by creating a downloadable library of common phrases in the requested language to provide an easy first point of access, with a variety of common translation options as a secondary point, which would lead to an effective product with multiple points of user access depending on the users needs.
