Translator/Dictionary - Chinese & Japanese by Waygo: Translate Chinese (Mandarin) Language or Japane

Instant translation of Chinese and Japanese characters into English googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1401793356990-0')});

Seriously folks, the future is now. With Waygo, you point your device at characters that totally incomprehensible to you and instantaneously derive meaning, delicious meaning. That's right: Waygo translates Chinese and Japanese characters into English, instantly.

You may collect your jaw from the floor.

If you're reading this review, you're clearly learned in Roman characters, so you're able to tough it out around, say, Europe, even without being a dedicated polyglot. The world of Asian glyphs, though, has remained largely impenetrable to those with a Roman-character background without dedicated learning, probably years of it.

All you have to do is point the camera of your device at the text you want to translate. Center it in the box to get an immediate readout in English below. BAM. It really is that fast and simple. It doesn't even require a data connection.

You'll see a pinyin pronunciation of the words if you're translating from Chinese. If desired, you can also share your translations through whatever messager/social media you like.

This free version gives you the full capacity of the app, but limits daily translations to 10 maximum. An upgrade lets you translate to your hāto's content.

The negatives are obvious, and have to do with this being basically the first widely-available app of its kind: the text needs to be ultra clear in order for a proper reading, and the dictionary sometimes spits back nonsense translations at you.

That said, I'm still amazed and delighted with Waygo, and will unquestionably take it with me on my next trip to Beijing.
