What is it about?

Are you abroad or dealing with foreign visitors? If you don’t know the language, how do you communicate? Out comes your smartphone! You speak (voice recognition is great), or type, and your favorite App gives you the translation, both spoken and written. If you’re lucky, the words are magnified for easy reading. Sorted… but are you sure?

App Store Description

Are you abroad or dealing with foreign visitors? If you don’t know the language, how do you communicate? Out comes your smartphone! You speak (voice recognition is great), or type, and your favorite App gives you the translation, both spoken and written. If you’re lucky, the words are magnified for easy reading. Sorted… but are you sure?

Is the translation correct? Will the taxi driver take you to Mars? Will the waiter bring you furry meatballs in fish soup? Does your guest really want curried orange juice?

Machine translation is getting better, but everyone knows that it’s not reliable. You need BackTranslate!

BackTran uses your choice of translation engine (three for now) to translate your text into the target language and then (and here’s the innovation) translate it back again!

Now you can make sure the translation is accurate. Just compare the original with the back translation. If there’s a meaning disconnect, your original text was probably too complex / colloquial / ambiguous. Simplify it on the fly and try again. Smiles all round, the communication is clear.

BackTran is a reliable interpersonal communications tool, helping you cope with up to 90 languages. Sure, you only really need one or two, but you never know!

BackTran can also assist with writing letters to friends and business partners in a foreign language. Build them one sentence or paragraph at a time. Take pity, BackTran can’t write books (yet). Your contacts are sure to be impressed with the quantum leap in your language skills but, hey, they use BackTran too!
