Apps for nurses: Talking Translator

Over on our Facebook page, we’ve got a conversation brewing about the best nursing related phone apps. One of the nominees for best app is Talking Translator. The app, according to its website, is pretty simple: “Speak a sentence and hear the translation!”

What nurses love about it:

“I use to communicate with patients when needed and it really helps break that barrier. It recognizes many basic medical terms, to which I was surprised.” – Holly Hawkins, Google Play reviews

“I’ve been using this product ever since I got an Android, since I meet people from everywhere. I’ve had to translate English to French, English to Spanish, English to Chinese, and I use it to help make my Japanese better. The UI improvements and automatic playback are extremely convenient. This app just keeps getting better. Development should never stop.” – Teddy Kirkpatrick, Google play reviews

“Fast, easy, extremely helpful. No more hand signals. I highly recommend this super useful tool, especially if you can use it at work or you’re traveling or plan to travel overseas.” – Marcos Ortega, Google play reviews
