Hello former fellow ETs in Korea.

I recently developed an app for iphone that is kind of a user-powered translation app that lets travelers or language students post images of foreign language text so that other bilingual users can translate or explain it for them.

The idea is to have a huge user base around the world so that posts get speedy translations - by humans, not the garbled Google translations that we've all seen.

It's brand new and it's free so please try it and help us grow the number of users. Here's an explanation of the app as seen in iTunes app store:

and you can view our new tutorial video @

At TranslateMate, we set out to create the world's first people-powered translation app for your travel translation needs. Translate Mate allows you to post images of language you don't understand and have them translated or explained by multilingual users around the world. It's fun, easy to use and useful for travelers, expats, students or armchair linguists. Use it for..

• Signs

Wondering what kind of restaurant or business that is down the street from your apartment in Paris?

• Food Labels

Not sure if that's soy milk or fermented yak milk in that carton at the supermarket in Ulan Bator?

• Notices & Warnings

Need to know if that little ticket on your bicycle in Tokyo is a steep fine or just a warning?

• Menus

Want to make sure you're ordering the chicken and not the frog legs on that delivery menu in Hanoi?

And so many more...

• Places
• Events & Festivals
• Forms
• Maps

Or just use it for fun to help people around the world with your awesome language skills. Get started now!
