It proved remarkably accurate as long as we both spoke clearly, didn’t run words together and kept our sentences to a reasonable length.

Sadly the app doesn’t support Hungarian at the moment, only English (UK and US), Spanish (Mexican and Spanish), French, German and Italian but with Google’s own Translate app now supporting 60 languages and many of those with text-to-speech expect that list is sure to get longer fast.

Of course, the downside with Google’s back office workings is the need for an active internet connection, so using it overseas and away from a Wi-Fi hotspot does run the risk of racking up roaming charges, but that may well be a small price to pay to achieve some clarity and make yourself capito. ®
