eReader could replace vacation phrasebooks

Emanuel Longo | March 29, 2011

Amazon kindlePrint books are slowly being replaced by eReaders, evidenced by failing bookstores and winning electronic reader sales. What does that mean for the phrasebooks we often purchase when we go on vacation in a foreign country?

Well, thanks to a web app called “Kindlefish”, developed by SeattleFlyerGuy, Kindle users are now capable of using Google Translation on their travels.

Amazon’s Kindle saw 48 percent of eReader sales in 2010, making it the prime candidate for this app.

If you want to try it out, simply go to http://kindlefish.t15.org on your Kindle and start translating. As always, it should be said that machine translation is not always accurate, but it should help you order your next meal or find a place to stay when overseas.
