There’s nothing more frustrating than losing a client, or potential client, due to a language barrier. And although we’d all love to be hitting our Duolingo goals every day, there simply isn’t enough time or energy to learn every popular language in your area. Thankfully, you don’t have to.
Interpreter is Google’s real-time translator tool and it is now available on mobile. Previously only available on smart speakers and displays, Interpreter helps you break past language barriers and make more sales while building meaningful connects with your clients.
Interpreter works as part of Google Assistant. In order to launch the feature users simply say something along the lines of, “Google, help me speak Spanish” or “Hey Google, I need a Mandarin translator.” Once Interpreter has identified both languages it will prompt you to begin speaking. As you, or your client, speaks the feature will automatically translate your conversation into the language selected. A written and spoken translation will then be provided via your phone’s display.
This tool could be a game-changer for realtors who operate in areas where they often do not share the same primary language as their clients. Using a tool like Interpreter can help you level-up your communication and networking game. Once you are no longer afraid to speak with a client more than necessary it opens the door for meaningful connections between both parties. There could be a wealth of opportunities hiding behind that language barriers!
Interpreter’s functionality as both a voice and text translator makes it a beneficial resource whether you are having a face-to-face meeting with a client or communicating via text or email. Interpreter also offers users a few Smart Replies in case you need some help keeping the conversation going.
Interpreter is currently available in 44 languages including Spanish, Vietnamese, Tagalog, and German. You can access the full list of languages here. The mobile version will be the most helpful for convenient, on-the-go communication, but users can also access Interpreter through Google Home speakers, Smart Displays, Smart Clocks, and tablets. Interpreter is now available on both Android and iOS across the globe.
