Google Translate's Restaurant Pop-Up Used Food to Break Language Barriers

'Small World with Google Translate' was a restaurant pop-up in New York City that focused on bringing people together through the use of food. The experience was aptly named '#EveryoneSpeaksFood' to describe that food is a universal language. The Small World diner involved three chefs with different backgrounds to come together and create cuisine that had an international fusion to it. Patrons who wanted to feast on the delectable dishes had to order the food in a really unconventional way -- using the Google Translate service on mobile devices.

The Small World restaurant pop-up helped to promote Google Translate's services by connecting consumers to the company through technology and delicious international cuisine. The fun concept emphasized unity, while still celebrating different cultures and languages.
