More language-learning tools means less lost-in-translation moments

Implications - With the rise of the Internet and other innovations in global connectivity, we are steadily becoming a more ubiquitous world. Aiding in this ubiquity are language-learning and translation tools that help people overcome language barriers both on- and offline. Learning a new dialect is easier than ever, and for those who don't want to learn, there are real-time translators that can be used on-the-go. What's more, an increasing number of brands are willing to include multi-language platforms in their wares, a strategy that allows for greater market capture and heightened brand loyalty.
