Linq [freemium - $8.99/mo] is an app that connects learners to real people for translations that would otherwise be limited by translation software.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Open ended
Instead of requesting a direct translation, users can ask anything language related. While the focus is on translation, social engagement and less direct questions (such as synonyms) are encouraged.
Pro Get a translation from a photo or audio clip
Whether it's a menu, a street sign, letter, or lecturer, just take a picture and someone will personally translate it.
Con Not much support for uncommon languages
Because of the social nature of this app, languages with the most speakers will yield the most responses. Languages that are less widely spoken will take longer to be answered.
