Travel companies one after other announcing apps for Apple Watch which will be on our arms by the end of April. InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®) has announced availability of its highly-rated IHG® Translator App on Apple Watch™, giving travelers access to on-demand translations, virtually anywhere in the world. Thanks to the IHG® Translator App you will be able to travel like a local.
By speaking directly into the watch, or selecting from a range of pre-loaded common phrases, travelers will be able to translate from English into 13 different languages*, in real-time, meaning the app will cover the nine initial launch countries for Apple Watch™. Translations will appear instantly on the screen of the device in the chosen language, giving users the chance to read the word or phrase, with the help of phonetic spelling. Formal, casual and slang settings will also be available.
Michael Menis, Senior Vice President for Digital and Voice Channels at IHG, commented: “At IHG we know that for today’s consumer, technology is fundamental to driving superior experiences across the entire Guest Journey. We are committed to helping travelers make the most of their experience, wherever they are in the world, be it through a personal computer, mobile device or wearable technology. We’re excited to have a version of our IHG Translator App ready for Apple Watch.”
To coincide with the launch of Apple Watch™, IHG is making the IHG Translator App available to all users of the new device free of charge. The IHG Translator App for mobile remains available for download in both the App Store for iPhone and Google Play for Android.
