LinqApp Social Translation App

LingApp, a social translation app for mobiles, was created by a Taiwan based startup. The app pairs people in need with language help with native speakers, and is based on a freemium model. Basic inquires are free, but users buy credits to upload pictures and audio files (for example a mobile photo of a menu they need help translating). This bridges a gap between apps that use image recognition and machine translation (not very accurate) and conventional human translation. It’ll be interesting to see if they can attract a critical mass of users. If so, this could be a great solution for casual translation for travelers and language learners.
