The Rise of the Emerging Market Traveler Sponsored This content is created collaboratively with one of our sponsors.
Despite stalled growth in China, Brazil and Russia, a wave of newly middle-class travelers from the BRICs and beyond will start visiting international destinations in the coming decades — dwarfing the numbers we’ve seen thus far.
Translations accessible via text rather than app could be easier for some travelers and set the service apart from the growing number of mobile translation services.
An interesting new Spanish and Chinese translation service called Muuzii has made its way to AT&T’s 2G network. Unlike other app-based translators, Muuzii performs its translations using the most basic data channel on the phone: SMS.
Subscribers simply type an English phrase in a text message and send it to a Muuzii short code, and get back a Spanish or Chinese translation (depending on which language you register for).
