Language not a barrier any more, with the new feature of Google Maps.

In Google Maps, Search, Social, Technology


Have you ever run over a situation, wherein you experienced a difficulty making sense of what each of the organizations around you are, regardless of the fact that you could read the names of those organizations? Really this sort of issues is confronted when we stab at getting around, while going in a nation with an exceptionally new dialect. Another Google Maps feature has been developed in Japan to help the users in such sort of unbalanced conditions.

Japanese organizations can now list themselves as one of more than 1000 classifications in 19 distinct dialects including Arabic, Basque, Bulgarian, Catalan, Dutch, English, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Thai. These classes are seen on the right of the map view with no compelling reason to open the listings page.

Now anyone can easily understand that Afuri is an eatery, junkudo is a book shop, Matsumoto is a drugstore and lot more according to the categories. This new component is certainly taking off crosswise over Japan and will show up whenever you arrive in the nation.

Google Maps will now breakdown language barriers by clarifying which foreign businesses are adjacent when you’re abroad.
Although the feature is currently only available in Japan, it is expected to be rolled out worldwide very soon.
