Whether for a work meeting or to read a menu in a new place, translation apps can help you reach the world! With the internet, the whole world is at your fingertips, but what do you do when you need to access sites or information in an unfamiliar language? There are apps for that! This lecture will introduce digital translation tools and apps, such as Google Translate. You’ll learn about tools that can automatically translate the websites you visit, apps that can translate live conversations, and more. We’ll also discuss the pros and cons of these tools and the situations in which they may be the most helpful.

About the Digital Skills Ready@50+™ program

Learning new skills, especially digital ones, can be exciting and intimidating. Two in five adults aged 50+ feel technology is not inclusive. That's why we're excited to team up with AARP Foundation, Older Adults Technology Services (OATS), and its flagship program, Senior Planet, to provide the Digital Skills Ready@50+™ program in our community. Senior Planet instructors will teach the sessions live via Zoom. We will have an on-site library facilitator during the sessions.
