New Travel Symbols App, by The Nomad Way

Simplify Travel by Speaking a Universal Language with our new App!

We've been busy whilst exploring South America and are now excited to let everyone know that we have launched an app for iPhone and Android!

After travelling, you realise pretty quickly that one of the key frustrations is the language barrier..."how do I say that?" has got to be one of the most common sayings amongst travellers. Whilst travelling through multiple countries, you can't know every language. We used to take images of everyday items on our phone to help with words we didn't know or didn't have time to learn to assist with communication.

Well we have decided to expand on this idea and turn it into a functional mobile app for all travellers called 'Travel Symbols'. This unique app contains hundreds of searchable travel-specific symbols, divided into various categories. Users simply open a symbol and show their phone to the local person from whom they are seeking assistance. The symbols are recognised worldwide, so can be used in any country, any language, anywhere and with anyone.

Travel Symbols will enable travellers to make the most of their overseas adventures by cutting down language barriers. The app enables communication easily, anywhere, by anyone. There are no pronunciation issues - the person you are communicating with doesn't even need to be literate. Simple, fast and unlike many translation apps, no internet connection is needed.

The app is available to download in Apple's App store and Google's Play store. Check out the video below, we hope you like it. Spread the word and live life, The Nomad Way.
