Foursquare using Microsoft Translator for reviews and tips translations

Foursquare is the online local search and discovery service mobile app which provides the best places to go with friends when going out or travelling around the world. If you are one of those users looking for recommendations on Foursquare while on the go, but you couldn’t read them because of language barriers, here’s some good news for you.

The app is looking to expand its services, so it just announced the integration of Microsoft Translator API directly into their service, meaning that users will be able to read tips and reviews in their native languages. Foursquare is currently used by 55 million people worldwide who have left more than 75 million recommendations about the best food, nightlife, shops, places to visit in any city in the world.

If you are searching, for example, for the best food in French, simply search through your Foursquare app (installed on your device) and easily translate the tips/reviews generated into your own language. With this new integrated service, Foursquare is aiming at offering its users an authentic local advice and helping people to break down the language barriers.
