Live translation for when accuracy really matters.

Imagine your worst travel nightmare. You’re in a car crash; you’re rushed to hospital; your travel companion has been arrested by the police. Then imagine you can’t speak the local language. You can’t understand what’s being said; you can’t get people to understand you. What’s wrong? What’s everyone saying?

Now imagine you have immediate access to a professional, live, human interpreter in your pocket. You’re still in a stressful situation, but there's an interpreter by your side to explain what's going on.

Don’t wait for the situation to arise: download whym today and always travel with peace of mind.

whym is FREE to download.

- Access a live interpreter from the app 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere in the world. Once you've signed up and bought some minutes, simply open whym, tap on the language required, confirm your call, and you will be connected in less than a minute.

- Buy interpreter minutes via the 'Top up' tab. Add 8, 30 or 60 minutes to your account through an in-app purchase. We'll tell you how many minutes you have left on your account at the beginning of every call.

- whym currently supports English to the following languages: Arabic, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

A Must Have for All Travelers out of their Linguistic Comfort Zone

Unless you're some socioeconomic elite they can afford a traveling translator, you can get into some complex situations while in a foreign country and have no way of communicating with the locals. This app can be a real lifesaver. You can even use it just for simple things like ordering food or conversing with a host. I heavily recommend this app for Day-to-day conversations and a fail-safe for bad situations.
