Purdue University's new app could keep unsuspecting travelers from ordering dishes such as gusano, without knowing what they are
Purdue University has developed an app that translates the names of menu items for travelers, and provides information on the dishes
Once when I was visiting Montreal, I went into a restaurant and discovered that the menu was entirely in French. Not wanting to admit that I couldn’t read the language, I was instead forced to order the only two things I recognized the names of: Caesar salad and calamari. Had smartphones been around at the time, I definitely could have used Purdue University’s new food translator app. It not only translates the names of foreign-language dishes, but it also tells you what they are and what’s in them.
