Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, we're going to quickly press the "lock screen" or "home button" and that's going to open our phone up to the home screen.

    When that's done, you're going to be taken to your home screen, where you should already have the Google Translate application installed.

    If you want to have it on another screen, that's entirely up to you, however, I strongly recommend that when learning a new application, or using it for the early part or especially when following online tutorials, to keep it on your home screen.

    What we're going to do is the application, which is the Google Translate button.

    As you can see here, I've got all kinds of crazy texts that have been entered in from my earlier attempts.
    Some of them failed while trying to learn and set up some of the languages, which are rather difficult to enter, such as trying to write Chinese with my finger, which was, I must confess, very frustrating.

    What we want to do now is just take your finger and just swipe.
    It can be done in either direction. That will make it just go away. It's kind of like a game where you dodge the words you don't understand. Which in most people's cases is going to be almost all of them.

    Which may seem a bit silly, but you see I have the right word for "good" in Russian.
    I can pronounce it well enough for most taxi drivers to understand me and the occasional girl, which is all I've really ever used it for.

    If I go back to home and I turn it back on, when I go back the favorites, you can see that it is back on the favorites.

    It's not going to go away, and I can't delete it or do anything else with it in the favorites menu, other than either tap it to be a favorite or actually tap it itself to open it and see what it is.

    When I'm done with it.
    I just press the "x" to get me out of there, you can see that it remains unchecked.

    This is to help you from accidently deleting something that you may have wanted to keep.
    So you tap on favorites, and you can see that they are still in there. Even though they have been deleted from the starred list, they still remain in the favorites.

    If you are conducting a business in a foreign country, or you're doing anything in a foreign country that involves 2 different types of people, you will want to separate the conversation.
    For example: you're probably not going to talk to your business partner the same way you talk to your girlfriend, you are trying to explain a business concept to your partner, you want to do it here on the home screen.

    The favorites screen is where you'll probably have some kind of comment, telling your girlfriend what beautiful eyes she has, or how you're looking forward to going shopping with her.
    Your business partners might not think that's really cool.
