  1. 1
    Let's start out by pressing the power or lock screen button on the right side of the phone one time.
    A quick little press on that is going to open up our phone.

    This will take you to your Home screen where you should have your Google Translate application already installed as per our previous discussions.
    Let's give a quick tap in Google Translate to open it.

    From here, you can see that we currently have our Google Translate window open.
    Now, what I'm going to show you how to do is use the handwriting function. That is the little squiggly line on the right-hand side of your screen.

    Let's start off with English to Russian at the top, as that may be easier for most of you.
    Then tap on the handwriting icon.

    When the screen opens, you can write directly on the screen using your finger.
    We're just going to put Hi.

    Now, let's translate that.
    What you write in should appear at the bottom of the screen, so if it looks correct press on it to confirm that this is what you want to translate. Then press the blue arrow at the bottom right corner of the screen.

    If you wanted to translate Russian to English, just tap the icon between the two languages at the top to switch them.
    Let's use a short Russian word.

    Now, we will write in a word in Russian.

    This is how the application works with more standard script characters like we have in the majority of languages in the world.
    When you're writing Chinese characters, and Japanese, or when you're writing in Korean, or any language that is not a standard character, sound language, where there are thousands of possible combinations in a given alphabet, you need to write the letters the way that they are taught to be written. In Chinese, for example, there is only one way to write certain things. If you want to write the word person in Chinese, then you need to write it exactly the way that it is written.

    Then when you translate it, you will see it translated correctly.

    If you write the characters the wrong way, you'll see that we got a little caret mark because that's how it works.
    The program expects that the letters would be written in particular because that is how they are written. The only people who write Chinese letters differently usually are artists. Even then, that's because a particular character written a particular way has a particular set of meanings or a sense behind it. In this case some characters can be apart or together as we discussed earlier with the woman and son characters. We'll try and write the Chinese characters for woman, for example, and then we'll write the Chinese character for son.

    When we tap that at the bottom, it will give us the characters at the top.

    When we click on the blue arrow at the bottom to translate, we will see that it is good.
    Hao, okay or good, but as a general rule of thumb, that tends to mean good.

    Whereas, as we showed you earlier, these two characters apart mean woman and son.
    Collectively, in the language, the ideology behind that is that a woman and a son is a good thing together. So it's good. Everything's okay as a woman and a son. Let's click the x at the top right corner to close this screen.
