So you know how when you don't understand what someone's saying on Google+, you click that conveniently located translate button that appears at the bottom of their post and whammo, everything suddenly makes sense? Well, Yelp is planning on bringing some of the magic over to its mobile app. Users will be able to click a button to instantly translate reviews. It may not sound like much, but it could really come in handy when traveling in a country where the local residents speak a different language and you really just want to know where to get a plate of breakfast without breaking the bank.


The feature will only work with the fifteen languages that Yelp supports: English, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish. Oh, it will also use the Bing Translator, not Google.

Hey, let's wait for the Android app to arrive before rushing to judgment. The feature has landed on iOS today, but our platform is described as coming soon. For now we will have to wait, which isn't fun no matter how you translate it.
