Translation apps

It is important to know that not everything is directly translatable. Here are some things to keep in mind when translating from your native language to English:

  • The sentence structure may be different – click here for examples of English sentence structures.
  • Tenses – in English there is past, present and future tense. For example, the word go. Past tense of go is went/have gone. Present tense of go is go/going/goes. Future tense of go is will go/will be going. 
  • Noun markers – words like the, a, an, the, this, that, these, those.
