Communicating across languages and borders
Use Case | Distant Relatives
Palaver can help to build relationships with distant relatives and family members in other countries who may speak a different language.
With migration levels showing no signs of slowing down, individuals and their families are seeking opportunities in different countries to their own to achieve a better life. Since the 1950s, migration from the subcontinent like Pakistan, India and Bangladesh to Western Europe has resulted in multicultural communities in new chosen countries.
As these communities have expanded and flourished, second and third generations are either losing touch with relatives in their homeland or have never passed on their original language to their children. This has resulted in a language disconnect between families in new countries and their relatives, particularly older relatives in the original country.
The Palaver app offers instant voice translation, which enables people to have frequent phone conversations, where younger family members often talk in real-time and in a different language with relatives overseas.
It also enables individuals to build new relationships with people and introduce them to their distant relatives who speak a different primary language. By using Palaver’s voice translation both sides of a telephone call can understand everything in the conversation.
