Menu For Tourists

Rio de Janeiro launched a new app that translates menus for multiple languages and help tourists to choose restaurants in the city.

The Menu For Tourists application found the perfect formula for tourists to find the ideal restaurant: break the language barrier. To solve the problem with foreign tourists and professionals who work in bars and restaurants, Menu For Tourist developed an app that provides detailed menus of establishments in Portuguese, English and Spanish – and the houses can also choose to purchase the service in several other languages like German, French, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian and Italian.

The process is simple:

to access the application (available for free download in the App Store and Google Play), the geolocation system points out the restaurants that are nearby. Thus, just choose the language and look at all the menus. In the restaurant, waiters will have a tablet with the menu just as available in the app – which facilitates the choice and the performance of the application of the dish you want to eat.

The search for bars and restaurants can also be made only by language.

The key is that the menus are explanatory, taking into account the particularities of each language, avoiding literal translations which further confuse tourists.

Important:

If a German-speaking user to access the application and select the German language, will be indicated to him only restaurants that have the menu translated into this language, which has proven to be a great marketing tool these establishments to foreign tourists – since, if he chooses the English language, for example, all the restaurants are listed. Importantly, users see the full menus of the establishments and they can be accessed from anywhere, which makes the application very attractive also for domestic tourists, since every menu must be in English.

Even before the official launch on December 15th, over 60 Rio restaurants in town are already registered
