Tuesday 25 May 2021 | 11:02 CET | News
A Seychellois has launched a new translation messaging application and is working to add the Seychelles Creole language as an option, Seychelles News Agency reported. Neil Gonthier said he got the idea when he was studying in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, where students with different languages were having difficulty communicating. The app called 'Know What I Mean' or KWIM for short can translate up to 60 languages and is available for download for both iPhone and Android users.
