In this week’s episode of From Idea to Done we have our special guest, Suman, back on the show! We learn about his recent build, a Nepali to English translator app. We also ask the important question, “has Suman learned to swim yet?”
Hey Everyone, I’m Josh and I’m Erick AND we are back with one of our fancy awesome nerds Suman. Today’s idea is translating English to Nepali, but first thank you for coming back Suman.
S: You are welcome
E: Just to recap. Since you can’t get enough of building apps at work… In your spare time, you make apps. Last time you were on the show I believe it was when you made an app that uses the force…and mostly google to help us pick a random lunch place when we don’t know where to go.
E: That app was awesome, and the force has guided us to lunch a few times since. What did you make today?
S: My mom wanted to learn English so I made and app that has a list of basic english words and it’s nepali meaning and the way to pronounce them. And there is also a way to give exam too.
J: Can you explain your process in making this?
J: Just normal old js, or what did you use?
S: Some rails as well.
E: Can we talk about why you made this app?
S: So my mom could understand english better.
E: Josh what is the last app you made for your family?
J: I bought my kids some tablets that use apps. Does that count?
E: The last app I made for my family was chicken wings. Suman can this evolve to translating other languages?
S: Yes it can be used for basically any other language. It is a simple table.
E: Last time you were in the show, you talked about how you wanted to learn how to swim, or you were going to build a new app. Did you learn how to swim yet?
J: So what it the next app you are planning?
S: Yes, I am going to build some more cool things. I don’t know what they are yet.
E: Alight we will have you on when you next big idea is developed. Thanks for wandering over here to explain your translator or (Nepalise words for thank you.) Dhanyabad pronunciation(dhaan-yew-baa-the)
S: You are welcome
