I don’t think I’ve ever written the word “wow” in a product review. Thought the word — but to actually put in a title, no. Here is the Waverly Labs Ambassador Interpreter product review.

The Waverly Labs Ambassador Interpreter is a way to have a great conversation without lugging your language guidebook around in your hand — to look up words you don’t know.

Basically, you just clip the Ambassador to your ear and start chatting. It’s so fun to use.

Looking up words is so annoying and time-wasting for work situations. Maybe that language guidebook and language phrasebook is spot on — but oh it’s tiresome to always have your head in a book on your Zoom calls — and even when traveling, carrying a book is exhausting.

Waverly Labs Ambassador Interpreter

Simply better than all the other travel phrasebook and travelers’ helps you’ve tried. You can save and export your conversation. If you want to share your notes or keep them for your records — you can do this Ambassador Interpreter with transcripts.

When leaving a conversation — you’ll be asked if you want to save the conversation. You “quit without saving,” or “Save and quit.”

Manage your transcripts

Best of all you will have a place to manage your transcripts straight from your phone home screen. From the home screen, you click the history button in the top right corner — there are all your saved transcripts and you can look at them there. If you need to have a PDF — no problem — your can export to a PDF from your same home screen.

Easily swipe and delete if you no longer want the session. So clean, so nice, so simple.

The Waverly Labs Ambassador Interpreter is a game-changer

We have tested the Ambassador out extensively. Really primo on the “regular” foreign languages. French — easy, Spanish — English — pretty perfect — even Chinese, great.

One of our team members came to the office last week. She’s from India. I hurried and grabbed her to try out the Ambassador — to see how it rated with Hindi. I had already tried a bunch (yeah, about six languages). I really wanted to stump the Ambassador. Finally, the Ambassador missed a couple of words — but our teammate said the interpretation was “very” understandable and passable for a language test.
