[prMac.com] Helsinki, Finland - Veggoagogo aims to provide the modern vegetarian traveller with an app that lends confidence to a situation that has filled vegetarians with dread for decades; ordering vegetarian food on the road. As well as defining what a vegetarian is, Veggoagogo addresses many of the needs that the travelling vegetarian faces on a daily basis, from locating a restaurant that serves vegetarian fare, to choosing suitable items from the menu, down to thanking the chef, waiter, concierge, market-stall holder or friendly local.
Veggoagogo is intuitive and easy to use. The user simply chooses a question from those offered, then selects from one of 50 languages available before tapping the translate button and being presented with their translation. The all important translation screen text has been optimised to be displayed at a distance. It can be flicked between night and day modes, making the text easy to read in all lighting conditions.
Veggoagogo enlisted the drawing talents of illustrator, Cat MacInnnes to create a range of animal icons, that add to the usability of the app, whilst maintaining its simplicity.
Users can tap the animal icons atop the translation screen and be presented with full screen versions which can be swiped and used as a visual backup to the translated message. Users are encouraged to spice up their Veggoagogo experience to match the flavour of their current destination with one of the many preset colour themes on offer.
Paul Dodson, founder of 2Camels Publishing had this to say, "Often when travelling it's hard to get across exactly what vegetarianism is. In many countries it's a loosely defined concept where vegetarian dishes may still include fish or seafood. With Veggoagogo we aimed to do two things: one, define what a vegetarian will and won't eat and two, offer a range of questions that travelling vegetarians face on a daily basis. In version 1.0 of Veggoagogo, we do this in 50 languages. Veggoagogo has been designed with simplicity and usability in mind. The interface is uncluttered and hopefully, aesthetically pleasing. All of our translations have been professionally completed by native language speakers".
Veggoagogo is the first of a number of travel translation apps designed to use the same application architecture. Local language versions of Veggoagogo are available in: English, Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), French, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.All text translations were completed by Translated.
