When you are doing international online dating, one of the problems you will face is the language barrier. Although most international dating sites provide translation services, it can become inconvenient if it means every time you want to communicate you have to log in to the site.
One of the best ways to make an international online dating success is to get out of the dating site as soon as you are sure that you have found someone that you feel could be the one. Now the dating websites would like to keep you longer on the site because the longer you stay, the more money they make because you have to keep paying for your membership.
I think it could be very costly if you were to rely on the dating site for your communication, by using their translation services.

So What Do I Recommend to Help You overcome the Language Barrier When International Online Dating?
Well, I recommend that both of you get out of the dating site and take your relationship to another level by communicating outside of the dating site because that is how you are going to grow as a couple. If you keep communicating through the dating site, chances are you are going to have many fights brought on by the fact that as long as your profile is up on the dating site, people will always want to contact you even if you clearly state that you are no longer looking.
Some do that to just create trouble, and some do it because they think as long as you are still on the dating site or app, you are still available, which to some extent it does make sense. And that is why I am saying, you need to get out of the dating site But how can you do that?
These days there are many apps and translation devices that you can use to communicate and you will save lots of money by using these tools instead of the translation services of the dating sites.
Unfortunately, Most Language Translation Apps Are Mainly Travel Targeted So It Might Be Hard To Have A Normal Conversation.
That being said, when it comes to apps, some of them are not very effective. That’s because most translation apps are designed for traveling and not necessarily for helping in a relationship or normal conversations. This means by using such apps, things could get complicated and even challenging at times.
Of course, you can try to communicate using the translation apps but keep in mind that it can get frustrating especially if you are using the free translation apps and also your message could be lost in translation, so I would rather you use a translation device that will help you have a normal conversation, where your words are translated at over 98? accuracy or higher, and at a high speed so you can avoid those awkward poses.
I have included different kinds of devices and at different price range so you can decide what kind you would like, depending on your budget and style.
As You All Know I am A Big Fan Of The 90-Day Fiance Show
Now that I have shared with you my recommended language translation tools, I just want to share with you a story of a couple that I have been following on the 90-Day Fiance show, this is a show that follows couples as they go through the process of applying for the US K 1 visa, which is a fiance visa that allows the non-American fiance to travel to the US, and the couple is given 90 days to get married.
The couple I want to discuss is Paul and Karine, this couple has gone through a lot and even though they are no longer a part of the 90-day fiance franchise, they did make the show quite interesting.
Karine is a Brazilian beauty who met Paul online. Paul is from Louisville Kentucky and he does not speak Portuguese and Karine does not speak English. But that did not stop them from having a relationship thanks to a language translation app.
Now because of many problems they had in their relationship, the app did fall short in terms of speed and accuracy of translation which added to the frustrations.
The Couple Had Big Challenges And The Language Barrier Made Things Even Worse
As I was watching them try to communicate especially during fights, I wished they had a translation device that could allow them to have a normal conversation.
Because I think it would have helped them resolve their problems easier and quicker.
Well, the couple did manage to make their relationship work and they are now living in Louisville with their son and Karine has learned how to speak English Although Paul has not learned to speak Portuguese which I think he should.
I find it unfair that it’s mostly the foreigners who got to the US or Europe who are forced to learn the language yet the other person does not make an effort to learn the foreigner’s language.
I am speaking from experience when I say, I have been forced to learn two more languages on top of English which is not my native language, to begin with, yet my husband does not speak even a word of my language. OK, that is a story for another day.
The language barrier can create challenges in online dating because you might find someone that you are really interested in but find they don’t speak your language and you don’t speak theirs.
But with the help of technology, you can find a way to make it work.
Now it’s not going to easy because of the language barrier ads to the already difficult situation. We all know that online dating by itself is hard so when you bring the language barrier into the mix, things do tend to get quite challenging.
But with the help of the translation devices that I have mentioned, things should get easier for you.
