Translation Transforms
In this April 4, 2013 photograph, Phillip Smith uses Google Translate to "speak" with his new daughter, 14-year-old Guan Ya, in their Rienzi, Miss., home. Smith, his wife Niki Smith and their three other children are using the program to communicate almost exclusively with Guan Ya, who is deaf. The family uses iPhones, iPods and a laptop, all loaded with the program to write in either English that translates to Chinese or vice-a-versa. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
