Uber has announced it is adding in-app translation to its services to help drivers and riders with any language barriers. The text-based solution is rolling out to the app worldwide, the company said in a blog post. 

It also said it would add info about your incoming ride to help you find the car, including, “the remaining minutes before it arrives, where you should meet a driver, where to walk toward, and helpful instructions navigating an airport, arena, or event venue.”

The changes are designed to help both rider and driver with those moments when you spill out of the club at 2am, hail a ride and then take ages trying to find it in the sea of people and, probably, a bunch of other Ubers driving past.

“We’ve all had pickups that don’t always go as planned,” Uber admitted, “but these updates provide even more peace of mind whether you’re headed home, commuting to work, or meeting friends for an evening out.”

The translation feature could be very useful and will be built into the existing text service riders and drivers can use to communicate. Uber said translation will work for any messages, including pre-generated ones.
