British Woman And Italian Man Fall In Love Using Google Translate
Do you believe in love at first sight?
If so, what happens when you make your inevitable move, only to find you don't share a single word of the same language?
Well, you speak the language of love, of course. But there's only so long you can have sex and share a thumbs-up before things start to go stale... though come to think of it, that doesn't actually sound half bad.
Fortunately, we no longer have to judge a soul by the ambiguous twinkle in their eye - we can get Google Translate to explain the gibberish coming out of their mouths.
Chloe Smith, from Wolves, UK, has the handy pocket translator to thank for helping her forge a relationship with an Italian man she met in a nightclub in Ibiza.
Immediately attracted to the stallion, the 23-year-old approached Daniele Marisco, but quickly realised they wouldn't have a clue what each other were saying, even without the blaring tuuunage.
Unperturbed, the pair used the translator to communicate, as well as watching videos with subtitles.
A week later, they decided to go on holiday to Barcelona and now, two years on, they live together in Streatham in South London.
Chloe said: "There was something exciting about Daniele - the fact we couldn't understand each other wasn't a problem. We just clicked.
"I made the first move and asked him for his number because I just found him so attractive.
"Some people thought I was crazy when I went to Barcelona with him after only knowing him for one week but I just knew it would be the best decision I could ever make.
"Sometimes you must do these things for love."
Chloe is now working as a make-up artist in the capital, while Daniele is a bartender in an Italian restaurant.
These days, Google Translate takes a back seat, as the couple have both learned each other's language purely by talking to each other.
Daniele said: "Chloe talked and laughed a lot, but I didn't understand. The only thing I understood was that she was special.
"We wanted to be together from the moment we met and that is why we worked. She helped me learn English and I have helped her learn how to cook Italian food.
"We have proved any doubters that we're meant to be.
"From the very start I had a good feeling about Chloe. She is my soulmate."
Just goes to show language is no barrier. Particularly when you're really good-looking.
Nathan Bain, engineer on Google Translate, was keen to highlight how useful the service can be in a person's love life.
He said: "The language of love requires no translation - but for everything else there is Google. FYI, we translate wedding invitations too!"
