Google Translate is an App which I have previously posted here and here - it was great to use whilst I live and work in Thailand. But I was then in trouble because I could not help a Chinese Gentleman who wanted us to do something but we were all at a complete loss...

So I tried the Audio translate. I set up the correct language and then I asked the guest to speak into the telephone (needing the Internet)...

And it worked - fabulous - a happy guest, happy staff and a fixed air-conditioner. Maybe all hotels should have this in the Front Lobby of their hotels?
