After experience with Buddies Without Borders, a club at the University of New Hampshire, which connected domestic, English-speaking students with an international buddy to be friends with we inspired to bring this idea of learning about different cultures around the world to the hackathon, which is why we made CultureSwap.

CultureSwap is a web app that eliminates the language barrier by providing real-time translation through a chat platform. It was built with a Node.js backend, and we utilized Bootstrap and JQuery for the frontend. We let the users specify their native language, and the country they would like to be matched up with, and our app provides the automatic translation needed to have seamless conversations.
