Step 1: Visit Hello in Elephant

Step 2: Choose “Speak Elephant” from Menu. Then click the “Translate text or emoji” button

Step 3: A screen will appear stating     “… has been translated…” with a “Play Video” Button.

Step 4: Click the Play Video button to reveal your elephant translating your words or phrase into their language!

e.g. Elephant Spoken Here has chosen “Smile” to translate. Result: “‘Smile’ has been translated. This is how elephants communicate happiness.” The “play video” button appears over your elephant.

Note: If you enter words or phrases that an elephant would not understand the result is “oops, elephants don’t say that!” Your elephant, appearing on the “Oops” screen, is shown bobbing his head side to side.

Step 5: Have fun! Post on social media or share this with your friends. Don’t forget to click the Donate button to have your voice heard & make a cash donation to help save our African Elephants.

Your contributions support The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and ElephantVoices who have “created this project to raise awareness and drive donations for African elephants”.
