It's been quite an eventful day for translation technology, and the day just got even better with news of Vocre 2.0's latest language software.
It was just a couple of hours ago that we reported the news of sign language being translated into text, and now there's another technology looking to get into the translation game. World, meet soon-to-be released Vocre 2.0 - coming to an App Store near you.
What's so brilliant about this piece of technology is just how futuristic it sounds - LIVE language translation. That's right, you can now speak to your foreign friendlies with real-time translation (so long as you're an iPhone, iPod or iPad user).
Announcing the launch of its private beta for Vocre 2.0, the update will allow users to take advantage of the FaceTime-based interface and execute simultaneous audio translations whilst in the middle of the voice call - adding depth to 2D conversations with 3D features such as body language and tone.
“To all those who thought it was magical how we made sci-fi fantasy a reality with Vocre 1.0, we’re here to further blow their minds with today’s sneak peek at Vocre 2.0,” explained co-founder and CEO, Andrew Lauder.
“The language translation market is ripe for innovation and disruption and our intent is to continually usher in services and products that up the ante and help make it easier to remove all language barriers from the world. We strongly believe Vocre 2.0 is the beginning of a new communication revolution by enabling anyone to carry an interpreter in their pocket.”
