Put that Sino-English dictionary down, you won't need to brush up on your vocabulary before vacationing to the Far East anymore thanks to NTT Docomo's newest translation technology.
Today at the Wireless Japan 2011 Expo, mobile company NTT Docomo revealed the type of technology that sends shivers down your spines. Using voice recognition and machine-based translation, the new interpreter tech is capable of translating a telephone conversation in real time. Imagine trying to reserve a hotel room in Kyoto -- you'd almost certainly have to begin with the "Do you speak English" rigmarole. Instead, simply download Docomo's app and every word you utter will come through in Japanese. The only indication that you're not from Nippon might be the strangely robotic voice that replaces yours.
This technology has the ability to turn every boardroom, cafe or lounge into the U.N. general assembly, where everyone has their own personal translator. Amazing!
