The days of hearing “I no understand” could be coming to an end.
A new devise is about to go on sale which allows foreign language translation almost instantly straight into your ear. The Translate One2One is powered by an IBM super computer and is understood to be able to complete a translation in between 3-5 seconds.
The product is said to be able to avoid the more common deciphering errors and stumbling blocks. Lingmo International the company who make the One2One Said “It overcomes many of the contextual challenges associated with common languages, as well as understanding the nuances of local slang and dialects.”
The devise is due to start shipping next month and will cost around 6,000 bath (£140.00). The current languages available are English, Japanese, French, Italian, Brazilian, Portuguese, German and Chinese.
Both participants in the conversation need to be wearing one of the devises but perhaps the most exciting and important feature of the devise is that it does not need to be connected to a phone via blue tooth or Wi-Fi meaning it can be used in the more remote locations.
Perhaps this handy little tool will make future trips to Thai villages to meet mamma and papa a little easier.
