Bridge The Language Divide: Translate Full Spoken Sentences Into Foreign Language Counterparts Without A Human Translator

The VoxTec Phraselator is a small handheld unit which is capable of taking a spoken input phrase from a human being and to select automatically the correspondent sentence in a target language while playing it back with the appropriate accent and tone. Designed with the US Army in mind, this new technology shows the tip of the iceberg in translation technologies future trends. While this leading edge technology sets you off more than a couple of thousand dollars, you can anticipate a future in which this is only a few hundred bucks, is appropriately integrated in your PDA/phone/communication apparatus as well as in your IM and Web conferencing system and it can also be easily deployed in your face-to-face voice conversations when in a far-away country.
