A new Australian app has been released to help break down the language barrier and provide instant voice-activated translations in up to 90 different languages.
DoTalk, which was developed entirely in Australia, is available for iPhone and Android and uses proprietary technology to accurately provide cross-language communications that includes six translation APIs (application programming interface) and speech recognition tools.
Users have the choice of sharing a recorded voice file or text message which is then translated to text for the recipient.
It is possible to hold a group chat of up to 10 people at a time in multiple languages in real time.
The DoTalk interface is intuitive and allows you to easily invite your contacts as well as adding languages and accents in a few short keystrokes.
“Our goal with DoTalk was to create a free, fun and easy-to-use app which provides an open forum for people to easily connect and communicate, regardless of language barriers or location and without delay,” says Cairns-based founder Reno Nicastro.
“With applications across everyday life, from business to travel, dating and everything in between, now nothing will be lost in translation. We live in a truly global economy so DoTalk has benefits for absolutely everyone.”
“Whether you are travelling, booking a cab or hotel overseas, want to communicate with international relatives, someone exotic you’ve met online, as the modern-day pen pal, or you just want to learn another language – DoTalk is the tool to connect you to people regardless of where they are or what language they speak.”
