The idea of a universal translator—one that can translate between any
two languages nearly instantaneously—has long been a staple in the
world of science fiction. But with our current generation of powerful
processors, advanced machine learning algorithms, and seamless cloud
computing, science fiction is fast becoming reality.
“You could say that it’s the oldest problem in the world. But it’s one
that we can finally solve using today’s technology and the power of
crowd sourcing” said Yan Auerbach, chief operating officer of
SpeechTrans Inc. That’s exactly what the five-year-old New Jersey
company has done in creating an advanced speech-to-speech translator
that enables people to conduct complete conversations with anyone in
the world in a wide range of languages.
SpeechTrans does this by seamlessly integrating leading-edge
technologies including Speech-2-Speech (S2S) translation software,
Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), Language Translation, and Text-
To-Speech (TTS) systems. SpeechTrans employs cost-effective machine
translation whenever possible, boasting accuracies of up to 95 percent
for 44 supported languages. SpeechTrans also offers users the option to
request a live translator for the most vital situations. Drawing from a
team of about 2,500 community-sourced interpreters, this pushes
accuracy levels effectively to 100 percent with any of 144 languages.
