Docomo launches free voice translation service

Friday 2 November 2012 | 00:57 CET | News
Japanese mobile operator NTT Docomo has launched an automatic translation service for voice calls. The LTE/3G-compatible service provides rapid translation between Japanese and Chinese, English and Korean. The translation is processed by the network, not through the handset or an application, and then the translation provided through voice synthesis. The service can be used two ways: phone-to-phone or face-to-face. From late November, face‐to‐face interpretation will be available between Japanese and ten other languages. To use the service, the caller needs the free Android app and the service is also provided for free but voice and data charges apply.
