Google prepares phone translation technology

Google working on software that instantly translates phone calls in real time.

The application will use voice recognition technology to translate whatever is spoken into it, covering all major languages, and more importantly, attempting to cope with regional accents.

Google Translate already handles 52 languages, and Google will be able to take advantage of its massive archive of translated material to continually improve accuracy. And because phones are generally used by only one person, voice recognition software would be able to adapt to the user’s accent and intonation.
