In this day and age it seems like a good idea to know more than one language. However, depending on your location and what you do for a living, even being bilingual may not be enough. So how do you deal with those times where language becomes a major barrier in communication? A pocket translator will help, but wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to translate speech in real-time? Now there is, and it’s on your phone.
Vocre is a new app that will allow you to input speech from one language, and have it play back in another. Just imagine how invaluable this would be when you’re in another country on business, or meeting with an exchange student for the first time. In the future, the company hopes to be able to translate calls in real-time, so you can carry on a conversation in two different languages, without missing a beat. For now, you’ll have to be satisfied with the simple back-and-forth translations. You get 10 of them for free when you download the app, but you’ll have to pay around $.10 for each after that. You can buy ahead of time in bulk for a discount as well.
