Google’s Real-Time Voice Translator Could Make Any Language Lingua Franca

Google engineers are working on a translator for Google Android smartphones to convert one language into another quickly enough to allow speakers without a common language to communicate with one another in near real time.

We’ve seen a few stabs at this concept, like a 63,000-word real-time translator and a cute 400-phrase iPhone app, both of which we compared to Douglas Adams’ Babel Fish from his Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy novels — the same comparison drawn by Times Online and Mashable about Google’s voice translation plans.
