One of the wonderful things about Star Wars was that even though you couldn’t understand some characters, you still understood them. But what if you could plug in Chewbacca’s growls and R2-D2′s beepity boops into Google Translate to find out what they’re saying? Nate Smith of Awkward Elevator did just that, and it’s exactly what you expected.
Sometimes Google translate doesn’t get it quite right. To illustrate that point in the most outlandish way possible, CDZA took the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme, crunched it through Google Translate for all 26 supported languages, then took it back to English.
It’s unlikely that you speak Mandarin, but that doesn’t mean you won’t need to at some point. Now, Microsoft has created software that can analyse your speech, translate it and then spit out a new recording of your very own voice speaking in a different language.
Google Translate just got what is essentially Word Lens. The new feature in the latest update of the Google Translate app lets you take a picture and highlight text you want translated from one language into another.
If you’re travelling in Brazil and you’d like to ask your cab driver which bar in Rio serves the best caipirinha, you’re going to need to know Portuguese. Thumbing frantically through a phrasebook is difficult, and you might not string the sentence together properly. And would you even understand your cabbie’s answer? SayHi Translate solves all these problems with a super simple voice translator.
Ever wonder what you’d sound like speaking German? Or maybe Mandarin? Microsoft Research has a new technology they’re cooking up which will take the sound of your voice and synthesise it as part a spoken language translator.
Siri is more powerful than Apple lets on, so it’s up to the tweaking, hacking, tinkerish souls of the jailbreak community to unleash her full potential. Like this latest Siri hack, Lingual. It’s a jailbreak-only tweak that turns Siri into a translation device. Just say what you want to Siri, name the language you want to translate it to, and Siri will display it in its translated glory.
