The VoxOx (News - Alert) real-time chat translation solution is built directly into VoxOx's communications software, enabling people who speak and comprehend different languages to stay connected. The chat translation software will automatically translate the language of the person you're communicating with over SMS, IM and e-mail, on both sides of the conversation.
Only one person needs to have access to this translation service for it to work for both users. It boasts the capability to instantly break down language barriers in a variety of mobile and electronic communications.
In addition, VoxOx users can use this software to translate and broadcast their Twitter (News - Alert) @replies, as well as hold two-way translated chat conversations with loved ones, business associates or friends on Facebook and Myspace. According to an article featured on GIZMODO, users only have to complete a few simple steps to get their translation service to start working.
First, users can open up the VoxOx Universal Messaging Window, choose the language they speak and the language the other chat participant speaks, and then engage in conversation whether it be through sending text and chat messages, e-mails or Twitter @replies to anyone located anywhere in the world.
"Never before has it been so easy for people of different languages to communicate instantaneously," said Bryan Hertz, CEO of TelCentris, the creator of VoxOx, in a statement. "We expect this innovation to help friends, relatives and business colleagues better communicate and connect with each other
"The VoxOx Universal Translator breaks down language barriers and has important business implications as well – for example, providing better customer support, or communicating with colleagues, partners and business contacts in another country and another language," said Michael Faught, president of TelCentris. "We look forward to the global feedback on this service. We are very excited and proud to launch this new capability for our users worldwide at such an international venue as the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert)."
The service is fully compatible with instant messaging services such as Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live, AIM, ICQ, Skype and GoogleTalk.
