New ili Translator Allows Users Instant Translations On The Spot
The world of translation has just gotten smarter and faster. Now you can have translations done on the spot instantly with a new wearable device called ili that saves you the time and trouble of looking things up and stumbling through pronunciations that you invariably slaughter anyways. Who wants to thumb through pages of words and phrases so that you can parse together sentences that don’t make sense when you can just speak into a microphone and have it instantly translated audibly in an authentic accent with all the nuances that make you immediately understood?
With this new technology gone are the days of making people wait while you clumsily try and get your point across. The translation device is making its debut this week at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and it’s in all likelihood going to take the world by storm. It’s a small electronic device that looks more like a remote control or i-product attached to a chain, so you can wear it around your neck and use it anywhere, anytime you need it. The best part is the look on people’s faces when they hear the translations in fluent speech. This is so cool it’s bound to become a best seller in no time.
With the ili, travelers for business or pleasure will soon be able to sail through foreign countries with confidence without the need for books, guides or handheld electronics resembling calculators in tow. Because it comes with a tethering chain, you’ll always have it right at your fingertips without having to search among your belongings or turn to a hired tour guide for help trying to make your point. This frees you to sally forth fearlessly in any number of circumstances that otherwise would have left you feeling intimidated or lost due to the language barrier.
This new translation technology contains its own OS, which allows it to translate instantly, and there’s no need for Internet. That means you can use it in remote areas where modern conveniences are far and few between. It contains a library or travel lexicon that currently supports Chinese, Japanese and English and includes a powerful speaker that drowns out background noise, so you can make yourself heard almost anywhere. The product will be available to consumers in the summer of 2016, and the manufacturers have plans to expand the product to encompass dozens of languages. If it’s a success, as is predicted, it probably won’t be long before it’s capable of translating hundreds of languages.
Learning Foreign Languages
Besides using the ili for travel purposes, the device would undoubtedly be helpful for people wanting to learn a foreign language, once it’s developed. Since it plays back whatever you’ve just said, it would be a great tool for hearing the proper way to pronounce and enunciate with just the right inflection without having to sit in front of a computer. Why not brush up on your Mandarin on the fly during your morning commute or on your lunch break? There’s no word yet on how much it will cost, but if you’re interested in trying it and seeing how it works firsthand, you can go to their website and test it right now.
