Hartsdale, New York (PressExposure) February 03, 2011 -- POINT PLEASANT BEACH, NJ - As social networking continues to grow many people are getting to know different people around the world. But this communication stops because of language differences. This is where SpeechTrans Ultimate, a new version of the popular language translation app, can help. It allows users from different locations with different languages to communicate. SpeechTrans Ultimate is now available in the Apple's app store. So anyone that has an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch can buy it there.
SpeechTrans is a well-known language translation app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. It currently has 17 apps that provide uni and bi-directional translation in nine different languages, including US English, UK English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, and Portuguese. All are available in the Apple's app store.
The latest version of the SpeechTrans is the SpeechTrans Ultimate. It combines 39 apps in one with 38 language combinations of all the nine languages available on the past versions of SpeechTrans. It also integrates Facebook Chat with multi-lingual voice input and translation. Users can now communicate, where ever they are in the world, easier and faster.
SpeechTrans Ultimate is preloaded with 400 transcriptions, with more available via in-app purchase. The sound it produces is very natural sounding, unlike with competitive products. Users can choose a "female" or "male" sounding voice for further customization. SpeechTrans achieved this realistic sound by utilizing a third party company's technology that recognizes and reproduces faithful real dialects from various languages.
With this app you can also dictate status updates in your Facebook account-all by the power of your voice. This is possible because of the SpeechTrans' Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology, powered by Nuance Communications, a world leader in multiple technologies including speech recognition, conversion and scanning, and automotive applications. Boasting more than 6,000 employees and 35 regional offices, Nuance offers unparalleled research and development resources to perfect its products. "By partnering with Nuance, we assure that our translations lead the market in terms of accuracy and speed," said Frei. "Furthermore, we can continually add more languages to our SpeechTrans service as Nuance rolls out more language capabilities over time."
Future plans of SpeechTrans include Android operating system compatibility in the first quarter of 2011, and BlackBerry in the second quarter.
