Google showed off a new application that translates conversations on Android mobiles at a recent conference in Germany
Google employees held a conversation over two Android mobiles with one person speaking German and the other English. The application worked its magic after each persons statement and then referred the translated message back to the other person.
The application is in a very early stage but worked almost flawlessly, with only a few sentences needing to be repeated. The potential for the application is huge especially in the business sphere and would no doubt improve business relations world-wide.
Google also didn't rule out "live translation" in the future, where there is effectively zero delay between speaking and the translated message being relayed, which is a staggering thought.
