Google, the largest search engine company that also manages many other technologies, has stated that it is working on universal translator, for voice. The idea is not that new, but Google plans to be able to have the creation ready to use in a few years to come. As of now, many programmers are planning on using current voice detection software, like that seen on Android mobile devices. The problem however is when accents are used in different speaking languages, but fixes are planned to be implemented for the system in he following years upon release. Even instant translation is being expected, so users of the technology can have the new language spoken for them by a computer almost instantaneously. If this technology does in fact take off, it will be interesting to see the widespread use of it not only on vacation trips, but in phone calls across the world in everyday life, including business.
