Chat in Multiple Languages on Your Android

LinguaSys has launched its TransGen Mobile app today, promising the first multilingual private mobile chat rooms for Android clients. Rather than just a personal translation service, this app will allow groups to participate in real-time chat, even if they speak multiple languages.

The Android app offers private persistent chat rooms of up to 500 users per room. The app also offers a personal translation option when not in a chat room. But as the need to communicate globally is increasingly real-time, it’s the ability to chat that makes the app useful.

There’s also an enterprise, self-hosted version that offers more moderation and control and is available on multiple devices, including Androids, iPhones, and desktop clients.

LinguaSys is a machine translation company and the new app uses the company’s technology to “provide higher accuracy and produce superior comprehension in the translation of complex corporate short-life communications including text chat, e-mail, web pages and documents.” Initially designed as a translation tool for the military, the Android app brings this tech to the international business community.

But as machine translation can be notoriously mediocre, the pressure will be on this app to not just provide quality translation, but to do so in real-time.
