New Alcatel-Lucent Technology from Bell Labs enables Instant Language Voice Translation (ILVT)


Tony Guez, Application Business Development Director, Alcatel-Lucent France, here explains how this universal language translation service is provided through telephones and the Internet: "As one person begins a conversation in English, the service translates the dialogue in real-time, so that the person on the other end of the phone – say in Spain – hears a version of that dialogue in their native tongue in real-time. The system also produces an instant text output of the dialogue which could be viewed on the screen of the telephone." "And we also offer a conference call mode: I say "Hello", Roberto hears "Ciao", a few seconds later Joules hears "Bonjour" and José hears "Ola" – all in the same conversation, all at the same time and each accompanied by instant text on his own screen. Roberto was on a smart phone, Joules was using VOIP, and José was on his landline."
