SpeechTrans Ultimate First Windows 8.1 App to offer Real-Time Speech-to-Speech Translation, Dictation and Instant Messaging on Facebook, Google Talk, Yahoo! and AIM

SpeechTrans Eliminates Language Barriers On the World's Most Popular Social Networks

LYNDHURST, N.J., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SpeechTrans Inc., provider of the world's most advanced translation technology, announced today that the company's updated SpeechTrans Ultimate app for Windows 8.1 is the first to offer real-time text and voice translation over Facebook, Google Talk, Yahoo! and AIM. By finally allowing speakers of different languages to have fluid and accurate conversations over popular social networks, SpeechTrans has eliminated language barriers between speakers of 26 different languages. With the new SpeechTrans Bluetooth Wristband Watch, the company has also brought instant translation to phone conversations in the car or on the move.

As an innovator of real-time, automated speech-to-speech translation over any device, SpeechTrans powers conversations for governments, militaries, educators, students, travelers and global businesses. In the latest updates to SpeechTrans Ultimate for Windows 8.1, the company has launched new features that make the most powerful global communication tool available even more versatile, productive and accessible for users.

Real-Time Translation on SpeechTrans and Social Networks

With the new SpeechTrans "Chat" feature, users can now enjoy via speech-to-speech translation during instant messaging with other SpeechTrans users from around the world. SpeechTrans Ultimate's social integration also provides real-time translation over Facebook Messenger, Google Talk, Yahoo! and AIM. With the ability to translate speech-to-speech, speech-to-text, text-to-speech and text-to-text, users get seamless, accurately translated conversations in whichever format they prefer.

SpeechTrans' speech recognition technology allows Windows 8.1 users to eliminate language barriers and facilitate conversations across the world. Only one person in a conversation needs SpeechTrans Ultimate since the app can translate outgoing messages before they are delivered and translate incoming messages before they are received.

"SpeechTrans Ultimate is a communication 'Swiss-Army Knife' for global travelers, students and businesspeople," said John Frei, CEO of SpeechTrans. "The app is quickly becoming the new lingua franca, and we're proud to bring an improved version to Windows 8.1 users."

Dictation and Cloud Storage

SpeechTrans Ultimate now allows Windows 8.1 users to dictate notes, reminders, emails and more, eliminating the frustration of typing on error-prone mobile keyboards. SpeechTrans Ultimate securely saves previous dictations and translations in the cloud for easy retrieval from any web device.

Wearable SpeechTrans Bluetooth Wristband Watch

Users can now make and receive phone calls and translate conversations in real-time using the new SpeechTrans Bluetooth Wristband Watch. The wristband vibrates if users walk 30 feet away from their device, ensuring that users won't forget their phone while relying on Bluetooth. While the wristband is ideal for answering calls in the car, it can also play mp3 music and features an audio jack if users wish to keep conversations private or listen to music with regular headphones.

The SpeechTrans Bluetooth Wristband Watch is compatible with all smartphones, PCs and tablets with Bluetooth capabilities. The bracelet offers 3 hours of talk time, 60 hours of standby time, an LED caller ID display with contact list synchronization, a noise cancelling microphone and a very loud speakerphone.

SpeechTrans Ultimate is the only app that offers military-grade translations and voice recognition without a tedious training process. SpeechTrans is the only startup in the Northeast that belongs to the Microsoft Managed Partner program, and the Windows 8.1 app was developed in conjunction with Microsoft's development team.
