Cairns-based DoTalk has developed proprietary technology which it says enable users to simultaneously engage in cross-language communications with six different translation APIs and speech recognition tools providing what is claims is e the most accurate translations possible.
Users can message either via text or a “hold & talk” microphone and can also conduct a group chat with up to 10 people in multiple languages in real time. The interface is claimed to be intuitive, with inviting contacts and adding language and accent being a simple process.
Australian founder Reno Nicastro said, “Our goal with DoTalk was to create a free, fun and easy-to-use app which provides an open forum for people to easily connect and communicate, regardless of language barriers or location and without delay.”
After extensively beta testing, DoTalk has registered users from a wide range of countries and languages, with English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, French and Indonesian proving the most commonly used.
“We are currently working on DoTalk Premium applications that will run on the current DoTalk Real-time Translation Technology Engine, and "DoTalk Team" for Business,” he added.
