Australian messaging app instantly translates voice and word chats

It can translate up to 90 different languages.

A free messaging app that instantly translates voice and word chats was recently launched and is now available on all iOS and Android smartphones.

Invented in Australia, the DoTalk app allows users to simultaneously engage in cross-language communications easily and more accurately than any other messaging app available, with six different translation APIs and speech recognition tools combining to provide the most accurate translations possible.

Users of the app have the option to message either via text or a "hold & talk" microphone. They can also conduct a group chat with up to 10 people in multiple languages in real time. The app also features free voice and video calls.

DoTalk Founder Reno Nicastro said the goal of the app is 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.

“Whether you are travelling, booking a cab or hotel overseas, want to communicate with international relatives, someone exotic you’ve met online, as the modern-day pen pal, or you just want to learn another language – DoTalk is the tool to connect you to people regardless of where they are or what language they speak,” Nicastro said.

He said the app already has registered users from a wide range of countries and languages in its Beta testing, with English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, French and Indonesian proving the most commonly used in the app.

Moving forward, Nicastro and his team are planning to add more features and functionality over time that will further enable broader industry applications including regional/global conference calls, customer service, education, media and customer engagement.

“As the market continues on a growth trajectory, we believe we have assembled an exceptional team and that we have the best messaging app platform in the market. We are currently working on DoTalk Premium applications that will run on the current DoTalk Realtime Translation Technology Engine and DoTalk Team for Business. DoTalk Premium will break down language barriers by providing real-time communications tools to get the job done,” he said.
