US Soldiers To Use Smartphones With Translation Capabilities In Afghanistan

US Soldiers To Use Smartphones With Translation Capabilities In Afghanistan

The TRANSTAC Project is an effort to break the language barrier between the military and locals.

Naresh Kumar

In a bid to help US soldiers deployed in Afghanistan communicate better with the locals, the National Institute of Standards and Technology is collaborating with DARPA to make smartphones work as translators. The ‘TRANSTAC Project’ will enable speakers of two different languages communicate spontaneously in real time using devices with speech recognition and translation technologies.
