Submission + - Real-time phone call translator app to be offered by NTT Docomo->

another random user writes: An app offering real-time translations is to allow people in Japan to speak to foreigners over the phone with both parties using their native tongue.

NTT Docomo — the country's biggest mobile network — will initially convert Japanese to English, Mandarin and Korean, with other languages to follow.

The products have the potential to let companies avoid having to use specially trained multilingual staff, helping them cut costs. They could also aid tourism. However, the software involved cannot offer perfect translations, limiting its use in some situations.
