How to Get Live Translations for 80 Languages with Travis

Visiting a foreign land always comes with a few challenges. Most of all, the language barrier can be quite frustrating. It can cause severe difficulties with directions and local transport, however hard you concentrate on your phrase book. Business travelers may not have the opportunity to study at all. Thankfully, technology is here to help. A new pocket translator, named Travis, can take anything you say and repeat it in any one of 80 languages. Even the most frequent flyer should be covered.

– Instant translations for 20 languages offline with one-touch controls

– Get translations for 60 more languages via WiFi or mobile data

– Noise-cancelling technology, AI software, 12 hours of battery life

80 Languages in One

The communication problem is one of the primary reasons why some people avoid taking vacations abroad. Meanwhile, refugees and migrants often find themselves cut off from their new communities. Of course, there is no replacement for learning a language — but technology can grease the wheels for the journey.

That’s where Travis comes in. Using advanced AI software, this device recognizes your mother tongue and converts it. For many languages, you don’t even need to be online for the device to work.

It means you can concentrate on seeing the sights or getting to your meeting, and still interact with the locals. Plus, you avoid those embarrassing slip-ups caused by bad pronunciation.

Pocket Translations

To start using Travis, you simply touch the front of the device and start speaking. Dual noise-cancelling microphones pick up your voice, even in crowded stations or airports. Travis also has noise cancellation to ensure your message gets through.

The device’s quad-core processor then gets to work, turning your language into something the locals will understand. Travis utilizes the speech engines of several different companies for the best possible coverage. In addition, the translations improve over time.

Other pocket translators exist, but none offers this powerful mix of software. Furthermore, Travis is ready for production — the prototypes already offer live translations.

You can view and select the output language via a small touchscreen, with 20 available offline. Provide Travis with WiFi or cellular data, and you get 60 more languages to choose from.

Speech Not Text

Perhaps the best part about Travis is the way it delivers translations.

When you stop someone for directions, they can hear your translated words via Travis’ built-in speaker. As a result, this device lets you have a normal face-to-face conversation.

“Ever wanted to speak to someone in another language? Now you can. We’ve put 80 languages in a handy device for people to have a chat, do business or maybe even fall in love. With Travis you can go global and speak local.” — Travis Translator on IndieGoGo

What We ❤️

Being able to speak to anyone in the world is a powerful thing. Better still, this tiny device has the battery life to last all day.
