DoTalk breaks down language barriers

DoTalk claims to break down barriers to communication, with the ability to rapidly translate chats in words and voice, in up to 90 different languages. It is available for iOS and Android smartphones and Internet-connected devices.

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.”

 “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.”
