DoTalk promises to break down language barriers

A QUEENSLAND-invented instant, voice-activated translated chat app promises to break down language barriers across the world.

DoTalk is a free app, invented in Cairns, which promises to rapidly translate chats in words and voice in up to 90 different languages.

DoTalk is available across all iOS and Android Smartphones and any Internet connected devices.

The technology enables uses six different translation APIs and speech recognition tools combining to provide the most accurate translations possible.

Users have the option to message either via text or a 'hold & talk' microphone, and can also conduct group chat with up to 10 people in multiple languages in real time.

The interface is intuitive, with inviting contacts and adding language and accent being a simple process.

"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," says Aussie founder, Reno Nicastro.

"With applications across everyday life, from business to travel, dating and everything in between, now nothing will be lost in translation. We live in a truly global economy so DoTalk has benefits for absolutely everyone."

"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."

The language industry is big business, with the worldwide language services market growing at an annual rate of 5.52% according to The Common Sense Advisory, 2016 Report.

The size of the overall global language industry in 2016 was estimated at $40 Billion (USD), with estimates of up to $45 Billion by 2020.

"We are currently working on DoTalk Premium applications that will run with 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."

"As a nation of travellers and world-beaters in business, it is only appropriate then that this app was conceived in Australia, and believe DoTalk will only further facilitate our ability to take on the world!", Nicastro added.
