Language Translator and Synthesizer for Mobile

Abstract


The Machine Translation domain of Natural Language Processing and the area of Artificial Intelligence are very useful in providing people with a machine, which understands diverse languages spoken by common people. It presents the user of a computer system with an interface, with which he feels more comfortable. Since, there are many different languages spoken in this world, we are constantly in need for translators to enable people speaking different languages to share ideas and communicate with one another. Human translators are rare to find and are inaccessible to the common man. With the concept of Machine Translation we may work towards achieving the goal using easily available computer systems. Besides, one of the first linguistic applications of computers to be funded was machine translation. The English to Marathi translator designed will be very useful to people who don’t understand English.

Speech synthesizer is the artificial production of human speech. A computer system used for this purpose is called a speech synthesizer, and can be implemented in software or hardware.
