Globalization has rapidly diminished geographical and cultural barriers, however; language barriers still play an important role in preventing the discussion of ideas and information. Our goal is to provide a simple to use, intuitive medium that allows people from all corners of the world to get in touch with each other, regardless of what language they speak.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
Today MeGlobe, Inc. launched the full release version of their real-time translation offering, MeGlobe. First introduced as a closed beta service in April, 2008, MeGlobe combines traditional instant messaging (IM) with real-time language translation technology to offer users instantaneous communication across multiple languages.
In an era where geographical distances have long been eliminated from communication, language barriers still pose many challenges. MeGlobe addresses these challenges by allowing people from all over the world to communicate in real-time, even if they don't speak the same language. Users can also make their own contribution towards eliminating language barriers by editing the translations performed by the system. These edits are then stored and used to to improve translation accuracy and quality.
The insights gained throughout the beta testing period have allowed MeGlobe, Inc to revise the user interface of its offering and add new key features. Special care was given to enhancing usability and intuitiveness while retaining the seamless, web based functionality of the beta version of the application. As CEO, Giancarlo Tallarico, states, "Globalization has rapidly diminished geographical and cultural barriers, however; language barriers still play an important role in preventing the discussion of ideas and information. Our goal is to provide a simple to use, intuitive medium that allows people from all corners of the world to get in touch with each other, regardless of what language they speak."
Key features included in this full release are:
IM Translation Engine - MeGlobe's Translation Engine provides seamless communication by allowing users to type in their native language and instantly translating their message into the language of their chat partner.
Translation Contribution - Users are able to contribute to the translation engine through the ability to edit system-provided translations to increase accuracy. The edits then become a part of the knowledge base and in effect teach MeGlobe to become a better translator. This feature addresses many of the shortcomings associated with machine translation and provides new opportunities for collaborative language learning.
Multi-lingual Group Chat - Allows users to create multi-lingual chat rooms driven by MeGlobe's proprietary machine translation engine. Chat rooms are capable of supporting an unlimited amount of users, simultaneously chatting in up to 15 different languages.
Multi-network support - provides users access to AOL, Yahoo and AIM chat services while still offering full IM translation functionality.
MeGlobe, Inc. is a privately funded communications company based in Los Angeles, California whose goal is to make online communication both synchronous and truly borderless. MeGlobe, Inc will be one of the very first companies to apply internet technology to tap synergies between the market for translation services and user generated content.
