SpeechTrans, a provider of speech recognition and translation software, announced the launch of SpeechTrans Ultimate, a multi-lingual translational app for Android (News - Alert) devices. 

A two-way speech recognition software solution, SpeechTrans Ultimate offers text-to-text, text-to-speech and speech-to-speech conversations in a number of languages. It can also be used along with Facebook (News - Alert) chat option.

“We are very proud to offer SpeechTrans Ultimate for Android users, as part of our continuing goal of eliminating language barriers from personal communication,” said Yan Auerbach, co-founder of SpeechTrans, in a statement .

 “SpeechTrans Ultimate for Android offers users maximum flexibility with unlimited translations, which encourages people to use it frequently without hesitation,” Auerbach added. “Availability for Android devices with our unique Facebook chat integration helps us bring real-time accurate translation to an ever larger global audience.”

When users speak loud to their Android handsets, the speech recognition app translates it into the language desired by the person on the other end via Facebook chat interface.

The speech-to-speech is available in multiple languages like English, U.K. English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Italian, German and Mandarin Chinese.  The text-to-speech variant of this speech recognition software also supports Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Dutch, Swedish and Arabic.

The software also allows users to store translated conversations for further use and the Android app offers unlimited transcriptions.

SpeechTrans already offers this app for the iPhone (News - Alert). With Android support, the speech recognition software now provides multi-platform translational communications, company officials said.

The SpeechTrans Ultimate translation app for Android handsets is available for download at SpeechTrans.
