Illustration for article titled Japanese to English Instant Translation via Mobile

NEC has announced a new mobile phone that can recognize up to 50,000 spoken words in Japanese, and provide near-instantaneous translation into written English. The idea of instant machine translation was developed nearly a century ago by science fiction pioneer Hugo Gernsback, who wrote about a "language rectifier" in the story "Ralph 124c 41 +".
