West Palm Beach and Beijing -- Communicating between Chinese, Spanish and English just got a whole lot easier with today's launch of a multilingual chat service for Skype, called Moka Chat. Moka, the leading provider of mobile language translation and communication services, today announced the release of its language translation technology for Skype, which gives Skype users the ability to chat in English, Spanish or Chinese with other Skype users.

With over 2 billion people in the world identifying English, Chinese or Spanish as their first language, Moka is leading the way to provide mobile language translation and learning solutions in support of both the consumer and business markets for an increasingly borderless world. Having recently partnered with China Mobile to bring its mobile language translation service to the Chinese market, Moka is now expanding its reach across new markets and communication platforms with Moka Chat for Skype. Using Moka Chat, English-speaking Skype users can now easily send translated text messages to Chinese or Spanish Skype buddies, enhancing their Skype experience while at the same time improving their language skills. In addition, Moka Chat for Skype enables users to send translated SMS text messages using Skype's built-in text messaging service.

Moka Chat for Skype is now available for free during the beta period and can be downloaded from After downloading and installing the Moka Chat for Skype application and selecting a language pair, users can easily enable real-time language translation for any text messaging conversation with anyone on their Skype buddy list. Because it allows the user to see both the original and translated text every time a message is sent, Moka Chat is also a powerful language learning tool. Moka's learning-while-chatting feature makes language learning fun and interactive for all Skype users.

"Skype is one of the most popular and effective services in the world today for global communications, and we are excited to be adding a high-value multilingual communication capability for Skype users. Moka Chat for Skype is the ideal translation solution for a community with such a vast multilingual user base," said Diego Winegardner, President and Co-founder of Moka.

Pioneering Language Translation

Moka is a pioneer in the field of translation technology. With its proprietary artificial intelligence system, the company's goal is to provide the most accurate mobile and online translation service in the world. Moka's state of the art translation technology is perpetually learning, and the more Moka is used, the more accurate it becomes. As a result, Moka is perfectly suited for large multilingual communities such as Skype where the viral nature of its service can be leveraged to enhance the communication experience for everyone.

Michael Donahue, CEO and Co-founder of Moka adds, "With over 700 million people learning English in Asia today and over half of the 45 million Latino-Americans in the US seeking to improve their English fluency, we are in a position to breakdown language barriers and at the same time provide a completely new paradigm for multilingual communications and language learning."

In addition to Moka Chat for Skype, Moka provides Moka Chat for SMS, Moka Translator for SMS and other language learning products.
