Pittsburgh, PA -- Mobile Technologies, LLC, developers of “Jibbigo,” the leading iPhone apps for speech-to-speech foreign language translation, today announced that the top-selling voice translators are now available for Android devices through the Android Market. Users of Android devices now have access to the world’s only voice translation app that functions without an internet or phone connection.
Android users can now utilize Jibbigo translators to translate spoken language between English and any of the following languages: Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Korean, Iraqi Arabic and Filipino (Tagalog).
"We’re very excited to bring Jibbigo translators to the Android platform," said Dr. Alex Waibel, Mobile Technologies’ Founder and Chairman. "With the explosive growth in the number of devices supporting Android apps, this significantly expands the number of people who can use our voice translators worldwide.”
Jibbigo voice translators have been available for Apple iPhones for more than a year, and were the first apps in the category of “Speech-to-Speech Translators” – users simply speak into the phone in one language, and the statement is automatically translated and repeated aloud in another language. Jibbigo is the only app of its kind that functions without an internet or cell phone connection – enabling users to communicate in foreign countries without the fear of losing connectivity or the risk of incurring high roaming charges.
Since the launch of Jibbigo for the iPhone in October, 2009, the app has garnered significant praise for its groundbreaking technology. In May 2010, Apple featured Jibbigo in international television campaigns for the iPhone, and the Jibbigo Japanese-English translator become a top-selling app in Japan within the first two weeks of its launch. In August, Travel & Leisure magazine named Jibbigo a “Top Travel App” for 2010.
