Voxbone Enables Lexifone to Launch Automated Phone-Translation Service

voxbone_logo2.jpgVoxbone is enabling Lexifone to launch a real-time language-translation service that combines Lexifone's innovative automated phone-interpreter technology with the superb clarity of Voxbone's voice services.

The new Lexifone service, aimed at consumers and businesses, allows each party in a telephone call to speak and be heard in his or her chosen language. It is being launched worldwide after availability to selected users in closed beta trials for the past five months.

Lexifone is a service, not an app, that may be used on any phone – landline, mobile or VoIP – without an Internet connection or software download. To reach Lexifone's translation bridge, users simply dial local telephone numbers that Voxbone will make available in more than 50 countries, then select the languages and the numbers of the people they want to call in 120 countries. Lexifone translates the caller's spoken language, such as French, into the language the called party can understand, such as German, and vice versa.
