Speech translation
API service

A cloud-based vendor API service that provides a function to translate conversations. It can be used for multilingual communication tools. We provide speech recognition, machine translation, and speech synthesis processing for 12 languages including Japanese in one package.

* A portion of the technology is incorporated into the product by Mirai Translate, Inc. using the results of the R&D of communications technology by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, "Promotion of Global Communication Plan—R&D and Social Demonstration of Multilingual Speech Translation Technology—I. R&D of Multilingual Speech Translation Technology" and the results its succeeding research, "R&D of the Advancement of Multilingual Speech Translation System during Disasters." The NICT speech translation engine, which is the result of National Institute of Information and Communications Technology's (NICT) research, is used for speech recognition, machine translation, and speech synthesis processing.

Equipped with the NICT's latest speech recognition, machine translation and speech synthesis engines

High translation accuracy is achieved by a neural machine translation (NMT) engine that supports spoken language sentences. Vendors that provide services to assist with communication in foreign languages can help provide more accurate and complete multilingual communication services. It can be used for multilingual speech translation terminals and apps. The multilingual speech translation engine used in this service also provides software licensing.

About translation security

Two key features

  • Speech translation

    By combining speech recognition, machine translation, and speech synthesis processing, high-precision speech-to-text and text-to-speech are realized.

  • Customization

    You can store nouns such as product names, technical terms, and special internal terminology in the dictionary, and you can store specific sentences such as email phrases and manuals in the memory.

Three types of high-precision speech translation processing

Speech recognition

Speech recognition processing for use in conjunction with machine translation. You can retrieve the recognized text string by specifying the language and sending speech data.

Machine translation

By specifying the source and target languages and sending a text string, the translated text string can be obtained. Speech recognition text string can be translated by machine translation.

Speech synthesis

Speech synthesis processing for use in conjunction with machine translation. Synthesized speech data can be obtained by specifying a language and sending a text string. By synthesizing text obtained by machine translation into speech, the translated text can be played back as speech.
