Traveling can be intimidating if you don’t speak the language in a country, especially when a lot of translation apps seem to butcher everything you’re trying to say. Now, Google is seeking to improve AI translation with its new program, Translatotron.
In the company’s announcement, Google describes Translatotron as an end-to-end, speech-to-speech translation model. Essentially, Google is hoping to ditch the usual speech-to-text and then text-to-speech method — which is what Google Translate currently does.
