Participants in a voice call do not always have a common language. This can pose problems since participants may not be able to understand each other during the call. Some current techniques to address this problem involve incorporating a machine translator that can perform translation. However, for machine translation to be provided to all participants, such techniques require a machine translator mechanism to be provided at each participant’s end, which is not always possible.
The techniques of this disclosure incorporates machine translation techniques on a participant device such that the device can perform local translation of speech in a call. Machine translation is performed to automatically translate speech in the call, e.g., between the languages spoken by participants at the near and the far ends. In this manner, automatic translation of voice calls is enabled for all participants in a voice call.
