Business traveler? Digital nomad in a new country? Finally going on that holiday to a faraway place you have been dreaming of? Whatever your situation, verbal communication is personal to you and should flow naturally, even with people who speak other languages, right? Now there’s a translation device as personal as your own experience with languages, Timekettle’s AI-enabled wearable translation device, the WT2 Edge Translator Earbuds.
This is not just another translation device. Timekettle’s WT2 Edge multilingual translation earbuds are known to surpass user expectations and deliver where other devices fail: making multilingual communication as personal as speaking with a dear family member in the same language. The WT2 Edge translator is all about communication first, regardless of language.
For a few years people around the world have seen hand-held translation devices, mobile apps, and in-ear devices come and go. All claim to provide automated translation but fail to deliver on that personal and natural aspect of communication. Most devices also fall short on translation accuracy, clarity, and ease of use.
It was personal experience that led Timekettle CEO, Leal Tian, a science fiction fan, to develop the company’s wearable translation devices. A character called “Babel Fish” in the movie “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” made a lasting impression in Tian. The character drills into people’s ears to allow people speaking different languages to understand each other instantly.
What Sets Apart the WT2 Edge Translation Earbuds?
From individuals to entire multinational teams, everyone can now hold long conversations in different languages without awkwardly passing devices back and forth or putting up with long pauses and unreliable translations.
Good quality translations are delivered with incredible speed and sound clarity. In fact, the impressive HybridComm™ technology places the WT2 Edge multilingual earbuds in a class all its own: in a comparative analysis, the WT2 Edge earbuds ticked all the boxes for what users of translation devices want, including charge duration, translation accuracy and speed, and sound clarity with built-in noise filtering.
Translations are powered by several well-known translation engines, including DeepL, Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, and iFlytek. The WT2 Edge Translator Earbuds enable natural bi-directional communication in 40 languages and up to 93 language variants when connected to a wifi or a cellular network. Offline language communication is also possible in eight languages
Long Chats in Many Languages with a Lightweight Device
Versatility is integral to the WT2 Edge Translator Earbuds. The simul mode is great for talking with anyone without making pauses between sentences to wait for the translation. These are the first earbuds in the market to offer truly bi-directional simultaneous translation for a natural conversation.
There are three additional modes you can use based on your situation: touch mode, which activates voice reception with a simple tap and translation with another tap; speaker mode, where one person speaks to a mobile device and the other one wears the earbuds, and listen mode, which, as the name implies, allows you to hear the translated version of a live speech in your mother tongue.
The WT2 Edge earbuds offer a great feature for meetings, too: the group chat mode allows up to 200 people to chat via audio messages in up to 40 languages in the same online meeting.
A Lasting, Comfortable, and Secure Experience
The WT2 Edge earbuds also boast a truly ergonomic and lightweight construction. They are 46% lighter and 33% smaller than the previous generation product. They can be worn for a long time while remaining comfortable.
The earbuds battery charge lasts a long time: up to three hours on a single charge. They also maintain their charge for 12 hours while in the portable charging case.
A conversation-enabling personal device should also be efficient when it comes to connectivity. In the WT2 Edge earbuds, true bi-directional simultaneous translation is possible through a wifi or a cellular network. Once connected, the device is enabled through a simple app via bluetooth.
Additionally, the WT2 Edge device also supports speech-to-text and text-to-text recording, using the Timekettle app. The recordings are automatically saved to the cloud in the chosen language, ready to be downloaded or distributed.
Timekettle takes user data security and privacy seriously. As with any app, users want to be assured that their data (personal and generated through use) is secure. Encryption algorithms and the SSL encryption protocol ensure user data is protected and secure, minimizing the risk of information theft. When data needs to be shared with third-party partners, such as Microsoft and Google’s cloud services, Timekettle adheres to strict data anonymization policies to ensure that user privacy and security are maintained at all times.
The WT2 Edge earbuds are also designed to locate the nearest server in the user’s location. For instance, for US schools, the server IP addresses Timekettle provides are all within the US.
