Robot as Translator

Your Next Translator In Japan Might Be A Robot

Adnan Farooqui | October 4, 2015

Over the past three years Japan has seen a rapid increase in the number of foreign tourists coming to the country, figures from Japan Tourism Marketing show that close to 2 million visitors arrived in the country in July 2015 alone. There’s a substantial language barrier for most visitors some of which choose to rely upon translators, but it’s quite likely that your next translator in Japan might be a robot, particularly if you visit next year.
