Alexa real-time universal language translator project tipped

If you're wondering why Amazon's digital assistant Alexa has gone quiet today, it's because the platform that powers Alexa is experiencing an outage. To a small degree, Alexa already does this-it's capable of translating basic words and phrases into Spanish, German, French, and Italian. Just like Microsoft translator and Google Translate, Alexa could place many language translators out of business. This is according to eMarketer who reported that since the first time Amazon Echo was launched, tens of millions of Alexa devices have been purchased.
Citing "several sources familiar with the matter", Yahoo Finance reports that the engineering team responsible for Alexa is "seriously exploring" adding language translations and other capabilities that could benefit different languages and cultures. Alexa will also be mindful of the Japanese culture, which is more formal and conservative than American culture. "Alexa, what do I say to the father of the bride at a wedding in Japan?" By doing so, it would be able to instantly serve up a useful, accurate translation for a person from the U.S. who only speaks English and is attending a wedding in Tokyo.
"I've had an awesome couple of years at Amazon Alexa working with some of the smartest people I know". Context and cultural awareness is something that's still missing.
Amazon's Ambition to turn Alexa into a real-time translator seems to be taking a page from Google Assistant. Google Pixel Buds has a similar feature and obviously work with a Google Assistant.
Beyond language itself, the company wants Alexa to gain a well-rounded knowledge of the cultures in which the translated languages are spoken.
