Moka today unveiled Moka Chat, a mobile language tranlsation service for Skype.
The tool gives users the ability to chat in English, Spanish or Chinese with other Skype users. Clearly there is a lot of value in a solution like Moka. Both businesses and consumers can essentially carry on dialogues/conversations and actually learn a little while they are doing it. This is clearly important in an increasingly borderless world.
Moka Chat for Skype is available free during the beta period. After downloading and installing the application and selecting a language pair, users enable real-time language translation for any text messaging conversation with anyone on their Skype buddy list.
"Skype is one of the most popular and effective services in the world today for global communications, and we are excited to be adding a high-value multilingual communication capability for Skype users. Moka Chat for Skype is the ideal translation solution for a community with such a vast multilingual user base," said Diego Winegardner, President and Co-founder of Moka.
