The story
Arabic Language Buddy by Sakhr gives English speakers a live speech translator into Arabic. Users can freely speak (or type) English sentences into their iPhone, then view and hear the Arabic translation immediately.

Why this story inspired me
An application like this makes it possible for people to communicate with other people that speak a totally different language. It connects people.

What I hope sharing this story will lead to
I hope that through communication applications like these people will start to understand eachother’s views better.
