The latest availability of the app aims to primarily benefit the Asian markets, which sees high usage of Android devices. Vocre has also included compatibility with five additional languages for the socially-driven, real-time language translation app.
 
In a statement, Andrew Lauder, founder and CEO, Vocre said, "Businesses are global, while language is local. By taking advantage of the rapid penetration of mobile technology across the world and an engaged community, Vocre provides a superior method for people to communicate instantly across different languages. With better context comes better understanding, and allowing new ways of interacting with others in this diverse world is a huge milestone for technology."
 
Vocre's live language translation app continues to hold a 4.5 star rating at the iOS app store. Currently, Vocre has recorded a minimum of 2.6 million downloads of its app for iOS devices. The app has successfully translated at least 70 million times since it was launched. The app is capable of translating into 36 languages, offering best-in-class speak recognition, manual text query and rectification tool. A straightforward interface, affordable and entertaining user experience is possible due to Vocre's proprietary technology. The latest app also incorporates hybrid offering, wherein enhanced accurateness is possible due to the merger of computerized and crowdsourced translation.

As per IDC (News - Alert) research, the Android is the most widely used operating system, with 75 percent of the smartphones that were shipped during the third quarter of 2012 incorporating Android.
 
Lauder said, "We've all learned the hard way that machine translation alone falls short on providing proper context and accuracy. Personal communication requires proper context for understanding and in business situations; accurate, real-time communication fosters success. We're working hard to continue leading and improving a solution to address both needs in the marketplace."
