AT&T begins Trials to Translate Text Messages

AT&T has begun trials where a text message sent through their network is automatically translated to the preferred language specified by the user. So if someone sends a message in Spanish, AT&T will be able to recognize if the receiver prefers the message in English or not, and if so AT&T will automatically translate it. Currently the service only works for English and Spanish, but AT&T is already working on expanding the structure of the technology to include more languages.

With this technology, language barriers could become even more broken, allowing two people who speak different languages to understand one another through their mobile device.
