Jiri Maikusiak, our Marketing Specialist for Czech Republic, has participated in an online science conference called “Healthy Brain and Memory Day”. The online meeting was a part of the Brain Awareness Week held by Dana Foundation, a private philanthropic organization from New York, whose goal is to advance understanding of the brain in health through numerous research grants and public outreach.

The “Healthy Brain and Memory Day” conference was held on November 29, 2021. Jiri prepared an presentation about our company and the Vasco translators for a group of passionate specialists who are especially interested in speech and the brain. During the meeting, the representatives of the Faculty of Information from Prague (Fakulta informačních technologií ČVUT v Praze) also mentioned our cutting-edge voice translator as a part of their talk on speech and technology.

Healthy Brain and Memory Day

As mentioned above, the “Healthy Brain and Memory Day” conference was conducted online. During the online meeting, the participants focused on many topics related to the brain and memory — one of them was speech. This topic was introduced from several perspectives. First, the talk focused on the part of the brain, where the speech originates. Second, the conference participants asked the following question: how to take care of speech and how to save speech in case of brain damage. And last, but not least, the topic of speech was examined from the perspective of learning foreign languages.

There was also a discussion about speech and technology and that’s where our voice translators were mentioned. Then, we had an opportunity to present our company and our devices.

The presentation of our company

The presentation of Vasco Electronics concerned the topics such as the company’s structure, history and products. For instance, one slide of our presentation displayed a complete timeline of the voice translators we create — from the very first device that translates voice released in 2013, to the flagship Vasco Translator M3, released in 2020.

We also talked about the significant moments in the history of Vasco Electronics. For instance, we mentioned the openings of online stores in various countries and entering new markets, such as Japan. But, what’s also important is that we showcased what makes us truly special and unique in comparison to other voice translator producers.

We are the only electronic translator provided that offers free, lifetime and unlimited internet access for the purpose of translation, which runs in as many as 200 countries. Other producers put a limit on a SIM card with the internet access, meaning that after reaching the limit, it is necessary to buy a data package. Some producers don’t provide internet access for translation at all. The internet access is crucial when it comes to using either a translator app or a voice translator device. Having to use your own data means additional or hidden costs — no such thing with Vasco Translators.

What’s also important is that our devices work with as many as 10 translation engines, as opposed to other devices or translator apps which only have 1. Having multiple translation engines means, in our case, that the device chooses that one engine which provides the best translation for a given language pair — for instance, when translating from English to Spanish or from Arabic to Japanese. This is a significant feature, as it ensures that the translation accuracy is very high (96%, as a matter of fact) — it’s especially important in emergency situations, when there’s absolutely no room for misunderstandings.

Speak More Languages Now

What is more, Vasco translators provide instant translations to and from over 70 languages, offering a native-speaker-like pronunciation. You can definitely feel like a local, anywhere in the world.
