TLDR: Meta has launched the AI-powered translation engine "Seamless M4T" which facilitates language translation in text and speech.
The engine enables direct translation from spoken words to another language without converting to text first, making it versatile.
Released under a Creative Commons license, Seamless M4T supports various translation modes, including text-to-text, speech-to-text, text-to-speech, and speech-to-speech.
Notably, the engine doesn't rely on intermediate models, allowing it to be more flexible and capable of handling language mixing.
Google has also been active in language translation innovation, as seen in its AudioPaLM project.
The Big Picture: This technology has significant implications for breaking language barriers in a globally connected world, enhancing cross-cultural communication, and enabling businesses to engage with broader audiences.
