Free multilingual voice translator app VoiceTra for your Japan Travel

With the long-awaited recovery of inbound tourism, multilingual support is an essential part of the framework to accommodate international travellers in Japan.

In July 2010, the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), a national R&D corporation under the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC), released a multilingual voice translator app, ‘VoiceTra’.

The app was developed under an “all-Japan” system to achieve the MIC-led goal of establishing a society without language barriers for international travellers in Japan by 2020. It covers 31 languages, including Malay, Indonesian, Arabic, and English, completely free of charge(*).
*Data network charges are borne separately by the user.

Some languages are available for speech input, automatic language identification or speech output. It has a highly user-friendly interface with a simple system design.

As of 30 June 2022, the app has been downloaded 8.2 million times in total, with a 3.8/5 rating on the App Store and 4.0/5 on Google Play, making it a popular app for communicating with foreigners.
