Amazon Wants To Turn Alexa Into A More Complex, Real-Time Translator

Alexa's English, German, and Japanese skills will need to be rounded out when she becomes what Yahoo reports as a "multilingual assistant who can help in nearly any situation".
The sources also expect that one day Alexa will be so advanced that a single device could translate multiple people speaking multiple different languages at the same time. By doing so, it would be able to instantly serve up a useful, accurate translation for a person from the U.S. who only speaks English and is attending a wedding in Tokyo. The smart voice-based assistant will reportedly integrate its knowledge of the Japanese culture to make the translations more accurate.
