System and method to do just-in-time customized translation through personal portable device

With the trend of IoT, more and more devices and apps are created every day. Translation of each menu and message would be very costly and time-consuming, especially considering the translation update in each release or deployment. Language coverage is also another concern as users may come from different countries and speak different native languages .

Even more, a word or a term may have several different translations. Wrong translation will mislead or confuse the users on using an app or device. Translation would need to be able to be customized for different purposes, different industries, or user preferences.

This disclosure is to provide a system and method to do just-in-time customized translation through portable personal device.

The personalized globalization preference and predefined translations are stored in mobile device . Users can replace any displayed translation of target object with preferred translations through wireless interconnection ;the proposed solution also allows real time translation from local translation store or on line translation services.

The advantage of this invention:


- For IoT service providers, low or 0 cost to fulfill translation requirement
- For product development, eliminate the dependency on translation and enable the flexibility to translate into any language
- For end users, portable and on-demand translation based on personalized preference
- For Healthcare industry, doctors can always read the preferred disease translation on different devices to avoid

misunderstanding


- For Transportation industry, travellers can have just-in-time translation on any panel or devices in a bus station or airport
