                 Time Globalization of Presentations or Other Electronic Displays Based on GPS Coordinates

When a meeting or conference includes a global audience or an audience whose native language is different from the presenter's language, a method is needed to alter the speaker's presentation to meet the linguistic needs of the group.

The novel solution is a system that enables dynamic updating of the language in presentations using global positioning system (GPS) coordinate information.

If a GPS-enabled laptop identifies that its current location is different from its home location, it then determines if the primary language at the current location is different from the home location's language. If so, then if the laptop is used for a presentation, the novel system automatically and dynamically updates the slides to show the material in the primary language of the current location.

The steps for implementing the system and method in an example embodiment follow:

1. A presenter has a GPS-enabled laptop along with a presentation application capable of interpreting GPS data

2. The presenter travels to a new location (e.g., from the UK to the US)

3. When the preparing to begin the presentation, the presenter clicks on an option in the presentation application to allow for dynamic translation of the slide deck 4. Based on GPS data, the presentation application determines that the laptop is now i...
