Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for displaying visual content to a user corresponding to sound captured at a user terminal are disclosed. After receiving over a network from a user terminal a request to convert sound into a visual content representing the sound, wherein the sound comprises one or more words, a translation server may retrieve text corresponding to the one or more words from a database. The translation server may then convert the text into one or more content phrases, wherein the content phrases represent the meaning of the one or more words, and convert each of the one or more content phrases into a new language. Finally, the translation server may send visual content to the user terminal representing the new language.

La présente invention concerne des systèmes et procédés d'affichage de contenu visuel à un utilisateur correspondant à un son capturé sur un terminal utilisateur. Après la réception sur un réseau à partir d'un terminal utilisateur d'une demande de conversion de son en contenu visuel représentant le son, le son comprenant un ou plusieurs mots, un serveur de traduction peut récupérer du texte correspondant au ou aux mots dans une base de données. Le serveur de traduction peut ensuite convertir le texte en une ou plusieurs phrases de contenu, les phrases de contenu représentant la signification du ou des mots, et convertir chacune de la ou des phrases de contenu en une nouvelle langue. Finalement, le serveur de traduction peut envoyer du contenu visuel au terminal utilisateur représentant la nouvelle langue.
