Lingmo Translate One2One FAQs
What is Lingmo Translate One2One?
Lingmo Translate One2One is a translation earpiece that allows face to face conversations to be translated between 2 languages. Users each have an earpiece and can speak in their own native language with translations happening between users in Realtime.
How does the Translate One2One work?
Translate One2One works by translating between two languages. After selecting the desired languages from our 29 languages, the earpieces are placed on each user’s head. The user then taps the earpiece screen, speaks, releases their finger and the translation is played in the foreign speaking person’s earpiece. They can reply by pressing their screen, speaking and releasing their finger from the screen to send the translation to the other person.
When do I know when to start speaking?
After you have pressed the flag you will hear a beep which is the prompt to start speaking. You will have approx. 2 seconds after the beep to start speaking. If you take longer than 2 seconds to start your conversation, simply repeat the process within the given timeframe.
How does the secondary user operate the earpiece?
The secondary user will hear the conversation through their earpiece and can reply by touching their screen and speaking. The secondary person will need to be standing within one metre of the primary user.
How will I know which earpiece to use in what region?
Translate One2One allows users to use the earpieces around the world however due to different frequencies the primary earpiece can only be used to enable the function of translation. The earpiece marked with 1900 sticker is the primary earpiece to use with a SIM if you are in the Western Hemisphere. The earpiece without the sticker is for primary use in Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania.
The secondary earpiece is connected via Bluetooth to the primary earpiece and doesn’t require a SIM card.
Only the primary earpiece requires a SIM Card.
Does a SIM Card come with my Translate One2One?

Why does Translate One2One need a SIM card to make it operate?
Translate One2One was designed so the user did not have to rely on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity to operate. A SIM Card provides faster translation time however if you are in an area with strong internet connection service the earpieces will also work well with WIF-FI.
How are the quality and accuracy of the translations measured?
Accurate translation is born from having superior speech recognition software. We know there are a number of variances that can affect good translation, so we have built a system that includes noise cancelling array microphone software and AI translation that detects nuances and dialects. Lingmo has several systems in places to continually manage and ensure consistent accurate translations are delivered to our customers. Our audit system checks for accuracy, fluency, terminology, grammar and contextual understanding. Asides from the AI always learning and becoming smarter the more it is used, we also continually perform enhancements to improve the accuracy and translations.
How fast will Translate One2One translate a conversation?
