Mashups using the same API (2572)
Have you ever been sick in a foreign country but unable to communicate what you needed? Or robbed and needing help without the cash to pay for it or the language to convey it? That's what happened to the two founders who went on to create Verbalizeit out of that experience, Ryan Frankel and Kunal Sarda. Their Verbalizeit API lets you connect users to human translators on conference calls and on the web.
iKnow, a social learning site launched last month by Japanese company Carego, have launched an API (our iKnow profile) to allow third parties to "add a little Learning and Linguistic magic to [their] applications, widgets and other mashups." iKnow allows users to take virtual English and Japanese language lessons (other languages are promised for the future) and guides and tracks their progress. Through the social component users can share their progress with friends, leave comments, keep journals, and compete for rankings.
Let's talk languages: in this case, not computer programming languages, but human languages. According to the 2009 edition of the SIL International publication Ethnologue: Languages of the World, the estimated 328 million English speakers in the world are dwarfed by the 1.2 billion people who speak Chinese as a first language. And though English has become the lingua franca of many tech industries, users still prefer to interact with products and services in their native tongue. No doubt this was one of the factors which led FlightStats, Portland-based provider of global flight tracking and airport information, to start offering its FlightStats API data in languages other than English.
