Pocketalk Language Translation Device Introduced at Edinburgh Airport

Pocketalk, a device that enables speech to be translated into 74 different languages, has been introduced at the security area at Edinburgh Airport to help international passengers. Pocketalk allows staff and passengers to speak into it before the translation is played through a speaker or displayed on screen for the other to read and understand. The introduction of the device will make the security process easier by breaking down language barriers, helping both passengers and staff to explain and understand each other. It will also be rolled out to other passenger-facing teams across the terminal.
