Offline Speech Translation

An unfulfilled gap – Until Now!

We achieved the Offline Speech Translation with data compression breakthroughs – making M2 the first-ever device, allowing users to converse freely without cellular network restrictions.

In order to use the Offline Speech Translation, users need to connect M2 with our free app and download the Offline Speech Translation Pack. The pack currently supports ALL of the following languages.

The Offline Speech Translation Pack is available for purchase as Add-On Perk during checkout! But why not help us hit our stretch goals to make it FREE!?

 

Real-Time Translation

A Personal Interpreter Directly in Your Ear

Timekettle is recognized for our exclusive real-time translation technology in 40 languages and 93 accents.

Every sentence you speak will be translated and played directly in the other person’s ear – in real-time! Your conversations are now enhanced and they are more efficient than ever did before.

 

Easy to Use

3 Translation Modes

Accommodate All Possibilities

We’ve engineered and integrated three different translation modes to make challenges easy for you.

Touch Mode

Speak and translate simultaneously

Simply touch the force sensor on M2 when you need to speak, and the translation will play directly in the other person’s ear – entirely wireless, comfortable, and natural.

Lesson Mode

Activate our Lesson Mode, and place your phone on the table to capture speeches from classes with astonishing clarity. Our comprehensive engines will make sure every word is translated into your native language with the utmost accuracy.

It can even translate movies or any videos of your preference. If you stick one in your ear, you instantly understand anything said to you.

Speaker Mode

A quick switch from anything to translation.

The Timekettle M2 will recognize and translate your spoken sentences, then play them through the speaker of your phone. Want to respond? Simply tap the button on the app! You’d be surprised by how efficient it can be for quick questions and answers.

“I’d have to recommend these as a travel tool for anyone going abroad. The real-time translations did exactly what they claimed to do with great success.” — By Kai Powell

“Die Timekettle M2 sehen wie ein weiterer AirPod-Klon aus China aus. Doch die kleinen Ohrstöpsel können weitaus mehr als Apples True-Wireless-Kopfhörer. Sie spielen nicht nur Musik, sondern übersetzen auf Wunsch auch 40 Sprachen direkt in eurem Ohr. Wie gut das gelingt, klärt der Test.” — By Jan Kluczniok

A Timekettle nagyon eltalálta a forma és a funkció egységét, a négy fordítómotorral dolgozó algoritmus megdöbbentően hatékony…—By Brigitta Gemeiner​

“I have used the M2s in a restaurant with 15 others and the translation worked to my satisfaction. Timekettle says it is 93% accurate, but I know it is more than that as they continually update their translation engine in the cloud.” — By Chris Rauschnot

“Sin duda, es un gadget interesante que puede ser de mucha ayuda en un viaje, ya que como se ha mencionado en repetidas ocasiones en esta reseña, adicional al sistema de traducción también funciona para contestar llamadas y escuchar música.” —By Monica Hernández

Our Achievements

An Evolution From Extensive Experience

In September 2017, we launched the WT2 in-ear translator campaign on Kickstarter – the project was fully funded and managed to rack up a total of $276.869 from 1640 backers.

After we fulfilled all the pledges, we upgraded and launched the WT2 Plus on Amazon. And in less than a month, WT2 Plus had become the #1 Best-Seller in the Translator category.

Then came our second campaign – ZERO: Reinventing the Translator – For Everyone. Before we knew it, the ZERO was the Most-Backed project on Indiegogo, Taiwan ZecZec, and Makuake Japan. We fundraised nearly 2 million thanks to our users’ trust and support. They- and there, you- helped make it come true, and we’re endlessly grateful.

Ultimately, leveraging our experiences from creating the WT2 Plus and ZERO, we are now adding a new layer of excitement to maximize the return on our users’ investment – and that is music and calling feature to make the M2 universal.

We have taken things to the next level with the Timekettle M2 – an all-in-one solution. And the irresistible, super-affordable price is just an added bonus.
