Language barriers are a major obstacle to national and international goals for public health, health equality and integration. Over 1 BSEK/year are spent on interpretation by Swedish regions and municipalities, mostly in healthcare - not including larger hidden costs of unnecessary complications, visits, tests and caregiver workload that occur due to miscommunication.
To address this growing problem, Mabel AI has developed a fully private voice-to-voice translation solution that enables instant communication between patient and healthcare provider. Importantly, unlike cloud-based translation apps, our solution guarantees confidentiality by performing all AI operations locally in the phone or tablet. The unique in-device technology makes Mabel compatible with data security requirements in health care and many other areas, such as education. Moreover, it means that Mabel can be used anytime and anywhere regardless of network access - such as on flights and even in bomb shelters.
