This following literature review concerns the idea of how the adoption as well as diffusion of language translation technology looks at assisting in the identification and analysis of potential business opportunities. This aligns to use of such a type of technology in the most effective manner for society reaping the most benefit from the products created and sold. Society remains the fundamental conduit for diffusing a technologically based language translation products proving the intersection between the two requires adaptation measures for successful interaction. The literature review provides how the patent process, the information technology (IT), educations settings, and in government where the use of a language translator product by a specific part of society makes for a better global community.
Review of the research on “Universal Translation: An Emerging Technology” provides one underpinning message about any technological advances having a potential for providing entrepreneurial opportunities. This is only possible when there is an almost symbiotic relationship between the consumer (society) and the technological consumer product. The following literature review discusses aspects of this requirement in terms of the relationship of society, technological products, and the best outcomes for applying technology creating a universal language translator.
Looking at the invention of a universal language translator considers the issues arising from technology and misuse of patents is the private and social costs incurred by non-practicing entities (NPE) in the process of direct marketing of the technology. These types of entities in the world of technology meant for marketing to consumers obtain their patents so they can license it to others. This creates a middleman economy and for the consumer it raises prices on the products. According to authors of this article, Bessen, Ford, and Meurer (2011) there exist inventors lacking both the expertise and resources required for successfully licensing their technologies. Others with the same limitations also enforce their patents if necessary. Consequently, NPEs serve as a means for such inventors earning rental usage of their technology that otherwise may not happen. Herein, the entrepreneurial implications arises for potential controversy because this is the only means for providing inventors the incentives for innovation and fits the development of a universal translator. It is a case of waiting on the research when wanting development for finding a way for marketing the technology. The fact remains developed nations markedly continue investing in technology as a means for creating a better society and provide the most likely future means for creating and marketing a universal language translator.
According to Alves (2014) this rationale of developed nations’ heavy investment in technology for improving society is about innovation and knowledge. In doing so it is about all proving sustainable through investing in knowledge management. This applies to any current or future of development of any form of a universal translation device and other technological products in general. This aligns to what Alves (2014) includes in his study connected to the Theory of Reasoned Action. It remains rational how technological advancement and the good of society as in the case of information technology (IT) management allowing people, organizations, and institutions the ability for tracing their goals as well as achieving them in a changing world. The framework of this looks at closing gaps in the world of knowledge technologically through intelligent marketing as would similarly arise with a universal language translator product. This underpins technology and education applications in marketing practices.
In their research article (Lim, Zhao, Tondeur, Chai, and Tsai (2013) reveal how technology continues its historical mark on changing learning processes in classroom practices. Classroom transformations resulting from the blend of instruction and technology reveals a shift of the teacher role as the sole source of learning to that of facilitator serving a more complex position of providing lesson objectives and deliveries to students, of negotiating, as well as providing varying degrees of support for monitoring students' progress as well as encouraging student reflection on classroom instructional activities aligned to the technological advancement use in the delivery of materials. This results in students having a more active role in taking responsibility for their own learning process through use of technology in ways including research, collation of information, and opportunities for publishing their research findings. Markedly this article shows the continued implications of the benefits to society of classrooms globally having access to a universal language translator in targeting second language students having equal opportunities for attaining educational goals in the classroom. The last of the literature review is how technology makes the global world of politics run better with the beneficial use of a universal translator.
Modem circumstances, according to Zamora-Torres (2014) concerns technological innovation and implementation as crucial for governments competing in both a domestic and international framework connected to the role of economic systems. Among nations developing and managing knowledge effectively through technology proves they perform better. Herein, the logical and pragmatic application of a universal language translator in this process shows an obvious benefit such technology would provide by linking faster and more efficient communication at the international government level.
Based on the “Universal Translation: An Emerging Technology” research article providing one underpinning message about how technological advances providing entrepreneurial opportunities as existing only when there is an almost symbiotic relationship between the consumer (society) and technological consumer products framed the above literature review focus connected to the benefit of using of a universal language translator. The above literature review discussed varying aspects of this requirement in terms of the relationship of society, technological products, and the best outcomes for applying the purchase of a universal language translator in creating a better world for everyone as provided by the examples.
