ROK´s ´BabelBar´ Multi-Language Translation Service for Enhanced Internet
Accessibility and Usability Launches on Google Chrome Store
BabelBar, ROK´s highly innovative multi-language text-to-speech translation
toolbar, now compatible with Chrome, Firefox and Safari internet browsers,
is designed to overcome the inherent language barriers of social media
networking and the internet as a whole.

ROK Global PLC, the mobile, web and industrial technology, applications and
services company, has announced its ´BabelBar´ service, which enables
universal multi-language audio and text translation of website content, is
now compatible with Google Chrome and is available to download free of
charge on the Google Chrome store.
BabelBar, an amalgam of ´Babel´ - defined as ´noisy confusion´ - and ´bar´
because the application is a browser-based toolbar, currently provides a 20
language text and audio translation service to include English, Spanish,
French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Norwegian,
Finnish, Dutch, Czech, Polish, Greek, Turkish and Korean.
Babelbar is free to download and free to use and will be funded through
advertising in due course.
Commenting, Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROK said ´Babelbar has already
proven very popular with Safari and Firefox users because the internet as a
whole is not universally accessible and usable - and neither are individual
websites - due to inherent language barriers. Now, with Babelbar compatible
with Google Chrome, the ability to have the text on any website, anywhere
in the world, read aloud to the visitor and to be translated in subtitles,
in their own language, is a hugely compelling and exciting development on a
grand scale. Everyone believes social network sites to be global but in
reality, they are only global if everyone understands the language people
are conversing in. We believe BabelBar is the most advanced and innovative
application available for this purpose and, as such, we believe BabelBar
has the potential to be adopted on a massive scale by internet users
BabelBar has been developed by ROK to understand many of the popular social
media abbreviations in use, to include the translation of such words as
´LOL´ and ´ROFL´ and various ´emocions´ used to convey emotions.
BabelBar will now be promoted by ROK to technology-focused user groups
around the world to encourage a virally-driven mass adoption of the
´While we know BabelBar is a very cool and fun application, there are
further and more practical benefits of BabelBar which include an increase
in the accessibility and usability of the internet to those with visual
impairments and those with severe dyslexia as well as serving an
educational purpose for those learning a second language.´ Added Kendrick.
ROK Global PLC was co-founded by US Billionaire John Paul DeJoria and
UK-based serial entrepreneur Jonathan Kendrick. In addition to being the
co-founder of ROK, John Paul DeJoria is Chairman of John Paul Mitchell
Systems, the manufacturer of Paul Mitchell hair care products as well as
