In most countries, people have to spend a lot of time learning a second language while in school. However, there`re hundreds of different languages in the world, no one can learn them all. One of the most famous philosopher, Marx could speak more than ten different languages, which is already extraordinary for human beings. The difference between languages is a great handicap of communication between people from countries all over the world. A group of people planned to make a global language and ask everybody to learn, but finally the plan failed. Now there is a great need for an invention that can solve this problem.
If I could invent something new, I would develop a electronic translator. Unlike electronic dictionary, which can just translate a word into different languages, it can also translate a whole paragraph even a whole book into different languages. What`s more, it can even translate the language you speak orally into other languages. For example, when you speak "Hello" in English, it will say "nihao" in Chinese automaticly when you switch it to Chinese.
It`s obvious this kind of invention is needed, and when it`s invented, I believe it will spread out every where in the world immediately. Then people won`t have to waste a lot of time to learn foreign languages, and the communication between people from different countries will become much easier. Moreover, it will enhance the speed of globalization, which benefits everybody in the world.
For it to be invented, there`s still a long way to go. But the science and technology is developing and more and more new things have been invented. In the future, the electronic translator will be invented, and it will bring people more convenience.
