Siri is the undisputed victor when it comes to foreign language support

33 sec read

I’m sure by now we’ve all seen those commercials comparing Siri to Cortana and Google Now with each one claiming that its respective voice assistant is superior, but while most of that is objective there’s one area where Siri is the undisputed victor: foreign languages.  

The world of speech technology and personal voice assistants is picking up quickly and has an incredible amount of potential for future innovation. Siri isn’t the only player in this market anymore and Apple, Microsoft and Google all have their sights on revolutionizing what is possible with speech technology. There are many reviews out there comparing Siri, Google Now, and Cortana, but as a language technologies company, we decided to do things a little differently. We put Siri, Cortana, and Google Now to the test in five languages to see which voice assistant has the best multilingual chops. Our savvy multilingual team asked 18 questions in English, Italian, French, German and Mandarin.
