A university professor in Arizona is working on a system that can translate animal noises in to English.

亚利桑那州的一位大学教授正在研究一种可以解读动物叫声的系统。

The extraordinary technology, which has been designed by Professor Con Slobodchikoff at Northern Arizona University, is currently being developed with the vocal calls of prairie dogs in mind but could later be adapted to work with just about any animal, including domestic cats and dogs.

这项新颖的技术由北亚利桑那大学的康·斯洛博奇科夫教授开发,目前被研发用于解读草原犬鼠的叫声,但将来可以适用于其他任何动物,包括家猫和狗。

Slobodchikoff has spent the better part of 30 years studying the unique and complex sounds prairie dogs use to communicate danger to one another whenever a predator is sighted nearby.

康·斯洛博奇科夫教授花了30年的时间研究草原犬鼠在附近看到捕食者时用来传达危险的独特而复杂的声音。

The translation device, once perfected, should be able to turn those sounds in to human speech.

翻译设备一旦完善,应该能够将这些声音转换为人类语音。

According to Amazon researcher William Higham, pet translation devices could be available for the average consumer to purchase within ten years.

亚马逊研究人员威廉·海厄姆也曾表示,普通消费者可以购买的能解读宠物叫声的设备将在10年内问世。

Technologies like this will also make pet training and the diagnosis of medical problems much easier.

这样的技术也将使宠物训练和医疗诊断变得更加容易。

That said however, if it really was possible for your dog to speak to you, what would it say ?

但是,如果你的宠物狗真的有可能跟你说话,它会说什么呢?
