Naver Launches Papago Translation App

Naver officially launched its translation app papago on Wednesday, about a year after trial service began.

Several auto-translate apps are competing for the market, with Google, Microsoft and Baidu in the lead.

Papago is a "neural machine", i.e. capable of learning from mistakes and user input. Naver claims it can translate five or six newspaper articles or one thesis at a time, rivaling Google Translate.

It can only handle English, Chinese, Japanese, French and Spanish, though the lineup of languages will expand to Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian and the Taiwan's Hokkien dialect soon. At the moment the app is free.

Psy Launches New Album After Creative Struggles

Rapper Psy on Wednesday released his first studio album in more than a year and music videos of some high-profile tracks.

The title of the album -- "4X2=8" -- contains a pun, as numbers 4 (sa) and 2 (i/ee) pronounced together in Korean sound like Psy, and the album is his eighth.

His style remains unchanged as he showcased up-tempo dance music with catchy hooks and fast patter. Videos once again feature stars like actor Lee Byung-hun.

Psy confessed he felt he had hit a stalemate about two years ago. "The music and lyrics I wrote started to sound old to me and I wondered whether I would ever be able to overcome this stage after I entered my forties", he said. "Also there were more and more people pointing out that my songs all sound too much like 'Gangnam Style.'"
