Title: System and method for enhancing human communications

Abstract: Provided is a system and method for enhancing human communications. A user selected first language is translated to other languages, using translation rules. A language may be a visual representation, audio representation, and/or a physical form representation. A language also has multilingual characteristics, and can be a single word or a dialogue. A first user communicates to the present invention in a first language of terms familiar and methodology desirable to the first user. The present invention uses translation rules to correlate the first language with a second language, according to a translation member, of the translation rules, which contains a translation record that matches the first language. A translation record in the translation member is then used to communicate a second language of terms familiar and methodology desirable to a second user. Selectable user interface modes include a tree menu mode, a static response mode, a dictionary mode, and an alphanumeric mode.
