First there were linguists- bright individuals with years of training, highly paid and in high demand in the emerging Frontier.

But Greed is king and in an effort to grease the wheels of commerce the emerging Pan-Gal corporation paid a dralasite linguists to develop the common trade language Pan Gal. This greatly facilitated both commerce and communication.

At about that time new computer programs were developed that allowed even novice linguist to be almost as effective as the masters of their craft but with computer support.

Sensing an opportunity PGC introduced a line of translator and protocol bots into the markets in the early days of the Frontier. These were mildly successful before being superceded by the avent of the poly vox.

About the time of the Food Riots on Pale and the expeditions to Volturnus the polyvox became available to the general public.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
