Does Internet provide tools for VOICE translation?

I used Youtube's BETA transcribe and translation but it read funny. Check pic out.

is that 2000 MPH ? That is pretty fast serve. Why is he not on the ATP tour ?

Great serves. The only part I don't like is the big step he takes with the forefoot. That can easily result in foot-faults.

The Youtube BETA transcription and translation service don't work properly. Best bet would be to drag in an interpreter.

That's a great video. The frame rate looks like 2000 frames per second. The shutter speed is very fast so that the motion blur is small and you can see everything, the ball on the strings, etc. The dual views, from side and above in the same video are not coordinated and may be of different serves.

I especially like the close up videos of the arm starting at 9:17. It shows 3 separate serve videos. Maybe someone can at least translate to identify each of the 3 serves. Are they the same serve repeated or do they show flat and two spin serves? (The racket on the video to the right travels more to the side.)

The video might be good enough to see how much pronation (forearm) actually occurs before the impact. The internal shoulder rotation (upper arm) is very easy to see by looking at the elbow area and upper arm.

( My earlier thread on when does pronation occur relative to internal shoulder rotation.

I still don't know.)

First one is flat, then a slice, and then a top spin / kick serve. I think the guy's explanation is pretty straight foreword. Nothing you guys haven't heard on this board.

I just watched the video and it does look great. As for the translation of his comments, he's really not saying anything different than what you can find in other instruction sites like The Fuzzy Yellow Ball. The usual relaxed arm, toss positions for different serves, pronation with frame edge coming first, etc.

I am Japanese and speak fluently.
