    Hi Hafiz

    There is a device which does this already - the computer. :)
    This does not sound like homework either, because no teacher could be that unreasonable. So why do you want to reinvent the wheel?

    Google text to speech programs, choose one that supports the languages you will be working with... Support to integrate these programs into most computer OS systems is generally built in so they are easy to setup...

    no a computer is a few things, smartphones now have apps to do this. there are little translation computers that you swap out the memory card for each language and it says the phrase for you. these are no bigger than a smartphone and smartphones have dual core processors now. don't think a computer is a laptop or even a desktop. the raspberry pi fits in your hand and is the exact same as a tower.
