This paper presents a wearable device, the Yak, that aids cross-language communication. The Yak produces utterances in the native's langauge at the user's command. The use of a heads-up display allows the user to operate the device while maintaining eye contact with the native and sending and receiving non-verbal signals. This paper describes requirements for a communication aid, the Yak's user interface, the Yak's current hardware configuration and scripting language, and the results of the first round of experiments.
