Microsoft rolling out Skype Translator for Windows

140

Microsoft has started rolling out Skype Translator by introducing six voice languages, English, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Spanish, and 50 messaging languages into the Skype for Windows desktop app.

“It has been a long-time dream at Skype to break down language barriers and bring everyone across the globe closer together. Researchers, engineers, and many others across Microsoft have been working hard to make this dream a reality and we are looking forward to bringing this preview technology to more devices.”

Now, you have even more reasons to chat with people around the world – bringing together family, friends, and students. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities to do even more together across not only distances, but also languages.

“Built on world-class machine learning technology that gets smarter with usage, Skype Translator preview gets better the more it’s used.  Already, early users of the preview have helped it improve tremendously, and now with this broader release we are excited to see the additional progress we can make from expanded use.”

The update is being introduced to the Skype for Windows desktop app over the next few weeks. When you see new Skype Translator icons within your updated app, Skype Translator is ready to use.
