Skype Translator has launched with a lot of users enjoying it daily, and it included six core languages when it launched to the public. On Thursday, Skype announced the seventh language, Brazilian Portuguese which is available to try out today.
The language of Brazilian Portuguese is one of the world’s most widely spoken languages, and adding it makes Brazil instantly available for millions of people. With the Olympics coming there soon, it also is a timely move for Skype.
Adding Brazilian Portuguese
With Skype adding Brazilian Portuguese to the list of available languages, it gives Skype Translator seven languages in which to conduct personal calls, business calls, or more. It’s been only a year since the launch, and this addition is huge.
The addition of Brazilian Portuguese also means that it will be added to the 50 IM languages in which Skype Translator currently works with today. The public preview went well, and now the public version expands with an addition of Brazil.
How To Use It
The best thing is that the current version of the desktop app currently has already been updated to allow for Brazilian Portuguese translations. Microsoft’s team of engineers along with Skype’s, have been working hard to add this difficult language to the product.
Users can start using it today, and can download the Skype Translator product directly from Skype. Users can speak to family members, friends, or business colleagues without a language barrier. It’s worth trying if you do business in Brazil, or just have a friend to speak with there now.
Skype Translator now has seven languages. With Chinese Mandarin, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and now Brazilian Portuguese, it only means it will get bigger and better.
