The Skype Translator Preview app is simply amazing and one of the strongest breakthroughs in modern technology, when it comes to a global understanding of people. On Thursday, Microsoft announced that the preview app has increased its number of languages by 2 to a total of 6.
Previously, the Skype Translator Preview App only knew 4 languages, and was successful at that. With the announcement of French and German on Thursday, the world can understand each other a lot easier, and opens the floodgates to new business and education.
Learning French and German
The newest version of the Skype Translator Preview App now includes the ability to translate German and French, and is available from the Windows Store. Now, it joins English, Italian, Mandarin, and Spanish. It also joins 50 other instant messaging languages available today.
The app has been tested in great detail by a number of employees within Skype and Microsoft, and came as the result of a Microsoft research team member who was deaf. He wanted to speak with his wife, and the program grew from there. It’s not available to download starting today.
How To Get It
The Skype Translator Preview App is now available to all users, and Microsoft removed the earlier barriers to entry to try it out. They are using the increased number of users and feedback to make the product better. All of this will make Skype Translator better as it grows.
The Skype Translator App uses machine learning to help it translate, and the more people use the software, the better the translating gets. The community forum has been setup to take requests, feedback, bug reports, and other comments. With French and German added, it’s sure to get busy.
The updated Skype Translator Preview App is available now. Try it out and enjoy it.
