Today Microsoft has released it’s long awaited Skype software that will assist people in translating voice calls in different languages in real-time. With Skype Translator, it will for example be possible for English and Spanish speakers to communicate in their native language. This has come as a result of several years of work from Microsoft’s research team.
You will be able to use Skype Translator on Windows 8.1 or preview copies of Windows 10, and it works by translating voice input from an English or Spanish speaker into text and translated audio. An English speaker will automatically hear a translation from a Spanish speaker, and vice versa. Currently, Microsoft is marketing Skype Translator as a tool for schools, and the company tested it out with students in the US and Mexico.
