The Redmond tech giant and historic company Microsoft is currently struggling to finish the work on the long awaited Windows 10 in a great way. The upcoming operating system by Microsoft is seen by the company and also by most of the tech experts in connection to this matter as a star that could get the Redmond based tech company back on the right track, as Microsoft has lost a considerable amount of its popularity and relevance to the market. The devs at Microsoft have worked in order to improve the Office pallet of apps and another ambitious project at Redmond is creating a top performance personal assistant for the Windows 10 user. Still, one of the most awaited changes in Windows 10 is the introduction of Spartan, a web browser which is considered to replace the old, grumpy Internet Explorer. However, along with these changes in the way the new Windows will look like, a recent announcement informs that Skype Translator has been made available for consumers` use. And, moreover, recent info announces Skype Translator Preview for consumers to come out by the end of this summer.
By now, Skype Translator Preview features support for 4 languages, English, Spanish, Mandarin and Italian. There are also 50 written IMs languages supported by the upcoming app. Officials talking on behalf of the Redmond tech giant have said in a statement that the Skype Translator will continue to expand its capabilities toward a larger number of supported languages.
The service could prove to be of great importance and, if it reaches a level of high quality, a great innovation by Microsoft. Skype Translator basically turns the words you speak in a language during a Skype video call to another language, eventually spoken by your interlocutor. There are 2 options available. You can hear the translation in real time or just read the transcript.
News about Skype Translator have started to appear in May 2014 for the first time. In December, Microsoft announced that it made Skype Translator available for the registered Windows 8.1 personal computers.
Most of the tech analysts who have shown interest to this matter say that Skype Translator Preview app will probably be launched complementary to the July 29 release of Windows 10.
In preparation to the upcoming launch, Microsoft has already started to show the Skype Translator Preview project for Windows 10 to some of the Redmond company`s partners. So it will probably feature PCs, tablets, and also smartphones.
