Just Imagine. Now, you can speak another language without learning it. Can you believe this? Yes. Skype made this Possible. Skype adds Real Time Translator to help Skype users to communicate with others through remote person’s language. Skype has announced about this feature in the 1st phase of Skype Real Time Translator Preview Program.
Skype Translator Program will kick-off the default spoken languages (English and Spanish). Now, more than 40 + instant messaging languages will be available to Skype users who have signed up via Skype Translator sign-up page. Users need to ensure that they are using Windows 8.1 on the desktop and tablets as well as Windows 10 Technical Preview users.
Skype Adds Real Time Translator – How it Works?
Skype Real-Time Translator is a great example of the benefit of Microsoft’s investment in research. They invested in speech recognition – automatic translation and – machine learning technologies for more than a decade. Skype also shared additional related information on how the service actually works. Skype explained the machine learning process Skype uses to understand the context words are being used in as well as their meaning.
Just have a conversation like normal, and Skype will translate what you say into the other person’s language in “near real-time.” Then, when the other person says something, it will be translated back to your language. Skype brings people together to make growth on what matters to them. Skype Translator will open up endless possibilities for people around the world to connect, communicate and collaborate. Now people will no longer be stalled by geography and language.
Microsoft has been working to deliver the real-time language translation for at least two years. The new service translates conversations both ways in near real-time. The service will display on-screen transcripts of calls, and will ultimately translate instant-message chats in more than 45 languages.
