Microsoft has announced that their new Skype Translator preview release will be arriving on the Skype for Windows desktop app beginning at the end of summer months of 2015.
Last month Microsoft made the Skype Translator preview available for all and removed the sign-up requirement, increasing sign-ups by 300 percent.
Currently the new real-time Skype translations software supports English, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin. Microsoft explains more :
“We are thrilled with the positive response from around the world, and especially thankful to ALL of the early adopters who downloaded the application, and use it every day! Remember: Skype Translator uses machine learning, so the more people use the technology, the better the experience for everyone!
As of today, the Skype Translator preview application includes four spoken languages: English, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin, as well as 50 written instant messaging languages. We will continue to expand the repertoire of languages as they meet our quality standard.”
