Skype Translator preview coming to Skype for Windows desktop this summer


Microsoft is now bringing Skype Translator preview technology to Skype for Windows desktop app. The company last month had removed sign-up requirement for the app, and now it is targeting the end of summer 2015 for the roll-out to begin.

The Skype Translator preview app uses machine learning technology for real time speech translation that currently supports translation for four spoken languages – English, Italian, Mandarin, Spanish, and 50 instant messaging (IM) languages in real-time.

Last month, when Microsoft removed sign-up requirement for the app, it saw a 300 percent increase in usage, said company on its blog.
