Microsoft teaming up with Huawei helped in achieving the company’s new customized neural machine technology for Huawei’s new NPU (Neural Processing Unit) hardware which will result in faster and better offline translations compared to the existing translation methods. Microsoft’s new translator app comes pre-installed in Huawei’s Mate 10 series phones allowing users to natively translate the content even when they are not connected to the internet.

The Mate 10-series is the first to carry a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for AI computing tasks. With the combination of Microsoft’s NMT and Huawei’s NPU the results of translation are now faster, and the quality of it has been boosted.
