If you're still using the Microsoft Translator app on an older Windows machine or device, you'll want to upgrade or find an alternative soon. Microsoft has announced (via OnMSFT) that Translator will soon stop working on Windows 8, Windows Phone 7.1 and Windows Phone 8.
According to Microsoft, the Translator app will be removed from the Store for the affected platforms on March 22. If you already have the app installed, however, you'll be able to continue using it through April 30, at which point it will stop working.
While that's bad news for anyone still holding on to an older device, the good news is that Translator will continue to be supported for anyone on Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1. Microsoft says an update will roll out to the app on those platforms soon. And of course, anyone on Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile remains unaffected.
