Microsoft Translator Beta for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile launched

A few days after a listing for the Microsoft Translator beta app for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile was discovered in the Windows Store, the app itself is now available for download.

As with the older Translator app that was released for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1, the beta for Windows 10 will allow users to translate text directly from 50 languages, along with text that is captured by a photo. It can also handle voice translation as well.

  • Text translation - Enter text to translate into one of 50 languages and scripts.
  • Camera translation - Point your camera at signs, menus, newspapers — any printed text in 19 languages and scripts — then tap to see the translation.
  • Voice translation - Translate by speaking one of 10 languages into your phone.
  • Offline translation - Download a translation pack so you can translate even when you're offline — handy when you're traveling and you want to avoid expensive data roaming charges.
  • Text-to-speech - Hear translations from a native speaker.
  • History, search & favorites - Your translations are saved, so you can search through your history to find them later. Mark translations as favorites to find them even more quickly.
  • Word of the Day - Learn a new word or phrase everyday by pinning Translator to Start.

Since this is a beta app, there might be some bugs and issues that crop up so be aware of that before you download and install this on your Windows 10 PC or Windows 10 Mobile smartphone.
