Microsoft Translator update for Windows Phone adds voice support for several languages

The Microsoft Translator app for Windows Phone devices received a rather big update today. The new 3.2 version adds voice support for several languages, along with different versions of English, French and Spanish.

The app can now handle voice translations for the Mexican version of Spanish and the Canadian version of French, along with English as spoken in Canada, Australia and India. Finally, the app supports voice translation for Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Russian languages. The app recently got a name change from its previous Bing Translator branding.

  • Until now no offline urdu language is available. Why Bing ?

  • If there's Arabic, there has to be Urdu too.
  • Unfortunately there is much more difference in between Urdu and Arabic than just the script
  • Also Arabic have just recently released so it will take some time for them to release more offline packs
  • And still no support for offline translating for my language (slovak) whereas Google had it million years ago. This app totally sucks wake up Microsoft!!!
  • Is Marathi language available? Because last time when I download this app that time it wasn't there in this app so I uninstall it.
