After offering Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 users a Skype Translator preview app to try out, Microsoft now thinks the features are ready for prime time. The company is rolling out the real-time speech and text translation features in that preview to the regular Skype for Windows app over the next few weeks.
When the features go live, Skype for Windows will be able to translate spoken words from six languages (English, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, and Spanish) along with 50 different text languages. Microsoft stated:
Microsoft has not indicated when or if the translator features will be added to its many other Skype platforms.
