Skype’s mission is to bring people together from all over the world, and with Skype Translator we are breaking down language barriers that have historically made it challenging for friends and families to connect.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re making it easier to obtain the Skype Translator preview by removing the sign-up requirement. Simply download the Skype Translator preview application from the Windows Store for your Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 preview PC or tablet – no waiting or sign-up needed – use it as soon as you download it!
Skype Translator currently has four available spoken languages – English, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin, and 50 instant messaging (IM) languages. With IM, customers can write a text message in their language, and the recipient will receive it in their language of choice. Really useful, try it today!
Since releasing the Skype Translator preview in December 2014, we have received excellent feedback from all the early adopters. One of the early adopters we would like to highlight is Pro Mujer. Pro Mujer is a non-profit development organization based in New York City dedicated to providing women in Latin America with vital financial, health, and human development services that are typically out of reach, but essential in helping women become financially independent, healthy, and leaders in their communities.
We are very proud of Pro Mujer’s mission, and we’re delighted they’re finding value in using Skype generally, and Skype Translator to make an impact in so many people’s lives.
Skype Translator is transforming communications one conversation at a time – it’s potential in breaking down barriers is only limited by our own imaginations! Our goal for Skype Translator is to translate as many languages as possible on relevant platforms, and to deliver the best speech translation experience to our more than 300 million connected Skype customers.
Please download the preview today, and be sure to provide your feedback, so we can continue to evolve the Skype Translator preview product, to help bring the world a little closer together.
