SwiftKey for Android will soon gain the ability to translate typed text live before sending it as a completely different language.
This feature will be made possible by new integration with Microsoft Translator and it’s currently being tested in the beta version of the SwiftKey for Android app. Here’s the official release notes for the new beta update:
We’ve now integrated Microsoft Translator into SwiftKey. This gives you a fast and seamless way to use translations features in the context of what you’re already doing. No more switching apps or copying and pasting back and forth.
- Access Microsoft Translator from the toolbar
- Type in one new language: Dungan
- Added Tamil99 native top row symbols layouts
- Added Indic native top row symbols layouts
Like most beta features, Microsoft Translator support will likely come to the main SwiftKey for Android app in the following months after it’s been properly tested for reliability and stability within the beta app.
