Microsoft Translator gets a Windows 10 app

Kip Kniskern

Microsoft Translator has joined the Windows 10 family with the release of a new Universal Windows 10 app, and will work across all of your Windows 10 devices.  The app delivers text (for 50 languages), voice (18 languages), and picture translation by taking a picture of a sign or document and getting a translation, in 19 languages.
The app has been fully redesigned to take advantage of the power of Windows 10, according to a post on the Microsoft Translator team blog:

  • A truly responsive and refreshed user-experience that allows you to use it seamlessly across your Windows 10 PC experiences:
    • Full screen on your favorite Windows 10 tablet
    • Snapped to work alongside an app or website you need translation for on your tablet or laptop
    • In a resizable floating window as a companion desktop app for your everyday productivity uses
  • The power of the new Windows 10 platform: This app has been rewritten to be a true universal app. The same app with a consistent look and feel will work across all of your Windows 10 devices, from PC to Phone to other Windows 10 powered devices
  • Pinning your favorite translations for easy access and the ability to look them up by translation type: text, voice, and camera
  • Search history and favorite translations in the handy integrated search bar
  • Easy access to the last 3 languages you translated from and to
  • Selection of the language dialect for the text-to-speech features is available for Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish so you can always be sure you have the right accent while translating during your travels
  • New languages supported for camera translations: Romanian, Serbian Cyrillic, and Slovak
  • Support for the newly launched Kiswahili language, including an offline downloadable language pack for all the times you don’t have access to Internet

You can get the app for your Windows 10 Devices from the Windows Store:
