Microsoft Translator has been breaking down the language barrier with an ever growing list of languages and accomplishments across multiple platforms. Claiming to be the most comprehensive translation solution for the iOS ecosystem, Microsoft has just announced two new features for the Microsoft Translator app on iOS.
All iPhone, iPad, and iPod users will now have offline translation support and web page translation to add to the list of text, conversation, and image translation that is already available. Offline language packs can now be downloaded alongside the app to provide quality translations for those times when users can’t connect to data.
While Android had already had access to the downloadable language packs introduced in Feb 2016, this update makes it possible for the Deep Neural Network to integrate with the entire iOS ecosystem. Often called Deep Learning, it is also used by the online cloud service for the Microsoft Translator apps and the translator at Bing.com. The Deep Neutral Network also powers Skype Translator and the Speech translation API, making real-time custom translation is custom apps possible.
Not only did Microsoft Translator become easier to use offline, but an impressive amount of 34 new languages was added to the list of available languages supported offline for both Android and iOS.
Following up with the new offline translations, Microsoft Translator also rolled out a new extension for Safari that will let users translate web pages with just a click.
With these two updates to Microsoft Translator, users can feel even more confident that they are receiving quality translations at the tip of their fingers.Further reading: Android, Bing, Deep Learning, Deep Neural Network, iOS, Language, Microsoft, Microsoft Translator, Safari, Skype, Skype Translator, Speech Translation
