Skype Looks To Break Language Barrier With Inbuilt Video Call Translator


Skype is really helping to breaking the language barrier.

If you are  a kind of person who normally has a lot of overseas communication to handle, or simply likes the idea of international networking, then it's quite possible that you have tried Skype's futuristic real time translator feature at least once. It was released back in 2014 and has kept improving.

You can now use the Translator in  regular voice call as well. That also includes both landline and mobile calls, meaning the other party no longer has to be a Skype user. However, you have to have Skype credit to place said call and make use of the feature. Since it is currently in beta stage, you also have to be signed in with a Windows Insider account and download the Skype Preview app.



Skype Translator currently supports nine spoken languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese (Mandarin), Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Arabic, and Russian. To enable it, you just have to open the dialer, call the other party and look for a toggle, marked "Translate". You do have to select the languages yourself, but other than that, the automatic machine learning translation system is pretty impressive.
