Microsoft Translator Can Now Work with No Less than 100 Languages
#1      Microsoft Translator Can Now Work with No Less than 100 Languages
Massive update now available for the Translator app
Oct 12, 2021 16:57 GMT  ·  By Bogdan Popa        Microsoft has announced a new update for the Microsoft Translator app, as the company has added no less than 12 new languages and dialects, bringing the total count to over 100.

The new update includes Bashkir, Dhivehi, Georgian, Kyrgyz, Macedonian, Mongolian (Cyrillic), Mongolian (Traditional), Tatar, Tibetan, Turkmen, Uyghur and Uzbek (Latin), with Microsoft explaining that according to its own estimates, there are over 84.6 million people using these languages and dialects.

The Redmond-based software giant used this opportunity to explain how it managed to reach this important milestone, emphasizing that Azure Cognitive Services are playing an important role into making its pre-trained AI models as efficient as possible.

“In addition to language, Azure Cognitive Services include AI models for speech, vision and decision-making tasks. These models enable organizations to leverage capabilities, such as a Computer Vision technology known as Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This service extracts text entered on a form in any of the more than 100 languages covered by Translator and uses the text to populate a database,” the company explains in a blog post.

The perfect tool for both consumers and businesses
At the same time, Microsoft also revealed how some companies using the translation service to improve the way it communicates with customers across the world, no matter where they live.

“The Volkswagen Group, for example, is using the machine translation technology to serve its customers in more than 60 languages. The workload involves translating more than 1 billion words each year. The company started with standard Translator models and is using the custom feature in Translator to fine tune these models with industry specific terms,” it says.

The good news is anyone can try out the translation service on their devices, as Microsoft Translator can be downloaded on most devices out there, no matter where you live.
