Skype Translator | How Does the Translator Work
This new project is something that the developers of Skype have been working on, resulting in this incredible system that will make talking to people from all over the world a unique experience.
How we can make use of Skype Translator in our daily life
Through Skype Translator it is possible to speak with people from all over the world through automatic translation, what do we mean?
If you speak Spanish and want to speak to a person from England, but neither of you speak the same language, Skype will take care of translating the conversation instantly, each receiving the audio in their language.
In addition to translating conversations, in Skype Translator you can write in your language and it will translate it to the other person. Although there are many translators on the web for this, having Skype do it automatically is just great.
Where and how to get Skype Translator?
Since the system is in Beta status, to use it it is necessary to enter the following link: www.skype.com/translator-preview and fill out a form.
Then it remains to wait for Skype support to contact you and tell you what to do so that you can use Skype Translator.
Before using it, the user must be registered in the Windows Insider Program and must install the most current version of Skype Preview.
This will undoubtedly change the way you communicate with people around the world, thus avoiding inconvenience when speaking with other people who speak a different language. We can also make video calls, which will further improve communication.
How many languages are currently available in Skype Translator?
Currently, there are a total of ten languages:
- Chinese (Mandarin)
- Portuguese (Brazilian)
Step by step to configure and start using the Skype translator
Next, we will see how to configure Skype Translator so that we can start using it
- First you have to log in to Skype and select a contact
- A translator icon will appear in the shape of the world globe. You just have to press it to activate the translator
- Next to the name of the contact, a drop-down menu will appear in which we can select the translation language
- Once the call is established, it is very important to speak loud and clear so that the system detects the phrases and can make a good translation, which will appear on the screen and will also be heard through the headphones.
It is very interesting to use Skype Control on a regular basis, as it uses machine learning, which means that the longer it is used, the more phrases it will learn.
In addition, you will be able to communicate in a total of ten languages during voice calls and in more than 50 with instant messages, which greatly facilitates communication with any user.
