Skype Translator
« on: January 16, 2016, 02:33:26 AM »
Skype Translator provides real-time voice-to-voice translation in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Chinese Mandarin.

The roll-out comes a year after Skype Translator was initially released in preview form after being developed in partnership with Microsoft Translator.

At the moment Skype Translator is only available for Windows computers, but the Microsoft-owned company says it’s working on bringing the translation feature to new platforms and apps, along with more languages.

Google also has an app for skype. I wonder over time which one will be better for Mandarin to English translations.

But Google is no good for China as it is blocked here.

True I had issues with skype too. There were times that suddenly the file transfer for skype would stop working when my wife was login from China.
