Microsoft Translator brings natural translation to wearables

At Microsoft, we focus on bringing new product innovations to our customers in all forms. Today, the Microsoft Translator team has leveraged the same engine behind Skype Translator and Office programs to bring a powerful translation feature to conversations on Android and iOS wearables. Now you can translate conversations between English, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish on your wearables.

The Microsoft Translator pairs an Android or iOS device with an Android Wear or Apple Watch respectively. Individuals then speak into their wearable device and receive a translation on their phone, which then can be handed to another person, who can continue the dialogue—creating natural, translated conversation. Don’t have a wearable device with you? No worries; you can still enjoy the experience using just a phone, but the experience truly shines with a paired combo of a phone and wearable device.

Check out this short animation to see a demo of the product:
