Yammer Localization Updates Powered by Microsoft Translator

There are some exciting new changes happening in the world of Social Enterprise. Earlier today Yammer announced key localization updates across its web client, mobile apps, and the Yammer Success Center, that will improve communication within your organization.

Yammer is taking localization a step further following last year’s announcement of localization support and is introducing message translation in both the iOS and Android Yammer apps, powered by Microsoft Translator®. Whenever a Yammer conversation in these apps includes a language different from the user’s default language setting, a translate button will appear below the initial post. Clicking translate will instantly convert the entire conversation, including related responses, into the user’s default language. Clicking “show original text” will revert the conversation back to the initial language(s).

  

Check out the full announcement with all of the new features posted here and try these localizations improvements out for yourself!
