Years of work from Microsoft's research team and Skype has created a remarkable platform that is breaking the language barrier. Skype Translator gives you the ability to speak another language without learning one. Simply set up a Skype video or voice call with someone who speaks another language and start talking. Translator is currently available in English and Spanish and they have said more languages are coming soon.
Industries that are using Skype Translator to expand their business:
Airports and Airlines: Before traveling, if a passenger had any questions or concerns about their upcoming trip, rather than searching online, they can have a Skype call with an airline or airport agent, regardless of which language they speak.
Education: Microsoft is marketing Skype Translator as a tool for schools, and the company tested it out with students in the United States and Mexico. Skype is already popular in the classroom, with teachers participating in videoconferences to connect their schools to classrooms across the globe. While tests and demonstrations have been in limited and controlled experiments, Microsoft’s move today opens up its Skype Translator to a much wider audience to test it in the real world.
Retail: Online shopping is pretty much available all over the world, Skype translator presents more customer service opportunities so customers could shop risk free.
Real Estate: Skype translator provides a more tailored search experience and puts thousands of international real estate listings and properties within your reach.
International business: Simplifying the travel experience for passengers of various nationalities is a task that has previously been tackled by offering multi-lingual signage and text translation apps, but the Skype Translator may provide an ideal tool to help airlines and airports take their multi-lingual customer service to the next level.
