Microsoft Translator comes to iOS and Android

I took Spanish in high school, but I wouldn’t exactly say I’m fluent. That means I’m pretty fond of translation technology—something Microsoft just delivered its own version of to iOS and Android.

Called Microsoft Translator, the app is pretty straightforward; type or speak your query, choose the language you want your query translated into, and that’s it. You can pin the results for later, giving you the opportunity to save up a list of common phrases to refer to later. Something like this would come in handy on vacation.

In addition to the main app for iOS and Android, Microsoft Translator is also available for Android Wear and the Apple Watch, making it super convenient to translate words and phrases on-the-go; even better, translations will be synced between your devices, so you won’t be without something to say.

Microsoft Translate supports over 50 languages, so you should be able to travel the world with no problems. And if you find yourself in a country that’s not yet supported, Microsoft promises more languages will be added periodically. Below is the list of supported languages.

Arabic, Bosnian (Latin), Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese(S), Chinese(T), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Haitian Creole, Hebrew, Hindi, Hmong Daw, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Maltese, Norwegian, Quer’etaro Otomi, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian (Cyrillic), Serbian (Latin), Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Vietnamese and Welsh, and Yucatec Maya.
