The personal digital assistant Cortana can translate phrases for you in Windows 10. As Microsoft Translator was firstly incorporated into Skype, now it has been implemented in the operating system Windows 10, allowing Cortana to translate phrases and sentences into approximately 40 languages. The Skype feature allowed for 6 language translations, including French and Mandarin and it was available also while having real-time conversations.
Windows 10 reached fourth place as one of the best desktop operating systems, according to recent statistics released Tuesday. So, the developers of Windows 10 boosted the chances of it becoming popular among the general public by reviving the Start menu, by making various significantly improved changes to its layout, by implementing an enhanced design, whereas one of the best features was the introduction of the Cortana voice assistant.
Those who chose to install Windows 10 on their devices will now benefit from real-time translation. All you have to do is pronounce either “Hey Cortana, how do you say” or “Hey Cortana, translate” plus the word, phrase or sentence you want the personal assistant to translate. This means that Cortana functions according to voice activation.
Moreover, the Windows 10 developers thought it would be a good idea to implement the feature of typing whichever text into the taskbar, as Cortana will be capable of finding the translation into your preferred language. Therefore, you can type sentences for quick translation as well.
Prior to this new feature, Cortana was still able to help you translate, however, now more languages have been added to the system, including Japanese, Korean, Swedish, Latvian and Bulgarian.
There’s the issue when Cortana isn’t familiar to specific words or phrases, but the personal assistant will launch, in this case, a web search. Thus, you will still be able to find whichever definition.
The Windows 10 staff said that the option was currently available exclusively for US and Chinese versions of the operating system, but they promised they would add Cortana’s multilingual skills to more Windows 10 editions, so stay tuned.
Microsoft hopes it will attract more and more users via Windows 10, as the operating system works on various devices, including PCs, tablets or mobile phones.
