Microsoft announced that its Microsoft Translator app now supports Tamil Text Translation. This support has also been introduced in the Office 365 apps such as PowerPoint, Word and Excel.
With this new feature, the users will be able to translate to and from Tamil using the Bing Translator website, PowerPoint add-ins, Microsoft Translator apps and API on Azure in more than 10 speech translation languages and 60 translation languages.
You can be glad if your mother tongue is Tamil because the Microsoft Translator can now listen to users speaking in any other language and translate it to Tamil text for the user.
The blog post said:
One of the longest-surviving classical languages in the world, Tamil is spoken by over 70 million native speakers within the Indian subcontinent and across the globe. Tamil is an official language in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Sri Lanka, and Singapore, and is also prevalent in Malaysia. We are excited to announce that Microsoft Translator now supports Tamil Translation along with over 60 languages worldwide.
The latest addition will help the Tamil users to order food at restaurants, obtain directions and use the built-in Phrasebook feature. The interesting part is that the users can also take the photos of any brochures, signs and restaurant menus and view their corresponding translations in Tamil.
The company also said in the blog post:
With Presentation Translator for PowerPoint you can display subtitles automatically translated in Tamil live during your PowerPoint presentation. You can also translate to and from Tamil to over 60 other languages in Outlook with the Translator for Outlook add-in; on web pages with Translator for Microsoft Edge; and even entire documents on Microsoft Word.
In addition to Tamil, the Microsoft Translator supports Hindi and Bengali.
