[Free app of the week] Microsoft Translator instantly translates your words into over 50 languages

Microsoft Translator is a new app that was launched on the Android platform today. It seems that Microsoft likes to branch out on all sorts of platforms in order to get more out of the niche market and increase its fan base. The app basically lets you communicate with the phone in order to get translations and it also presents support for Android gear!

Microsoft Translator helps users translate to and from over 50 languages, including popular and particularly difficult or unusual languages: Spanish, German, Urdu, Greek, Hungarian, or French are just a few examples. In order to start the app you have to tap on the microphone to speak or use the keyboard and it will instantly translate your words. In order for this magic to take its course you will need an Internet connection.

 

The app from Microsoft supports text-to-speech in some languages and it takes over your screen in a full screen mode to facilitate your reading or showing other people your translations.

 

Microsoft Translator‘ s Android Wear support function allows users to get translations on their wrists as well! You can find the app in the Google Play store where it is free.

Waygo – a translator app (almost) free on Google Store

Waygo is a new Android app that helps users translate different phrases from Chinese and Japanese to English at no cost. It is a play on the already popular Word Lens app and it lets users use up to 10 translations per day for the free version. They can play up to $7 for a lifetime license that allows continuous usage daily or $2 for a tourist license that works for 1 week.

Waygo stores the translations it makes locally so it doesn’t need an internet connection to use it. The app doesn’t recognize stylized characters or calligraphy which means those Asian character tattoos will not be translated by it. You’ll have to take that tattooist’s word for the translation. It will recognize different items on Chinese or Japanese menus though!

The app is already a hit on iOS and now Android users can finally see for themselves if it is worth the hype. You can try it free of charge in the Google Play Store.
