RELEASE: Skype Translator Preview now with Italian & Chinese


We made a huge announcement today around the availability of Italian & Chinese just-in-time spoken language translation.

At Skype, we want to make it easier for you to connect with people around the world, no matter where you are and what language you speak. In December, we announced the first phase of the Skype Translator preview program and today we’re excited to announce Skype Translator’s next milestone, the addition of two spoken languages: Italian and Chinese (Mandarin), to the current offering of Spanish and English.

As you can imagine, Mandarin is a very challenging language to learn, even for Skype Translator. With approximately 10,000 characters and multiple tones, this is one of the most difficult languages for a native English speaker to master, along with Arabic, Japanese, and Korean.
