Microsoft’s Skype Translator tool that translates audio speech into text automatically on your behalf, can now speak Arabic. Now, you can communicate people from across the globe. The language barrier or the communication gap is set to be fulfilled by the new tool at Skype. In other words, at some places, people can’t express their feelings due to lack of ability to speak the language other than their mother-tongue. In Arab countries, people can use the Arabic tool at Skype to communicate people in America, if they don’t have command over the English language.
How to use the Arabic tool at Skype?
“You can find the Arabic language setting in the Skype for Windows desktop application under the globe icon. There is a drop-down menu where you can turn on Skype Translator, and pick your messaging and spoken language preferences.” Skype said in a blog post on its website.
“Using Modern Standard Arabic, the formal Arabic taught in schools, the tool overcomes the language barriers due to the various dialects spoken across the MENA region,” Stepfeed said in a blog post. Due to the language barriers between diverse people living across the globe, they can’t communicate each other even if they share the same table in a restaurant, especially when visiting the country which has a diverse profile of residents. Although Skype is an online tool, you can’t talk directly through using the Skype. But, in the case, you have an urgency to communicate and both of you are using the Skype, then it’ll be an effective tool.
“Microsoft helps translate your Arabic conversations face-to-face or across the globe Today, Microsoft Translator adds Modern Standard Arabic to its list of conversation languages for speech-to-speech translation. Whether you are using Skype Translator to communicate across distances or the Microsoft Translator apps on Android or iOS to communicate face to face, we continue to help break the language barrier by allowing you to translate Arabic conversations into seven languages (Chinese Mandarin, English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish).” Skype said in a blog post on its website.
