Description

Doug Thomas from Office Casual and the Office.com team gives us a quick snapshot of Microsoft Translator.  A service which allows users to translate texts or entire web pages into different languages. 

When translating an entire web page, or when the user selects "Translate this page" in Bing search results, the Bilingual Viewer will be shown which allows users to browse the original web page text and translation in parallel, supported by synchronized highlights, scrolling, and navigation.

Four Bilingual Viewer layouts are available:

  • Side by side
  • Top and bottom
  • Original with hover translation
  • Translation with hover original

Add-in for website owners to add a drop-down menu to their website for translating it into another language supported by Bing Translator

Any-to-Any language translation pairs

Automatically detect the language of the text or website being translated

Ability to easily reverse the translation direction

Integration with Internet Explorer 8 Bing Translator Accelerator

    Hehe, funny video Smiley

    Unfortunately the translation quality isn’t that good Sad I’ve been using the widget since May on my website (http://tomaszwisniewski.com/">http://tomaszwisniewski.com) and when I translate from Polish -> English… well… let’s say that if I didn’t know what I wrote in Polish I would thought that the author is drunks or something Wink

    But other than that it’s a cool technology which will hopefully evolve and get much better.
