Overcoming language barriers with Microsoft Azure Translator

Overcoming language barriers with Microsoft Azure Translator

Microsoft’s Azure Translator added 12 additional languages and now supports more than 100 languages and dialects. The newest update adds several languages from CEE region, including Bashkir, Dhivehi, Georgian, Kyrgyz, Macedonian, Mongolian (Cyrillic), Mongolian (Traditional), Tatar, Tibetan, Turkmen, Uyghur, and Uzbek (Latin).

Communication holds the key to every human relationship. Starting from cave paintings, smoke signals, even with carrier pigeons, people always found their way to communicate. Nowadays, with the help of technology, communication is more convenient and efficient, straightforward, and fast. However, due to so many languages in our world, we are still finding difficulties in communicating. According to Internet World Stats, only 26% of the total online audience are native English speakers, even though English is the dominant language of the web.

With the internet enabling global information exchange, the world has become a much smaller place. Loads of information are stored and transmitted between cultures and countries, giving us all the ability to grow and learn from each other. This is where Microsoft Azure Translator comes into place. Powered by advanced deep learning, it delivers fast and high-quality neural machine-based language translations which allow to break through language barriers and take advantage of the global information exchange.
