Microsoft Translator now supports Japanese for speech translation

Translator

Microsoft Translator has announced the addition of yet another language added to it growing list of speech translation feature, Japanese. With this addition, a total of 10 speech translation languages are currently available across all Microsoft Translator supported technologies and products.

Other 9 supported languages are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Microsoft Translator is the first end-to-end speech translation solution optimized for real-life conversations (vs. simple human to machine commands) available on the market. It is one of the services in Microsoft’s portfolio of artificial intelligence technologies designed to make AI accessible to all.

The technologies employed in the end-to-end speech translation are quite complex. Two neural-network based Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are used: Automatic Speech Recognition and Machine Translation. Not also you get to see the translated text, but with a special natural language processing technology (TrueText), you are also able to hear it out loud.

The following gif shows how these two technologies are then connected to perform the speech translation function:
