Microsoft has announced that the Bing Translator App for Windows is now available.
"Designed specifically for Windows devices, the app places translation technology in your hand by instantly translating content in more than 40 languages," a spokesperson for Microsoft tells WebProNews. "Whether utilizing your PC’s camera to deliver video mode translation or typing in a quick phrase, the Bing Translator app is a great addition to your Windows devices."
"In addition to being simple to use, the app was built specifically to take advantage of Windows 8," he adds. "Use the Share charm to quickly translate highlighted text from other apps or just snap the Bing Translator app to the either side of the screen and translate quickly while doing other things."
The app also includes offline access in case you know you're not going to have Wi-Fi or other access. You can download the language pack you need so you can always access translation while offline.
And don't forget, Microsoft recently added Klingon language to Translator. So there's that.
