  Watch out, Google. Microsoft now has its own translator app available for a variety of devices.

 

  谷歌,长点心吧。微软公司已经为多种设备研发出了翻译应用。

 

  Microsoft Translator is a new app designed by the software giant for iOS and Android users. The app supports phones and tablets as well as the Apple Watch and smartwatches that run Android Wear.

 

  微软翻译是微软公司为IOS以及安卓用户开发的新应用。该应用可用于手机、平板电脑,苹果手表以及装有安卓穿戴系统的智能手表。

 

  You can type or speak the word or phrase you want translated. In response, the app shows you the translated text on the screen and then speaks it for you. Microsoft Translator supports 50 different languages, including English, Chinese, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Russian.This is the first expansion of Microsoft’s translation app to the world of iOS and Android mobile devices and smartwatches.

 

  你可以将需要翻译的东西通过键盘输入或语音输入。应用显示屏上会显示翻译好的内容,并将其读出。微软翻译支持50种不同的语言,其中包括英语、汉语、法语、希伯来语、意大利语、日语、西班牙语以及俄语。微软应用的适用范围首次扩展到iOS以及安卓设备和智能手表。

 

  With the new app, Microsoft is entering into Google territory -- the search giant has long offered translation services on the Web as well as for iOS and Android. Google’s Translate app is more advanced in one respect. It lets you point your mobile device’s camera at a sign, book or other object with text on it and watch as that text is automatically translated into the language of your choice. But Google’s Translate app supports only 27 languages. Google does not make a version of its app for Android Wear smartwatches, offering an advantage to Microsoft.

 

  微软研发该项新的应用之后,其研究领域与谷歌就有了交集。搜索巨头谷歌公司一直在网页、iSO和安卓系统提供翻译服务。谷歌的翻译应用一方面上更为先进。它可以通过手机相机识别某一标识、书籍或者其他物体上的文本,并自动将其翻译成选择的语言。但谷歌翻译只支持27中语言。谷歌并未为装有安卓穿戴系统的智能手表开发特定版本的应用,将这点优势拱手让与微软公司。

 

  Microsoft Translator provides several benefits to Apple Watch wearers. You can speak directly into your watch to get an instant translation. The app can correctly pronounce the phrase for you through your watch. And all your translations are synchronized between your watch and your phone.

 

  微软翻译为佩戴苹果手表的人提供几大福利。你可以将需要翻译的东西以语音形式输入手表,即可得到翻译结果。该应用可以通过手表以正确的读音输出。手表上的翻译还可同步至手机。

 

  Microsoft Translator for the Apple Watch and Android Wear watches is a brand new companion app, a spokesman for Microsoft said. The app does use the same Microsoft Translator cloud service that powers the Windows apps, Skype Translator and Bing translator site.

 

  微软发言人表示,为苹果手表以及装有安卓穿戴系统的智能手表所开发的微软翻译是个全新的同类应用。该应用也采用了支持Windows各项应用、Skype翻译以及必应翻译的微软翻译云。

 

  How is the app scoring among users? Quite well. At Apple’s App store, only 13 people have reviewed it so far, but collectively they’ve given it a score of 4.5 stars out of 5.

 

  那么用户对该应用的评价如何呢?相当不错,到目前为止,只有13人在苹果应用商店对其进行了评价,总的来说该应用获得了4.5星(满分为5星)。

 

  In my brief use of Microsoft Translate, I found the app quick and simple to use. You can easily switch between typing or speaking the words you want translated. You can speak or type your phrase and see or hear the translation in one language. The app did not offer spoken translations in certain languages, such as Hebrew, Thai and Vietnamese.

 

  我刚开始使用微软翻译,发现该应用操作简单快速。可以迅速切换输入模式,输入需要翻译的内容。可以将短语以文字或语音的格式输入,得到相应的翻译。该应用不提供一些语言的语音翻译,比如希伯来语、泰国语以及越南语。

 

  The Microsoft Translator service supports "text to text" translation for over 50 languages, the Microsoft spokesman said. The service provides text to speech capability for a subset of those languages. Microsoft continues to work on adding more languages that do support spoken translation, the spokesman added.

 

  微软发言人表示,微软翻译支持50种语言之间的文本翻译。该应用提供为其中一部分语言提供语音翻译服务。发言人表示,微软公司将继续努力,以便为更多语言提供语音翻译服务。
