Microsoft is giving Android device owners a way to translate text messages in several languages, even if their smartphone cannot connect to the Internet. The latest update to the Microsoft Translator app adds a new engine that includes this new offline translation feature, with the help of downloadable language packs.
The offline translation language packs include Chinese Simplified, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese. More language packs will be released for Microsoft Translator in the coming months. The app can still perform text translations in 50 different languages while online, along with speech translations for several languages.
