Neural networks power speech translations

Microsoft Translator announced on November 15 that it is now powering all speech translation through neural networks. This means that apps such as Skype Translator and the Microsoft Translator app for mobile devices now use this technology, which is also available to anyone who wants to use the Translator speech API for apps or services.

Microsoft Translator supports speech for the following languages, all of which now use the neural networks: Arabic, Chinese Mandarin, English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. In addition, Japanese text translations use the neural networks.
