Skype Live Translation early preview signups are open

Skype logoSkype is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, and it can also be used to schedule interviews and conduct meetings. However sometimes these meetings might be with a guest from a different country where English might not be his/her native language. Well earlier this year it was revealed that Microsoft was working on a live translation feature for Skype, and the good news is that you can sign up to be part of its testing.

According to a recent post on the Skype blog, the team has announced that the Skype Translator Early Preview’s signups will be going live today. This means that if you’re curious as to how well Skype’s live translation feature will perform, all you’d have to do is head on over to Skype’s website and register yourself, although as Skype has noted, there will be limited spots available, so hurry up if you don’t want to miss out on it!

As it stands, the preview program will be limited to computers and tablets running Windows 8.1, so if you still have yet to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, or if you’re still using Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, then we guess you’d be out of luck for now. There will also be a limited amount of languages available in the preview, but we suppose that’s to be expected at the early stages. So, will you be signing up for the early preview program?
