Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


windows live translator


The fight between Google and Microsoft has become increasingly strong and tough. In the last few years, Google managed to build a real empire of technology, which thanks to their work, is maintained at high levels but Microsoft can't accept that. After creating a free online storage space, Microsoft now aims to take some of Google's fame with a new online translator. Microsoft also plans to offer a widget for websites that will be able to translate web pages.

But like many other services which Microsoft only offers because of it's competitors, Windows Live Translator isn't nowhere near as good as Google Translate and also it only has about 12 languages as compared to ~41 for Google Translate.

One new thing about this though: Microsoft added a translation bot for Windows Live Messenger.
