To date, Skype Translator has been a standalone app. The first users to get Skype Translator as part of Skype will be those running Skype desktop on Windows 7, 8 or 10. The rollout will happen over the next few weeks, Microsoft officials said on October 1.
Once the translation capability is added, users will see new real-time translation icons for audio and video calls, as well as instant-message (IM) conversations. Languages supported for audio and video calls at launch will be English, French, German, Italian Mandarin and Spanish. Fifty languages will be supported for IM translation.
