Need to translate languages on the fly? One option is Microsoft’s Translator app, which can translate more than 60 languages via text or voice.

It can speak a translated phrase so you hear how it’s pronounced, translate signs and other images into a different language, and perform real-time translations between two or more people.

Microsoft offers a few options for translation, including the Microsoft Translator webpage and Bing Translator site, but the Microsoft Translator mobile app lets you translate text when you’re out and about.

The Microsoft Translator app is available for iOS, Android, and Windows 10; all three work similarly and offer the same basic functionality. The iOS and Android flavors even look the same, while the Windows 10 edition sports a different layout. For this article, I’ll be using the iOS version on an iPhone.
