Nothing will be "lost in translation" anymore!

Thanks to Bing Translator almost nothing will be “lost in translation” anymore. The CMIC team presents an added functionality to the new release of Bing Translator. This feature translate words that are not translated by meaning, also known as out of vocabulary words (OOVs), such as names of; people, locations or organizations, to be transliterated i.e. translated phonetically.

Arul Menezes*, Principal Architect at Microsoft Research, Redmond stated that, “Microsoft Translator sees a substantial amount of Arabic traffic so this is a big win for our customers”.

“This is an incredible improvement! I can actually say that it is infinitely better! It’s exceedingly rare that we have a change that produces no regressions. Good job, guys!” Will Lewis*, Senior Program Manager.
