Microsoft Translator is a popular app that helps you translate text or speech and even download languages for offline use. Recently, Microsoft ended support for Translator on older Windows versions such as Windows 8, Windows Phone 7.1, and Windows Phone 8. This means you will no longer be able to download the app if you are using any of those operating systems. The app will cease to function by April 30th.

As a quick recap, the app features the following:

  • Speak or type to translate into over 60 languages
  • Have real-time translated conversations with two or more people by connecting your devices (not available for Windows Phone)
  • Translate images
  • Download languages to translate offline
  • Hear your translated phrase for you to help you pronounce your translation
  • Share your translation with other apps
  • Pin your most frequent translations to save for later
  • Learn a new word or phrase everyday by pinning Translator to Start

Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile users can expect to continue using the app for the foreseeable future.

Are you one of those affected by Microsoft Translator app’s departure from those platforms? Let us know in the comments.
