microsoft cortanaLast year in September, Microsoft announced a new feature of Cortana for Windows 10 in which the voice assistant will be able to provide translations for users on the fly. Now in case the language you wanted was not supported by Cortana back then, Microsoft has announced that they have added support for four new languages.


These languages include French, German, Italian, and Spanish. According to Microsoft, “Currently, for instance, you can say in English, ‘Hey Cortana, translate where is the nearest taxi stand in Polish’ (or any supported languages) and receive the translated phrase from Microsoft Translator right within Cortana. Now, this is also possible in these localized versions of Windows 10.”

This feature shouldn’t really come as a surprise especially when you consider that Microsoft managed to bake a translator into Skype in which it would provide translations for users on the fly. Alternatively if users can’t speak into Cortana or if the voice assistant can’t pick up their voices too well, they can always type what they need into the toolbar.

With the addition of these four new languages, the number of languages supported by Cortana has since increased to around 50. The feature should already be live so if you are using Windows 10, just fire up Cortana to take it for a spin.
