Allowing users to translate languages on the go is what most top brands are interested in.
The all-new Microsoft Translator app for Android will be customized to suit the interface and the functionalities of the Huawei Mate 10 smartphone. While LinkedIn support for EMUI 8.0 operating system has already been introduced for the device, the neural on-device translation should make it a friendlier model that business users would go for.
With the help of developers from Microsoft, Huawei plans to tap the full potential of the Neural Processing Unit that they have developed. The idea is to provide instant offline translations so that users can immediately understand what is being spoken with the help of their phone. It shouldn’t rely on internet connectivity because when traveling, most people may not have access to a 4G connection and that is when the offline capability of the phone becomes an essential feature.
Not all phones could boast of this feature because the Huawei Mate 10 is one of the very few devices which has a Neural Processing Unit NPU integrated into it. The unit powers the AI much better than a traditional system on chip and makes it more responsive when summoned with computing tasks like instant translation. The quality of the app has been significantly boosted by Microsoft with the help of NPU technology provided by Huawei.
Users are supposed to download the Neural Offline Pack which is mandatory to be able to easily access translations for a wide range of popular languages, without having to stay connected to the internet. Over 60+ text based translation is provided for popular languages including Spanish, German, French, Korean, Russian and many more. It even translates English into multiple other languages for those who don’t know it.
A live translator feature in the Microsoft app allows up to 100 people to converse in real time and get instant translations on their device. LinkedIn integration is another feature aimed towards business users. The profile will be connected to a person’s phone number so that whenever you view their information, it will pull the data from the LinkedIn website so as to provide a complete picture of each individual’s professional history.
When an unknown e-mail lands in the inbox of a Huawei Mate 10 user, they can instantly know everything about the person if they are on LinkedIn.
