Suppose you want to discuss with your Japanese colleague who is at Japanese branch of the company, but the problem is he doesn’t know much of English and you don’t know Japanese either. Also think of another scenario where you had gone to some other country and you want to enquire something but you don’t know the language. So how to overcome such situations?
Not to worry, here comes the friendly Windows Live Messenger Translation Bot. It’s called TBot. This Messenger bot does translations for you. Just add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts and start chatting. You can have one-on-one conversations with the bot, or you can invite a friend and chat in different languages with the bot translating for you.
The translator bot supports the following translations :
- English to/from:
Russian (RUS->ENU only)
- Chinese Simplified <-> Chinese Traditional
Just add email@example.com to contacts and start conversation with TBot by saying Hi,
and start one-on-one conversations with the bot.
You can invite a friend also who’s online to chat with him with the bot translating for you.
You can also access Windows Live Messenger on your smartphone to use the bot to translate simple sentences while you’re traveling to other countries! More languages will be rolled out over the next several months. Just type “TBot ?” (without quotes) to get a list of commands that the bot understands. So start chatting breaking all the language barriers. Thanks to TBot!
EDIT: As one of my friend said his smartphone doesn’t have WLM installed, I am adding this. Normally almost all smartphones today supports Windows Live Messenger and if your smartphone doesn’t have WLM already installed then you can get it from here: Windows Live Messenger for mobile
