Microsoft announced that Yahoo! Babel Fish users have been transitioned to Bing Translator.
"We have been working closely with our friends at Yahoo! to make this an easy transition, and Bing Translator is a natural upgrade to the experience with Yahoo! Babel Fish," the team posted.
"We support all the languages you used with Babel Fish, and provide a superset of all the features. We serve billions of translations every day across 38 different languages, and we continually add to the list of languages and features," the team said.
Now, when you arrive at Bing Translator from a Yahoo site, a welcome banner will be there to greet you. Here are some features:
Text translator helps you translate text snippets between the supported languages on the home page. "If you aren't sure about the language of the source text, you can always leave it as "Auto-Detect" and we will detect it for you." You can also listen to the translation for a sub set of languages by clicking the speaker icon. You can search the web with translated text snippet, or email it.
Webpage translator lets you type in a webpage URL into the text entry box on the home page to translate a webpage. "You can use the bi-lingual viewer functionality and switch between various views, including the popular side-by-side view. As you navigate through the site, the webpage translator continues translating," explains the team.
