Alternative for clownfish stopping in December

[ Edited ]

skype has announced that clownfish will not be supported on skype after december as a translator in messaging.

does anyone know of a usable alternative?

they told me to download CTSS - but it is useless, and does not even have an adequate help section to explain how it works...

any help is appreciated.

I have used a couple of 3rd party translators; Clownfish and skype translate.

I need this function to communicate with my friends in Russia.

 

If Skype have no alternative arranged after December this is most definitely a step back. I may have to find an alternative software.

I'll throw my major disappointment vote into this hat. I have used Skype Translate for YEARS. Now, I can't use it any more??? Why not? It really helps when I need to chat correctly and efficiently with my friends en Español (not to mention the fact that I don't have to memorize the correct keystrokes for the ñ !!!)
