Skype does not have a built in translation feature. I guess you need to use an online translator like www.bing.com/translator to translate messages back and forth. Or learn a new language

I use clownfish to translate messages to someone I talk to in Mexico.  Of course over the past two years I have learn to speak some english.  In the meantime I have used clownfish to translate my messages for us.  I understand in the new version of skype that will no longer be an option. 

Is there a way to translate messages in the new versions of skype?  If not, can this be intergrated with Bing?

To be honest this is very upsetting to me that responses that I have received are:

- No

- Learn the new language

- Just copy and paste

- Find a new chat program

 

I have tried other programs and they are riddled with viruses.  I find cutting and pasting a huge incovenience when skype and Bing are now ran by the same company.  "Learn a new language", well I just want to say some nasty things to the computer on that comment.

 

Please let me know how this can be completed, translating easily from spanish to english.

 

Thanks!

Copy paste is not an option for voice in a meeting to more than a few people when some are out of language.  But thanks anyway.  I'm looking to find out how to particpate in the Skype beta test as the email stated.
