As St. Patrick’s Day approaches (March 17), many Western countries around the world will start eating traditional Irish cuisine on that day, such as salted beef, cabbage, potatoes and soda bread, and naturally there will be plenty of interesting people to wear green. But what if you want to have a conversation with a real Irishman on that holiday (or any other day associated with it)? If the person prefers to speak Gaelic to English, this can be a big problem.
Thankfully, Microsoft has come up with a solution. With its popular Microsoft Translator Translator service, you can now communicate with Gaelic speakers by simply converting text and having a conversation using a smartphone!
Irish Gaelic is the newest member of the Microsoft Translator language family. All Microsoft translation services, including Custom Translator, will begin to support this language, which helps users build translation systems for domain-specific terms and styles.
Microsoft said: “Neural machine translation technology has recently achieved impressive quality improvements that allow smooth and accurate output even for languages that are scarce in the semantic library. Using deep learning, we have improved the machine translation model. With today’s release, our commitment to providing high-quality machine translation in Gaelic moves to the next stage, with the next task being to continue to improve the quality of our translations based on user feedback. “
