Real-time translation feature for Teams meeting
It would be great that Teams could implement a real-time translation for conversations in a meeting and captioning feature like the Presentation Translator add-in for PowerPoint. This feature would be useful to have a Teams meeting with users in other countries.
Thank you very much for your feedback.
We are working on the captioning feature.

+1 i would like to have a "default language" per Channel, so the spell checker knows what to to.
Also Teams should be able to detect the right language per Message and offers a translation to the channel langauge.
It would be great to have a user setting like "languages i understand" and teams can translate posts in a foreign language to one of my languages
Sign me up! We work in a trilingual company (English, Spanish, Catalan), and many times the coordination of tasks goes through lots of hands and multiple languages. This would be GREAT on a day to day basis.
@Suphatra - we discussed this at the global tour you guys did. Appears there are a few ideas on similar need as this. WeChat and Facebook and even skype have reasonable implementations of this that allow translated and untranslated views. Can you provide any visibility / update??
+1! Please consider adding this option into Teams app. :) Thanks

I fully agree - As the strategy clearly moves to "Yammer and Teams" for all communications, just like Yammer, Teams needs the Translator API for conversations.
For us, it is a real nightmare, as Michelin has two official languages (French and English) and we have LOTS of English speakers that do not speak French (it is normal...) and the occasional French speaker who does not speak English, but has lots of valuable skills and experience to offer...
We are losing the French-only speakers completely in Teams, and (by comparison) we have great interactions in Yammer thanks to the Translator API.

Our customer is a global player in manufacturing (car market) and strongly requests us such feature

The translation feature, which is not available in the Microsoft Teams App, but is available in Skype, if added to Teams, would make the programme a true business and organisation package. Indeed I feel with many others that without a Translator feature the Teams programme is not a complete business package. Microsoft, please could you consider adding the Translator feature to Teams? My thanks, David.
I would say in a global world this is vital

My company has a diverse makeup and conversations can become multi lingual. A quick translate function in conversation would be much better then going to Google Translate and pasting in text.

I would really like to see this happen :) I work with others all over the world and I don't want to them to revert back to one language.
Translation to initiated per message by the end-user rather than automatically translated.
Teams would replace use use of WeChat if this existed
we would def use
This would be really useful for multilanguage working teams
Sometimes is just easier to use your own language for writing, or you start a conversation in the middle of another and they are using different language. To have the option for automatic translation of the messages would be great for multicultural teams.
I know other apps that have this functionality and sometimes is really useful.
