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.

This would be fantastic!
"Echtzeit-Übersetzungsfunktion für Teambesprechungen" Gibt es hierzu Updates
Ich spreche Deutsch und habe die Anfrage auch bereits gestellt, wir arbeiten in einer Firma mit über 120000 beschäftigten Welt weit.
This would be very useful
Live Captions in Teams Meetings are only available in English (US) for now. Make live captions available in several different languages

While this user voice site is great, It's rather sad that there is apparently little engagement from MS product staff on these forums... I see endless requests for updates and on many of these items even those with 10s of thousands of votes, it can be YEARS between updates and no real match between the updates from MS staff and the published roadmaps. Happy to provide details... IF MS folks actually leverage this forum... sigh.
REALLY need this for global corporate meetings.
Any update on this? I am working with a multinational research group developing PPE for refugees. Our shared platform of choice, due to security restrictions in some of the organisations, is Teams.
This would be an extremely useful feature as we need to communicate with people on the ground as well as in the organisations to respond to refugees' and their host communities' needs.
The project runs for the next eighteen months. Do you think it'll be ready for any of that period?

It's been 15 months since you said you were working on this. Any updates?

I am an English native speaker and have been helping my 1st grader who is going to school in French. I would super love to see the integration of the language/conversation application integrated into Microsoft Teams.

Sounds like a great feature. Can we have separate audio streams too - some of us like to do simultaneous voice translation

We are using a combination of Teams and Microsoft Translator during regional calls. It works, but its clunky.
The experience would be so much better if Translator functionality was built into Teams meetings
Due to the Coronavirus, parents are being asked to take a primary role in the education of their child and many would value the possibility to communicate with their child's teacher in their native tongue. I encourage this feature to be added to Teams.
Any update on this feature? Would be great to have this similar to what Zoom does.
Please help us as soon as possible!

Hello. Looking at the last update from Natasha at Microsoft it was over a year ago, please can I ask if there is any update even if expected in 2021. I don't see any entries in the MS M365 road map.
I work in the Southern African region where we regularly meet with multi-audience with English, French, Portuguese and some Spanish as languages. Real-time translation is more than nice to have indeed.
It is must during Covid in some markets like Japan
Its quite clear that real time translation is a very popular ask. I think MS should double up on delivering the same
Seems like its been a while since Natasha (or anyone else from Microsoft) has responded on this.... what happened to "We are working on the captioning feature"???
