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.

@Natasha, let me jump in here: are you guys, by any chance, working on offering a multi-audio channel feature which would allow for simultaneous interpretation to be made in TEAMS, similar to what ZOOM has?
Having a custom dictionary would be very useful, especially for acronyms.

Make live captions available in several different languages using the Microsoft Translation Service. This would be huge for multi-national companies that want to have meetings and feel most comfortable speaking in their native languages.

With this feature add a configuration item "Use custom dictionaries" which allows the user to input their custom dictionary key.

At the moment, during a teams meeting, all participants open up the Microsoft Translater app. However, this very rarely works.
It would be great if the live caption feature translated what people were saying, rather than have to rely on another app.
This would be brilliant, just like Skype's live translation feature. It'd be a huge help to multi-nationals as it always feels slightly uncomfortable to just assume people speak English / expect them to speak it... It'd be so much more inclusive enabling people to communicate whilst speaking their native languages. Plus if you add the feature to Teams, surely it'll immediately start improving the translation AI as you'll have so many more people using it (similar to English live captions) there'll be so much more data for the AI to learn with.
Very important tool for our firm providing help to International US tax payers. Any time line on the release. Are you offering Beta test users>
Agreed, would really really like this feature for international work and training
Live Translation, NOW, please...

This feature is heavily requested in my organization! Please let us know when its added to the roadmap with a link.
That would be very helpful for a multinational companys.

Also, it's important to improve the recognition accuracy of voice, and the translation. The current PowerPoint translation is so wrong from Chinese (speak) to English (sub-title).

Is there an update on this? This is so long overdue! I need this in the worst way right now...

Today we need a solution where we can have real time voice translator.
If I have a customer in France, he would speak French, then the meeting app would Realtime convert this back into English along with captions as an option, then English to French from my side.
In the same way, I would like to see this in meetings\LiveEvents, where users can pick there language play back of the selected translation options.

Any chance of having this? In the new normal should be a "Must".
