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 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".

I'm amazed Teams doesn't have live audio translation for meetings working yet for multiple languages when Skype has had this since 2014. You basically just need to port it over. And the current recommended solution of using the Microsoft Translator app separate is also just silly when again this just proves you have the technology and simply need to integrate it. I will tell you this is the main reason Teams isn't being used more by international companies that require this feature.
This is a must required feature in the new normal....
The captioning feature is very good. I am currently taking my Iphone and putting up to the speaker to instantly translate my Spanish and English meetings for everyone. Now how cool would it be to have the installed in MS Teams??!!!
