Yesterday, Microsoft Translator team announced that they have added support for instant translations from French, German, Italian, and Spanish in Cortana on Windows 10.

When you are using Windows 10 in these languages and need a quick translation of a phrase, you can now just ask Cortana and you’ll get your translation in an instant. You can also type the phrase into the Cortana toolbar in case you’re in a place where you can’t speak it out loud.

Currently, you can say in English, “Hey Cortana, translate where is the nearest taxi stand in Polish” (or any supported languages) and receive the translated phrase from Microsoft Translator right within Cortana. With this new update, you can ask these questions in these four new supported languages.

Examples provided by Microsoft are listed below,

French German Italian Spanish
Traduis où est le restaurant le plus proche en Suédois. Übersetze ‚Wo befindet sich das nächstliegende Restaurant?’ ins Schwedische. Traduce dov’è il ristorante più vicino in svedese. Traduce ¿dónde está el restaurante más cercano en sueco.
Comment dit-on où est l’hôtel le plus proche en Thaï? Wie sagt man ‚Wo ist der nächste Hotelladen’ in Thailändisch? Si puo dire dov’è la boutique d’albergo più vicinain thailandese? ¿Cómo dices dónde está el hotel más cercano en tailandés?
