New York: Technology giant Microsoft has launched a translator app that can be used on a wide variety of devices and supports 50 different languages.

Google's Translate app, on the other hand, supports only 27 languages for text and voice conversion.

Available for iOS and Android platforms, the app called Microsoft Translator, supports phones and tablets as well as the Apple Watch and smartwatches that run Android Wear, CNET online reported.

One can type or speak the word or phrase to be translated. In response, the app shows the translated text on the screen and then speaks it too.

Text can also be copy-pastes from and to other apps for translation.

Microsoft has already been serving up language translation via its Bing website along with apps for its Windows Phone mobile operating system and its Windows 10 desktop software.

The company also offers translation through its Skype Translator programme, which is soon due to become part of the Skype app itself.

With the new app, Microsoft is entering into Google territory, which has long offered translation services on the web as well as for iOS and Android.

With Microsoft Translator, you can speak directly into your watch to get an instant translation in any of the 50 different languages.

The app can correctly pronounce the phrase for you through your watch. And all your translations and settings are synchronized between your watch and your phone.
