Microsoft may have Windows 10 rolling out and Windows 10 Mobile and brand new hardware to look forward to this fall, but the company is still continuing its new expansions. Of course, that means launching software on other platforms (primarily Android) as Redmond attempts to take an even bigger chunk of Google?s pie. The latest app to land on the rival OS is Microsoft Translator.

The application is available for free and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and has the ability to translate text and speech in 50 languages. A quick run through the app shows that Microsoft Translator does not anything new compared to Google Translate, how it does have one big advantage at the moment, it is available for Android Wear.

Google has yet to launch its own translation service on the Android wearable platform for smartwatches, so Microsoft Translate is probably your best option on that front at the moment. In terms of Android smartphones, the new app will be available for devices running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and more.
