Lync 2010 Conversation Translator

There is a simple and great extension of the Lync 2010 client that can allow you to have a real-time conversation with someone in a completely different language.

For example, just by adding a few registry entries, you can have an entire Lync conversation with someone who doesn’t speak English and Lync will do the language translation back and forth.

There is more information here but basically you just need to add the following current user registry entries and a new window is added to the Lync client.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftCommunicatorContextPackages{54C2C31A-A291-4DFA-825A-18994EBE9877}]

"Name"="Conversation Translator"

"ExtensibilityApplicationType"=dword:00000000

"ExtensibilityWindowSize"=dword:00000001

"DefaultContextPackage"=dword:00000000

"InternalURL"="http://input.microsoft.com/translator/OCTranslatorTestPage.html"

"ExternalURL"="http://input.microsoft.com/translator/OCTranslatorTestPage.html"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet SettingsZoneMapDomainsmicrosoft.cominput]

"http"=dword:00000002

Fantastic add-on!!
