  • The Windows Phone Translator App from Microsoft provides this functionality.

  • Thanks for your response. You are right, the translator app works offline as long as you type a word or phrase, or shoot a picture of the text. What does NOT work offline is the voice recognition part.  Does anyone know of any english/spanish app that works offline as in "speech to speech" ?

  • Hi Fred-Ro,

    You are absolutely right.. the offline functionality of the app works with Camera and Type but not with Speech due to the size of the language models needed to do accurate speech recognition. We continue to explore avenues to improve the speech features of the app, so please stay tuned to our blog for updates.
