SwitftKey Keyboard app updated with Microsoft Translator support

SwitftKey Keyboard app updated with Microsoft Translator support
Microsoft announced early this month that it will bring Translator support to its SwiftKey Keyboard app for Android. The new feature has been included in the beta version of the app for about three weeks, but starting today, Microsoft is making it available to everyone.

Anyone who updates their SwiftKey Keyboard app or downloads the latest version will be getting Microsoft Translator support, which will allow them to use translations features without having to switch apps or copying and pasting back and forth. The new Microsoft Translator can be accessed from the app's Toolbar.

Besides translation features, the latest update adds support for several more languages: Adyghe, Nubian (Dongolawi), Dotyali, Gorontalo, Ingush, Kabiye, Mi'kmaq, Newar, Wakhi, and Kalmyk & Nubian (Kenzi).

Last but not least, SwiftKey devs confirmed they have included some updates to the Arabic (Egypt), S'gaw Karen, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi and Wolof languages.

And it keeps getting better; better than Google's overrated Gboard.

I would have to disagree with you on Gboard being overrated. Swiftkey is good but Gboard works very well for me and continues to get better and better.

I like both but I think I like SwiftKey a little better.

Yeah. Gboard is really good, but SwiftKey just edges it, for me. And I just found out about Exi for SwiftKey Xposed module a couple of weeks ago. I like the spacebar cursor control feature in gboard, but the module offers that and a whole lot more.
