Cheetah Mobile, a leading mobile internet company with global market coverage, announced the upcoming release of the international version of CM Translator, a top-selling handheld AI translation device in China.
Set to release later in May, CM Translator features an easy-to-use “One Click · One World” one-button design, ultra-long battery life with 180 days of standby time and 24 hours of continuous use per charge, and support for six languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai.
“CM Translator has been a huge hit in China, so we’re thrilled to bring this handy device to international customers, starting with the U.S.,” said Solomon Lee, VP of AIoT at Cheetah Mobile. “CM Translator’s one-click to translate feature makes it a must-have accessory for overseas travellers and multi-lingual families.”
Cheetah Mobile announced the upcoming launch at the Microsoft Build developer conference in Seattle. CM Translator is powered by AI technology from Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services, including machine translation and neural TTS capabilities, as well as Automatic Speech Recognition from Beijing OrionStar. Beijing OrionStar is an AI company in which Cheetah Mobile holds about 40% of equity.
“Azure Cognitive Services is proud to work with partners like Cheetah Mobile to bring our industry-leading translation and speech services to customers around the world. CM Translator is an example of how Azure Cognitive Services opens up new ways of easily communicating across language and culture,” said Xuedong Huang, Technical Fellow, Cloud + AI, Microsoft.
Attendees of Microsoft Build 2019 can visit the Azure Cognitive Services booth for a hands-on demo of the international version of CM Translator. Microsoft has highlighted CM Translator as a customer success story in an online case study.
