Microsoft Releases Updated Language Translation Bot for Windows Live Messenger

 
Microsoft has released the second Alpha Test of their prototype "real time" language translation bot for Windows Live Messenger. (Simply add mtbot@hotmail.com to your contacts and invite Tbot to your conversations.)
The main differences between TBot and TBot 2 Alpha:
 
    • TBot salutes you automatically without you having to type anything. TBot 2 Alpha requires a first message.
    • TBot 2 Alpha does not have a display picture
    • TBot 2 Alpha supports language auto detect as source language
    • TBot 2 Alpha support any-to-any translations
    • TBot’s “tbot stop” command just halted the translation; TBot 2 Alpha’s implementation kicks the bot out of the session (just like how “bot*bye” used to work)
    • TBot 2 Alpha does not implement “tbot start”
    • TBot 2 Alpha supports Polish (however the dialog messages are not perfect)
    • TBot 2 Alpha restricts the use of the special commands – only the person that started the conversation can change languages.
