One of my friend Vishwas tried to send message in Skype and at that time he came to know that skype dosen’t supports Unicode Characters — Which is required stuff for sending multilingual message. He asked me to develop something. I was also knowing this and in back of my mind I was thinking to create some application using which skype can support Unicode Characters.
Secondly, I thought to use Google’s Translate feature in my application directly. So, user no need to go to Google Translate page do translation and copy-paste message. Then I found Google-API-for-dot-net
Now, the raw and basic material is ready with me. Now i need to write windows application and some hand crafted code to create my own Skype. But before starting i also thought a lot for name I wanted to give unique name and i found it — “PolyglotSkype” [polyglot — linguist: a person who speaks more than one language].
Finally, I am glad to share this tool with you. Below are few details of it:
PolyglotSkype supports unicode characters, using which you can chat with your buddies in any language.
- Unicode support.
- Loads all your online skype friends.
- In-built Google Translate support — Supports so many languages!.

How to use?
1. Install “PolyglotSkypeInstaller”.
2. Once installed it will create shortcut on your desktop “PolyglotSkype”.
3. Now, to use PolyglotSkype you need to be logged in to Skype.
4. When you run PolyglotSkype application skype will ask you for access. Please select “Allow access”.
5. That’s it! Enjoy 🙂
