Windows Phone Dev Center offers translation feature

As Microsoft gets ready for the launch of Windows Phone 8 later this fall, the company is also beefing up its Windows Phone Dev Center for app developers. Today, the company announced that it has launched the first of a planned series of updates to the Windows Phone Dev Center.

In a post on the official Microsoft Phone developer blog, Microsoft states:

This month’s update includes more than 100 tweaks and fixes. Most are intended to improve reliability and performance or fix app submission issues you’ve reported. We added image caching for better site response, rewrote some error messages you told us were confusing, and added a new time-saving link in the app download report to the app details.

One of the cooler new features is the ability for Windows Phone app developers to translate the user reviews of their apps that are in a language they don't recognize over to their native language. You can see an example of that feature in the screenshot above.

It will be interesting to see what other new changes and additions will be included for Windows Phone app makers in future updates to the Dev Center ahead of the Windows Phone 8 launch.
