Skype's New Feature Translates Calls Instantly

Language barriers be gone! Microsoft has unveiled a preview of Skype's new software that will translate your speech on video and voice calls on the spot.
"Do you like living in Mexico City?"
"Aqui esta muy lindo." ("Here is very nice.")
"What do you do for fun?" ("Que haces para divertirte?")
"Voy a las playas de Mejico." (I go to the beaches of Mexico.) (Video via Skype)
That's right. With Skype Translator, you speak your native language on one end, and the software translates the dialogue instantly using a computerized voice on the other side of the call.
