Microsoft unveils Skype Translator
Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella has demonstrated a future version of Skype featuring ‘near real-time’ interpretation of voice calls, The Verge has reported. The development version of Skype Translator was demonstrated at the Code Conference, where it interpreted between German and English in a conversation. “Ever since we started to speak, we wanted to cross the language boundary,” Nadella said before showing off the development version, which will be out in beta later this year and possibly as a commercial product within the next two-and-a-half years. The feature may not come free, Nadella added, but is already good enough to work between English to German, with plans to get it working with a number of other languages.
