Microsoft shows off real-time universal speech translator for Skype, coming in 2014

Skype Translator: Universal translation between spoken languages, like a Babel fish
At the inaugural Code Conference in California, CEO Satya Nadella has revealed that Microsoft’s real-time speech translation technology will finally make the jump from the mystical, bottomless pit of its R&D department to a consumer product: Skype.
