Microsoft to Launch Real-time translation tool for Skype

Satya Nadella announced the launch of real-time translation tool for Skype by year-end while speaking at the Code Conference in Southern California.
 
Communication between two Skype users speaking different languages will be much easier with real time translation. Skype Translator helps to overcome the language barrier.
 
 
Gurdeep Pall, Microsoft corporate vice president of Skype and Lync, demoed the new Skype Translator app
 
Gurdeep Pall said “Skype Translator results from decades of work by the industry, years of work by our researchers, and now is being developed jointly by the Skype and Microsoft Translator teams. The demo showed near real-time audio translation from English to German and vice versa, combining Skype voice and IM technologies with Microsoft Translator, and neural network-based speech recognition.
 
In conference, Satya discussed his views on how Microsoft is evolving to a more personal, more human era of computing.
 
Skype Translator first will be available as a Windows 8 beta app before the end of 2014. This feature will be available on all platforms including mobile apps later.
