The Star Strek-esque Realtime Skype Translator is finally here

Skype Translator starts breaking down language barriers

Some Months ago, Microsoft wowed us by demonstrating a Skype Call being translated from German to English in real-time, which is an impressive feat which hadn’t been achieved before.

Ever since then, we have been waiting for Microsoft’s Translator to release, letting our Star Trek dreams to come true. It is finally here, albeit as a limited-Preview Version.

The Preview Version can only translate between Spanish and English at the moment, but more languages will be added soon. But if you oare looking for just simple IM-conversation Translation, then you have access to over 40 Languages.

As noted above, it is a Preview Version, and you have to get an invite from Microsoft to use it.

What do you think? Do you think Microsoft’s real-time Translator will be accurate?
