Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella announced that the company's popular program for text, voice and video communication will get a supplement in the form of a universal translator. Skype translator should, according to him, be available during the second half of this year in versions for Windows 8.
Ever since the time when Star Trek was the culmination of the SF genre, every lover of technology wondered how were Earthlings in such films and tv series able to communicate with any other species that used different languages. The answer is - the universal real-time translator. Latest information from the Vice president of Android project, Hugo Barre, say that Google is on track to produce the first such device.
