updated 02:24 am EDT, Wed May 28, 2014

Skype to offer voice translation, beta expected late this year

Microsoft today announced its plans to release a real-time translation of voice conversations using Skype. Skype Translator will allow users to speak in their native language to another user who speaks a different language, with the software automatically translating it to the other person. The beta is anticipated to be released later this year, with its commercial availability estimated for debut within the next two and a half years. In its current development stage, translation can convert between English to German. The translation service may be a paid feature.

    Actually, pricing starts at $9.99/month for the Photoshop/Lightroom package and $19.99 for other single-app plans such as InDesign. The latter is a great deal. With InDesign I can easily save myself more than $20 worth of my time in a month. For authors that is great. Microsoft could never pay me enough to get me to layout books with Word.
