What is Skype Translator:
Skype Translator is basically a service for Skype developed by Microsoft Research Team to take the real-time language translation to the next level. If everything goes as per the plan of Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella and Skype Corporate Vice President, Gurdeep Singh Pall then it can be the language barrier breaker for all the people across the globe.
Suppose a situation when you are talking to someone who doesn’t know your language and the same is the case with you. In this situation, it will prove to be really difficult to communicate; but not with Skype Translator. The Skype Translator offers you the real time translation for everything that person will say in his language, and will be displayed to you in your language.
