The Skype Translator service has been available for users that signed up and were approved by Microsoft for testing. It has now been made available for any and all users of Windows 8.1 or the Windows 10 pre-release. It can translate audio to and from English, Spanish, Italian or Mandarin in real time and can translate instant messages from another 50 languages. You will of course need someone to call who speaks a different language from you to see how bad the eggcorns are but watching live translation is always impressive. You can see it in action at The Inquirer and the link for the software is at the bottom of the article.
