Astounding Translation. Microsoft takes speech recognition to the next level.

Picture the ability to speak to anyone anywhere in the world and whatever language you want in your own voice.

This project from Microsoft Research is going in that direction. Star Trek fans might call this a sort of universal translator. Microsoft is one of those companies that has some great stuff in the pipeline. I hope things don't get clogged up and this sort of product and/or service sees the light of day.

I'd hate to see this translation get lost.
