Microsoft, through Skype and its other translation services, is making it even easier for people to share information across the globe. Skype Translator can help you communicate in 8 languages for voice calls, and in more than 50 languages while instant messaging.
With the advent of the internet, there are fewer barriers to communication than ever before. Distance is no longer a barrier to talking to each other. Now, with more advancements in technology and software, language will soon not be an impediment either.
These innovations are not just useful for social or business purposes. More medical practitioners, scientists, teachers and leaders are collaborating across the globe. Increased functionality from these services will allow such collaboration to be even more widely, and readily available with language no longer being the hurdle.
