Let's all take a look back, way back in time to the year 1982. 32 years ago, Reagan was president, gas was $1.19 a gallon and video chat was just the punch line in "Airplane II: The Sequel." Remember this scene?

Fast forward to today and video chat is so ubiquitous that you may use Skype every single day to talk face-to-face with your loved ones anywhere in the world. Now Skype has added another science fiction feature that will make you believe we're living in the future we've always dreamed of: instant translation.

Imagine logging onto Skype with a non-English speaker and having a face-to-face conversation with no language barrier. That's exactly what you could be able to do right now thanks to Skype Translator.
