We first heard about Skype's Translator feature back in May, and that it should arrive before the end of the year. Well, in keeping with that timeline, the video-chatting outfit opened up a preview for Windows 8.1 devices. As its moniker suggests, the new feature converts speech in real-time, to keep the lines of communication open without the need for a third person to do the translating. It also shows an on-screen transcript during calls and can sort IM translation in 45 languages. If you're wielding a computer or tablet that's running the aforementioned OS, head over to the source link to opt in to the preview ahead of the new tool's official arrival.
