Today Microsoft removed the sign up process required to beta test its Skype Translator app. Now if you want to use the almost real-time translation service, you can just download it without filling out a form. The service closes the communication gap between individuals speaking different languages by transcribing what a person just said or typed for the other party. The app is available for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 preview. If you're interested in chatting folks that speak a language different than your own, the service supports four voice languages -- English, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin -- and 50 languages via IM. So go ahead, make new friends in China and India and start chatting.
