The Redmond, Wash.-based corporation is living up to its promise.Starting this week, users with Microsoft Windows 8.1 computers and tablets can preview what the Skype Translator can do by registering for an account on Skype’s website. However the company notes on the site that there are a “limited number of preview spots available.”Related: Meet Microsoft Band, the $199 Fitness Tracker That Also Works With iOS and AndroidThe company does caution users that Skype will “have a few rough edges but the more conversations it translates, the better it’ll get.” At the moment, in addition to the real-time translation, an on-screen transcript is included in your video call.While the instant-message chats can be translated into 45 languages, the translator is offering only 12 languages for the video conferences — Arabic, Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), French, Italian, Korean, Russian, English, German, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish.
