Automated language translation

Hi Future Fans,

This one is a relatively light post!

There continue to be announcements around language translation, and a lot of this is due to AI/Neural networks.

Microsoft announced a breakthrough in Chinese to English (text) translation, which has matched human translation for the first time.

Microsoft, of course, also offers real time language translation via Skype, which I still find amazing.

Secondly, Baidu has released a new pocket translator that will translate between English and Chinese at the push of a button.

Language, it seems, should not be a barrier for much longer.
