Star Trek Universal Translator

It’s funny but in the last few years I’ve found Google translation tools pretty handy for looking at various websites, but the the thought of being able to turn a cell phone into a Star Trek Universal Translator would change the world:

Star Trek’s Universal Translator – Within Just a Few Years?

“Progress being made by European researchers on automatic speech-to-speech translation technology could help the EU tackle one of the biggest remaining boundaries to internal trade, mobility and the free exchange of information – language. Though the system still cannot match the accuracy of a human translator or interpreter, they’re is convinced that, with further research a commercially viable automatic speech-to-speech translator will be feasible within a few years, at least for some simpler language pairs.”
