For your next trip to China

BBC:
Software that can translate spoken English into spoken Chinese almost instantly has been demonstrated by Microsoft.

The software preserves intonation and cadence so the translated speech still sounds like the original speaker.

Microsoft said research breakthroughs had reduced the number of errors made by the instant translation system.

It said it modelled the system on the way brains work to improve its accuracy.
... 
There is much more.

This has the potential of revolutionizing communications among various languages.  They are probably still have to work on communications between spouses in the same language.

Seriously, this software could make it easier for troops to communicate with people in remote areas of the world.
