Those of us who live in a part of the world where our mother tongue (in my case, American English) is the language of the ethnic minority [I believe that's the politically correct phrase] will be interested in the following article in the BBC news:

A device has been developed that will help people have bilingual conversations. A "Tower of Babel" device that gives the illusion of being bilingual is being developed by US scientists. Users simply have to silently mouth a word in their own language for it to be translated and read out in another.

The researchers said the effect was like watching a television programme that had been dubbed.

The system, detailed in New Scientist, is not yet fully accurate, but experts said it showed the technology was "within reach".
