I don't think perfect universal translation will never be possible, much less in real-time.
Consider for example how many languages aren't subject-verb-object word order like English. Klingon, for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klingon_language#Grammar
I chose the Bing translator because it's a Microsoft product and presumably they'd use the same translation algorithms that Bing uses to do the audio language conversions.

But as the German speaking poster up thread pointed out in my example even Bing translating a newspaper headline wasn't entirely accurate.
