The examples given (airport, bank, hospital) usually include a limited number of phrases, e.g.,concerning check-in, opening an account or telling where it hurts, that can be stored in and "translated" by a computer system. As for real time translation of lectures or of a normal conversation covering several topics and switching between them spontaneously: I don't think computers will be able to that take over soon.

Just a combination of voice recognition and automated translation. The problem is, voice recognition recquires training, which I can't see people taking time to do in the airport, and even then needs proofreading; and as for automated translation, we're all aware of how unreliable that is.
