Anyone that frequents the AltaVista search engine may have noticed an option to translate a foreign site when one appears in the search results A program called "Babel Fish" is behind this technolgy and is available as a stand alone web interface You can type anything into the interface (up to about forty sentences at a time) or type in any web address to be translated It's a great way to read foreign newspapers, websites or anything!

Here are the current languages that it supports:

English to French

English to German

English to Italian

English to Portuguese

English to Spanish

French to English

German to English

Italian to English

Portuguese to English

Russian to English

Spanish to English

French to German

German to French

So if you ever wondered how to say:

"Who is more macho, me or Richardo Montalban" in Spanish

(It's "Quién es más macho, yo o Ricardo Montalban?") go to:
