GoogleTalk Translation

Google now allow you to translate from and to dozen of languages using any XMPP client (including GTalk of course).

Add [src language]2[dest language]

to your GTalk contacts and bingo — you’ve got your personal machine interpreter.
For example will translate from English to Chinese.

The quality of translation looks pretty good in simple tests (I tried English to Italy).

The following language pairs are supported:
ar2en, bg2en, de2en, de2fr, el2en, en2ar, en2de, en2el, en2es, en2fr, en2it, en2ja, en2ko, en2nl, en2ru, en2zh, es2en, fi2en, fr2de, fr2en, hi2en, hr2en, it2en, ja2en, ko2en, nl2en, ru2en, uk2en, ur2en, zh2en.

Nice work Google.......
