Translator bots

by

Google has just announced that you can add some (hopefully) useful translation bots to your gtalk contacts. The format is “[from language]2[to language]@bot.talk.google.com”, and the supported language pairs are: 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. So, for French to German translation, talk to fr2de@bot.talk.google.com.Western languages are working quite well, but according to Panxueni an expert of Chinese Languages at the University College of London the Chinese translation kind of… sucks 🙂 Well, it’s still an excuse to have a laugh with your Chinese friends 🙂
