Microsoft Launches Translation Tool

Yesterday, Search Engine Land announced that Microsoft has launched Windows Live Translator. Essentially, this is Babelfish for Microsoft.

The interface looks pretty impressive, and I'm sure that if I knew any other language besides a little bit of Hebrew, it would work for me. But DigitalPoint Forums members don't think so. In fact, it seems that Google Translate has succeeded.

Then again, the DigitalPoint Forums member was trying to translate a vulgar word, after all. Perhaps there are some filters in play.

Forum discussion continues at DigitalPoint Forums.

Excellent information. I hope this service can be useful instead of paying outragous fees for translation. (i.e. $.010 per word)
