I posted under embargo that Yahoo Adds Babel Fish at midnight, Wednesday night. Yahoo! has has revitalized Babel Fish at Babel Fish is a translation tool first on December 9th, 1997 by Alta Vista (see SEW). You can translate up to 150 words of text to dozens of languages, you can translate a Web page, you can download babel fish widget to your Yahoo! toolbar, or you can add the feature to your web site. In addition, there are special features for German and French users that enables a "searcher's queries and looks across the entire Web in multiple languages to find the most comprehensive set of relevant results. Yahoo! Search results are returned on one multi-lingual page." For more information on Bable Fish, see the Babel Fish Help page at Yahoo! Also, see Gary Price's historical roundup on Babel Fish and the Yahoo! Search Blog.

WebmasterWorld members seem to be overall very happy with this announcement. Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.
