Google Translate, a free translator provided by Google (GOOG), now is capable of translating 10 more languages. WIth Google Translate AJAX API for API developers in place, Google should be able to keep adding more and more languages as time goes on.
In addition, Google translate can now detect a language of the site you are trying to translate as seen here:
Nice feature Googlers.
…and that’s great news any way you say it. Language is one of the biggest challenges we have in making information universally accessible. As part of the machine translation team within Google Research, I’m happy to report we’ve been hard at work to overcome this challenge. We’ve recently added translation capabilities for 10 new languages to Google Translate, bringing the total to 23 languages. The newly featured languages include Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Hindi, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian and Swedish.
In addition, you can now translate text and web pages as well as perform cross-language searches between any two languages that we offer. For example, we now support Chinese translation to/from any of our languages (e.g., Chinese to French). So for those of you who will be following or attending the Olympics in Beijing this fall, you’ll be able to more easily find and access content from local sources.
