Language

Once in awhile, I run into a web page in another language. Not being language-skilled, I make use of page translators. These can be quite useful and occasionally comical.

For a long, long time, I’ve used Babelfish on AltaVista. It allows you to translate a block of text or a web page. Occasionally its been missing a language option I wanted though.

Recently, I’ve discovered Googles Language Tools. This has the the same text block or web page translation capability and what looks like a very similar set of language options. But it also allows you to do a Google Search by language and/or by country.  You can save common settings to your preferences it you, for example, commonly search Romanian sources.
