Google Cuts Time Students Spend on Translations


Not too sure you'll have enough time to do the translation homework before that football match begins? Maybe you will if you let Google do the spadework for you. Just head to translate.google.com, type in the text (you can also copy and paste or upload a file) and watch Google statistical algorithms instantly translate it for you. Whilst the translation will not be perfect there will be little left for you to polish.

Grown-ups can also use it to translate texts into some 52 languages as I write this. That should speed up the learning of new languages. It's gonna be real cool when kreol gets added there.

Not a bad translation to begin with if you ask me.
