Cross-lingual search engine

Need to search the web with your language as the search input and another language for the result? Check out Babelplex, where this link shows the twin screen results for “machine translation” in English and French. It’s very fast, and offers the bonus of learning about comparative hits across languages (in this case, well over 6 million hits in English, against only 347,000 in French). Pity about that loathsome Babel morpheme doing overtime again.
