New Languages in Google Translate

I see Google Translate has now added 10 languages (Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Hindi, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian and Swedish), bringing the total to 23. There is also a new ability to perform cross-language searches, “For example, we now support Chinese translation to/from any of our languages (e.g., Chinese to French)”, they tell us.

Naturally, this means you’ll be able to find and access tonnes of content from local sources as you keep up with the summer’s unfolding developments in Tib…, er, I mean the Olympics in Bejing. Whatever.

On the subject of Polish – I see the .pl domain name has gone through the million mark.
