Arrow Google Talk Now Features Real-Time Translation

Google's instant messaging program, Talk, now features real-time translation via twenty-three 'language bots' you can add to your group chats.

Google has been offering translation services for blocks of text (and, for that matter, entire websites) for quite some time, of course. While it's always been possible to use this service to translate your instant messages, it's hardly been practical: type response, translate, copy, paste into Google Talk, send, wait for reply, copy, paste into Google Translate, translate. The new 'bots' introduced by Google use a protocol called XMPP which is open to all, so if you fancy making your own Elven-to-Klingon translator now's your chance.

The usage of the bots is certainly simple. Each bot takes the form of [language]2[language]@bot.talk.google.com; just replace the two languages with the standard two letter abbreviations for each language. To translate from German to English, for example, add [email protected] to your conversation. It would probably also help to add [email protected] as well, if you want to have a hope of understanding the reply.
