Translating Foreign Language Sites.
Even though the majority of sites are written in English, I still find occasional interesting looking content or links to subjects written in the web site owners native language, being naturally curious ( Or nosey. ) I would like to read them.
This is where Bablefish comes in, it can translate numerous languages to other languages and the results while not perfect, usually give you a good idea of what the text is about.
If you use Crazy browser (http://www.crazybrowser.com/ 700k download.), you will have a drop down menu at the end of the address bar that connects to Bablefish and attempts to translate your web page.
But if you are using good old IE, Opera, or Firefox you can surf along to http://babelfish.altavista.com/ where you can enter your block of text, or the URL of the complete page you want translating. ( The block of text is the most reliable, the page translator doesn't always work.)
Below is an example of text
translated from Mr Peacocks ( Dutch) site.
Since the 17th century axel had had
a mill. These stood on the bastion Vlissingen, at the end
of the present mill street. It was houten a prop mill,
which burned down in 1747. In 1750, this mill was
replaced by new stones town mill. In 1911, the wieken of
the mill were removed. In 1998, started a large-scale
restoration of the mill.
