Okay this should have been done long ago–actually it should have been standard but then again it’s here now–translating IM text to German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese or from any of those languages to any of those listed. Not only you will send the message in any of the above languages but you will get the message back in the language you typed it in. Pretty cool. Except that it works right now only with Yahoo Messenger. Although it open source so you can download the code. I don’t know if I will mess with the code to but then again I might.
