Translating something quickly is very easy today, by adding the corresponding bot as buddy in GTalk.

If you just add bots like:

  • en2ro@bot.talk.google.com – English to Romanian
  • en2fr@bot.talk.google.com – English to French
  • ro2fr@bot.talk.google.com – Romanian to French
  • fr2en@bot.talk.google.com – French to English
  • the list includes all the languages supported by Google Translate

then you can chat with these “buddies”, telling something in the first language and they will reply with the translation in the second language, something like this:

(2:50:01 PM) andrei: I just want to test you
(2:50:14 PM) en2ro@bot.talk.google.com: Eu doar vreau să vă încerce

Of course it’s not perfect 🙂 but it’s a very nice feature.

For translating large amounts of text or websites, http://translate.google.com still remain the best choice.

Enjoy!
