Web-Based Translation Tools

In honor of Cinco de Mayo I thought I’d take a look at a couple of online translation tools:

Babel Fish Translation
Enter in a phrase or a web site address and Babel Fish will translate it for you. Languages available include most European languages, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.

Again enter in a phrase or web site address and Google will translate it.

The translations are computer generated – so they’re not perfect – but it’s better than getting out your high school Spanish dictionary. Also, I have noticed that these tools do not work with dynamically generated sites, which are generally sites with the longer URLs that often include .asp but they work on traditional html pages.
