Finally some news?

by Samm Bennett
So the past few weeks have been pretty crazy with my new job at Google. I know I've been really poor at updating, so I'll see if I can give out some info. For starters, I'm doing a six month internship with the statistical machine translation group. In other words, I do some stuff related to getting languages translated to other languages. I'm not doing any production work, so I can't just point out some stuff on the google homepage. However, here's a link to the stuff my team is working on:

http://www.google.com/translate_t

And here is a really nifty thing:

http://www.google.com/translate_buttons?hl=en


It's a webpage full of buttons that you can just drag to your bookmark toolbar and it will create a link there. This link will allow you to use Google's translation stuff to translate the page your on from the source language to the target language of the button you picked. Really Awesome stuff, in my opinion.
