Babelfish from Yahoo - For those of us not too good at foreign languages. A very useful website for when you come across a web page in French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese or even Russian, that might hold information you need. Just put the URL in the box, or cut and paste a block of text, click the button and it is translated for you, into pretty good English, or even between French and German. Not 100% accurate but you will almost certainly be able to get the gist of it, and have a good laugh too. For instance do you know what a Dwarf Sump Chicken is? No? It's a Baillon's Crake translated from German to English. Perhaps you can find better.
