Google Toolbar for IE Speaks Your Language (July 2, 2009) — Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer (IE) introduces revamped translation tools, giving users one-click powers of conversion over many languages.

google_toolbar_languageGoogle’s one-click page translation service can now translate user comments, no matter what language you’re in. It can even take multiple comments in several languages and unify them.

Clicking a link will automatically translate the new page, as long as its part of the same domain as the original.

The new Translate feature is available in all international versions of Toolbar, including English, and the translation service supports 41 different languages: Albanian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

Not all words on a page will be translated, but it will be limited only to text that’s been embedded in logos and other art.

If you need a lot of on-the-fly translation, this could be a major time saver.
