Google Talk gets translation bots.

Google has added translation bots to crawl their Google Talk
chat software. The intention is to translate whatever you type in a Google chat
to Chinese. For example, open a chat with en2zh@bot.talk.google.com, type hello
and the bot automatically translates to 你好.
This will certainly make international communication  Much easier and faster. "En2zh"
which determines the language pair, in this case Chinese and English.

 Other language pairs according to Google are:

ar2en, bg2en, de2en, de2fr, el2en, en2ar, en2de, en2el,
en2es, en2fr, en2it, en2ja, en2ko, en2nl, en2ru, es2en, fi2en, fr2de, fr2en,
hi2en, hr2en, it2en, ja2en, ko2en, nl2en, ru2en, uk2en, ur2en, zh2en.

 Add the @bot.talk.google.com to the right language pair to
get the full bot address, add as a contact and chat. Although this is quite a
handy feature the quality of Google’s translation program still needs quite a
lot of work. To view this feature you need to install the chat program – Google Talk.
