Google Translate to Speak 10 More Languages

Google Translate, a free service provided by Google Inc. to translate a section of text or a webpage, is adding 10 more languages bringing the total to 23 languages.

The newly featured languages include Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Hindi, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian and Swedish.

A post in the Google blog says, "In addition, you can now translate text and web pages as well as perform cross-language searches between any two languages that we offer. For example, we now support Chinese translation to/from any of our languages (e.g., Chinese to French). So for those of you who will be following or attending the Olympics in Beijing this fall, you'll be able to more easily find and access content from local sources."

Google have also added a "Detect Language" option to help you automatically identify the language of the text you're trying to translate. And according to Google, the longer the text, the more accurate it will be.
