Yahoo! hitchhikes into the galaxy of translation
April 28, 2006
Today Babel Fish is hanging his shingle here at Yahoo!, debuting Yahoo! Babel Fish across our properties worldwide.
The original babelfish page is still there. A search on Yahoo!’s press releases does not return any news, apart from an announcement of the Toolbar for Firefox featuring “Translate this page” based on Babelfish tools.
ANyway, Yahoo! branded translation service has two more language pair choices (among Chinese dialects), beta translator services to translate queries and search in multiple languages (only for German and French, at the moment), some integration with other services (e.g. Toolbar), and a new cocktail they’re calling “The Babbling Fish”🙂
