Babelfish http://babelfish.altavista.com/ AltaVista web search facility now has Systran language translation. Taking its name from the multilingual creature of Adam's Hitchhiker's Guide, Babelfish is quick and easy. Beware pitfalls of literal translation, however. As a test, translate a sentence from one language to another and back... the result is "often strange and sometimes hysterical" 10/22/98 --submitted by Mike S.
