New Google Translator Languages

The Google OS blog reports that Google added a couple of new languages to their translator: “Catalan, Filipino, Hebrew, Indonesian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Ukrainian and Vietnamese”. Ionut Alex. Chitu notes, “In most cases, Google uses English as an intermediary language, so when you translate a text from Indonesian to Vietnamese, Google translates the text to English and then it translates the result to Vietnamese. You’ll get the best results when one of the languages is English, since Google needs a single translation.” [Thanks DPic!]
