Auto-Translated Search by Google and Others

Google has recently rolled out their auto-translated search feature into their Search Options sidebar. For instance, search for restaurant reviews antwerp, then click Show Options → Translated search. Google will automatically try to determine which languages are most relevant for your query to be translated into, and present results for those queries translated back. Clicking through to the target site, if it’s from the foreign languages set, will launch the page within Google Translate, i.e. immediately translated.

Another auto-translated search you might want to give a look is, displaying the (Google-powered) results of two languages side by side.

[Thanks and HK! Also see Google’s post on their translation feature.]
