Some languages are now listed as betas.
I think better translation services and internationalisation would be a great plus for Google.
Z.B. For instance par exemple por ejemplo they freezed Blogger's translation and the automatic translation still makes me laugh.

I thought Google used Systran as their MT engine. If this is true, why don't they have all the same languages available as Babelfish (Altavista)? Are they developing their own dictionaries or something...?

Also, this old article suggested that Google were creating their own machine translation system:,1759,1668 ...

Do you think that was referring to what is now known as the WordTranslator feature in their latest toolbar beta...?
