They assume you come from this page, that is linked from the homepage:
google.com/language_tools?hl=e ...

It is a new url.

Previously translate.google.com would just redirect to google.com. The interface is the same old stuff but this redirect is brand new.

I take it that new goodies are going to show up on this sub-domain.

<< It is a new url. >>

How come you think the redirect is new? I'm sure I've been using translate.google.com to get there for ages...

It is definitely not new. I agree with Tony, I've translate.google.com too for quite some time.

I'm sure that page is really not new at all, but usually I do not access to that page by "translate.google.com".
Usually this page is known as google.com/translate_t ;-)

I am pretty sure it wasn't used to be translate.google.com. Because i use type them all the time and it will redirect to homepage and i would click on the language tools link to get there and i use to wonder why they use to do it. It was like that the last time i checked some few months ago.

yeah i am sure about it........
   @ tony and TOMHTML
   translate.google.com is new ...

   i've tried accessing the above url sometimes back and i get a page cannot be displayed error... usually google.com/translate_t works...

But i think Google has updated a new url translate.google.com
