would this be translation services "on the fly" ??

That would be soo cool!! IMO, It would be the last mile for Multi users software , BTW , in the old days it would be MUD's :)-

MUC is technically Multi-User Conference, a component for Jabber, which Google Talk uses... actually surprised it's taking them this long, it's always been REALLY easy to implement on my jabber servers.

Project page is here – gna.org/projects/mu-conference ...

I hope it won't be as lousy as the Live Messenger conference talk.
cause it adds users without letting the added person to authorize itself.

As Jeremy said MUC is an official XMPP (Jabber) extension. Here is a specification: xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.h ...

Well, the problem could be getting it to scale to millions of people worldwide and work with regional encodings. Then they'd have to update all 3 of their clients – the Javascript GMail one, the Flash widget and the program. This might not roll out for a while.

That's not a problem, Jabber always uses UTF-8.

Yeah, I think that will happen gradually. I suppose standalone program will be first and than Gmail.

Hi,
I know this is a little bit off-topic but it seems to be a good place to ask.
I'd like to become Google's Czech translator for Google Talk. Is there any way to contact Google staff about this? Google Talk is really a great product and if there is a localized version, it may become a serious competitor to the old-fashioned ICQ (it's still the most popular IM protocol around here).
Thanks for a reply!

Usually when Google want people to translate something it posts that in Google in Your Language program – services.google.com/tcbin/tc.p ...

Who works much time online on different workstations maybe using meebo.com as a multi user HTTP-/website-messenger. Meebo has short time ago released multi user chats in a very easy way. But may be they use a proprietary solution.

best greetings, Thomas
