Tower of Babel -- on a level playing field!

One of the features I LOVE on Google is the translation tool -- it opens up information from around the world! So, if you speak a language other than English, head over to http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en, simply type in our url, http://genplus.blogspot.com (or the url of any page you are interested in) in the "Translate a Web Page" box and you will have the text in your language of choice. (Works as a translation from another language to English, as well!)

Here is the above copy translated into Spanish:

Una de las mejores características que Google tiene que ofrecer es su herramienta de traducción. Si hablas una lengua con excepción de inglés, la cabeza encima a http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en, mecanografía simplemente adentro nuestro URL, http://genplus.blogspot.com en “traduce la caja de un Web page” y tendrás el texto en tu lengua de la opción.

And into Chinese:

一個最好的特點谷歌必須提供給他們的翻譯工具. 如果你講英語以外的語言 ,頭部交給 http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en ,簡單型的url , http://genplus.blogspot.com在"翻譯網頁 "信箱,你將有文在你所選擇的語言 .

How about a bit of French?

Un des meilleurs dispositifs que Google doit offrir est leur outil de traduction. Si vous parlez une langue autre que l'anglais, le chef plus d'à http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en, saisissent simplement notre URL, http://genplus.blogspot.com dans la boîte « traduisent page Web » et vous aurez le texte dans votre langue de choix.


Una delle caratteristiche che migliori Google debba offrire è il loro mezzo di traduzione. Se parlate una lingua tranne l'inglese, la testa sopra a http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en, scrive semplicemente dentro il nostro URL a macchina, http://genplus.blogspot.com “traduce nella scatola di Web page„ ed avrete il testo nella vostra lingua della scelta.

Or Russian...

Одна из лучших особенностей Google может предложить их инструмент перевода. Если вы говорите на другом языке, чем английский, на голову над http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en, просто введите в нашем сайте, http://genplus.blogspot.com в "Перевести страницу" в ящике, и вам придется текст на русском языке по их выбору.

Here is how you say Gen Plus, Boomer, and 50 Plus in all those languages -- see if you can figure out which language each one is in (although, like the language of love, they appear to be fairly universal terms! Isn't that nice to know!):

GEN más, Boomer, y 50 más
GEN plus, Boomer, et 50 positifs
GEN plus, Boomer und 50 Plus
根加, boomer , 50 plus
Рашид Plus, Бумер, и 50 Plus

Now go have some fun traveling the world over the weekend and let me know what you find!
