Translate it now !

Since I do think that spoken languages are just pipes and I use them interchangeably, I’ve recently added a translate tool on the right column to ease readers access contents on my blog.

But sometimes you find yourself reading on some foreign bit of info, like a swedish newspaper… sure, one can easily perform a full translation by just going to google translate, but supposing you’re learning how to use a new pipe, how can you translate that word and integrate it into your vocabulary without losing the focus on the piece of text you were reading on the first place ?

Firefox with greasemonkey together with Google Translator Tooltip, saves the day for me, I hope it’s useful to you as well ;)

Hint: configure it as “detect language” and you have an anti-babel device in just one double click.
