How many of you use Babelfish? For the uninitiated, its an AltaVista provided web service that translates sentences between several languages. It's only yesterday that I realized that the the name is adapted from Douglas Adams's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", which is highly imaginative fare, nevertheless. The babelfish is a fictional sea animal which, once stuffed into a person's ear, makes the person understand Vorgon-speak (acting like a translator). Cool!
