Tip: Use Babelfish To Translate Chat, Discussions In Real-Time

OK, probably everybody in the world already knows this, but you can use BabelFish (and other online translation services) to translate the discussion of people you encounter in Internet discussion.

This tip came up in an article in the Connecticut Post, of Bridgeport, Conn. It will come as no surprise to anyone viewing the byline of this post that the subject of the article is Second Life.
