Finally, A Search Engine For Bilinguals

Click here to search on “Web globalization” in English and Chinese.

This could be a handy tool for testing Google adwords in other markets. Apart from that, I’m not sure how I’d use it just yet, at least not until I improve on my Spanish.

I can’t imagine Google will look too kindly at its design:
