I’m happy to see Microsoft Research launch this new Web site widget.
I’ll have to test it out on my site when I get the time — and would love to hear from others who have tried it.
A demo site is here.
I really like how the widget creates a more seamless translation experience, which is a big step toward taking machine translation to the masses. I’m looking forward to the day when I no longer have to manually copy and paste URLs into Google Translate and the like.
However, I did get confused initially on figuring out how to return the page back to English. That bar at the top of the page blended in a bit too much at first. I’d like to see a language reset button on the widget itself.
