It’s a global world and you’re just playing in it. You want to connect to a lot of people? Start doing a little more to speak their language. Today, Yahoo! rolled out Babel Fish today, a translation site that lets you cut/paste snippets of text into a box and then request it back in other languages. The translations are never good enough to pass you off as a native speaker, but here’s the thing: people receiving your attempt at least give you credit for trying to meet them half way. It’s definitely a useful tool.
