Google Talk bots translate in real-time

From time to time, I go to the Google language tools and translate something there. Now Google just made it a little easier for me: I can just send my message to one of the Google Chat Bot. The bot will instantly reply with the translation. If you use the Google translation a lot, this is much faster than using the HTML-based version. From the Googletalk blog:

“For more languages, just add any of the 29 23 other translation bots. They’re named using two-letter language abbreviations as “[from language]2[to language]@bot.talk.google.com”, and the supported language pairs are: ar2en, de2en, de2fr, el2en, en2ar, en2de, en2el, en2es, en2fr, en2it, en2ja, en2ko, en2nl, en2ru, en2zh, es2en, fr2de, fr2en, it2en, ja2en, ko2en, nl2en, ru2en, zh2en. So, for French to German translation, talk to fr2de@bot.talk.google.com.”
