If you need to translate to another language and occasionally need help on a word there is a new feature in Gmail that you may find helpful. You can find more details on the blog of Rich Tehrani.

What you are doing is chatting to the bot that does Google translations. So for example if you want to translate from English to French, you add en2fr@bot.talk.google.com as one of your contacts. Then whenever you go chat with en2fr, what ever you say will be translated in the reply from the bot. If you're a frequent user of Gmail, as I am, you may find this a very useful feature. The translation isn't perfect but it often will provide what you're looking for.

It's OK and certainly useful for very simple things. However, it is not ready for anything remotely serious. I blogged about its results translating Arabic into English. Lots of mistakes but you get the gist of what's being said.
