      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Chat To A Google Translator

Recommended Posts

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.
