How to Enable Google Talk's Universal Translator

Google Talk has a number of Translation bots available. Here is how to enable them so you can talk to people in your language, while they can talk to you in their language, and you will both understand each other!

1) Find the language you are interested in communicating in. Here is the list:

Languages
Bots
Arabic - English ar2en en2ar
Bulgarian - English bg2en en2bg
Czech - English cs2en en2cs
Danish - English da2en en2da
German - English de2en en2de
German - French de2fr fr2de
Greek - English el2en en2el
Spanish - English es2en en2es
Finnish - English fi2en en2fi
French - English fr2en en2fr
Hindi - English hi2en en2hi
Croatian - English hr2en en2hr
Italian - English it2en en2it
Japanese - English ja2en en2ja
Korean - English ko2en en2ko
Dutch - English nl2en en2nl
Norwegian - English no2en en2no
Polish - English pl2en en2pl
Portuguese - English pt2en en2pt
Romanian - English ro2en en2ro
Russian - English ru2en en2ru
Swedish - English sv2en en2sv
Chinese - English zh2en en2zh
Traditional Chinese - English zh-hant2en en2zh-hant
Traditional Chinese - Chinese zh-hant2zh zh2zh-hant


(from: http://www.google.com/support/talk/bin/answer.py?answer=89921#)

Their email addresses are: from language 2 to language @bot.talk.google.com

I used: pt2en and en2pt

pt2en = pt2en@bot.talk.google.com and en2pt = en2pt@bot.talk.google.com

2) Add the 2 translators (one for each direction) to your Google contacts.

a) Name doesn't matter. I used en2pt

b) email address was: en2pt@bot.talk.google.com

c) google Talk name is: en2pt

d) Do the same for the other direction, in this case, pt2en

3) Now you can use them! Just add pt2en and en2pt to your Group Conversation in Google Talk and your portuguese friend will understand you, and you will understand your portuguese friend.

+Emmanuel Rodrigues - Thank you so much for deciding to start a chat with me. When you talked to me, i saw your words in Portuguese and translated into English. I was absolutely amazed! Then I saw my words translated from English into Portuguese. I then realized we have a Star Trek style Universal Translator in Google Talk! I then posted to Orkut that "It can be done". This intrigued +William Lima who took this to level 2.

Many, many thanks to +William Lima for working so well with me in testing the English to Portuguese, Portuguese to English in Google Talk. I could not have done this at all without him. He is now a very good friend to me.
