I don’t know whether to go with fish or tower on this one. Facebook is bringing instant translation for 44 languages.
If you stumble onto a Facebook post in a foreign language, Facebook lets you instantly translate it — in a semi-effective way. And beginning today, millions of people will have the option of instantly translating their own posts into any one of 44 other languages, so that they will automatically show up in your News Feed in your native tongue.
I can see how this could be a solid advancement for communication between cultures or the Seventh Seal is about to break.
