Google is my friend

Waldir created a new Betawiki gadget. It is a real time saver. In a nutshell when you are going to localise, Google Translate is used to translate the text from English into your language. We have tested it for several languages and we find that in 80% of the messages, the result is great. The other messages needs some work.

All the message that are first translated by Google Translate are first FUZZIED. It is only a matter of removing the FUZZY tag to make the localised message available. Google proves again to be a friend because our localisers become more effective and for the languages Google Translate supports, it will become easier to keep up with the ever growing number of messages that need localising.

The only sad thing is that there are so many languages Google Translate does not support yet.
