#Google #translate use at #Wikimania

At the dorm where I slept, a nice Polish lady manned the reception. She was nice and she spoke Polish. The Wikimanians did not. So communication was hard until.. until one had the great idea to use translate for communication.

It eased a lot of nerves most importantly of the lady who now could get most of her message out. She wanted to communicate and we wanted to understand, translate provided the interface.
