Lost In Translation With MeGlobe



MeGlobe is a web based chat application that allows you to send instant message with real time translation. It supports about 15 languages. When I first saw this server I thought that is cool. It can translate your language into other one after you sent. You can pick a language that you want translated. Actually, it just use a robot to do this job. Maybe it uses Google Translate, or other one. I know translation is not easy, especially for robot translation. You only guess about meaning while a robot translate something.



I am not impress for this service, I was a little disappointed about translation quality. But have something is better than nothing. If you want talk to someone who speak another language maybe it can helps you a little.



MeGlobe是一个在线聊天网站,它可以将你的语言翻译成其他语言,并支持15种语言。当我第一次看到这个网站时心想这一定很酷,它会在你发送信息后立刻翻译成另一种语言。事实上,它只是机器翻译,也许是使用Google翻译,或者什么别的机器翻译。我知道翻译并不容易,尤其是对那些机器翻译,你只能猜他们的大概含义。

我对这个服务并没有什么特别的印象,我对它的翻译质量还有点失望。但是有总比没有要好。如果你要与一个说其他语言的人聊天的话,也许它会帮上一点忙。
