Now that the Web is more worldwide than ever, the number of non-native English speakers going online has ballooned, and yet online content in English still dominates. For these users, free translation services mean that an entire world of information can now actually be at their fingertips. We're doing something to help them out. Translation now fully powered by the Microsoft Translator technology is available through Live Search, as well as IE8, the Windows Live Toolbar, and even a translation bot for Windows Live Messenger, explained Lane Rau.
For example, to translate this search result, click "Translate this page" at the end of the result description (see attached pic). You'll see the page in a bilingual view, with the original page on the left, and the translated page on the right. Or just add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts and start chatting away.
