Babbler, a translation tool

With the increasing number of international users of SL, there is an increasing need to be able to understand each other. While I took a year os Spanish in High School, it was many years ago and I have forgotten most of it and I don't understand German, French, Italian or Portuguese at all other than recognizing some root words and the like. That's where Babbler comes in, its a HUD by Max Case that uses Yahoo Pipes to translate what you say, or what others say to you. I was gifted with one bya German speaker and it has proved it's worth already. But here's the best's free. Not only that but you can gift it to others by pressing a button on it.

The Linden's ought to add this thing to the Library, it's that useful. You can get more info on it at Max Case's website

You can also find it in world by using Search.
