Google TalkHey Surveyors...are you using Google Talk for messaging and chat?  If so, I bet you didn't know that you could chat with other surveyors in their native language by adding translation bots!   Here's how you do it.  Pick the languages that you'd like to translate in real time while talking to another person on Google Talk and from then on, everytime a person in your contacts which doesn't speak your native language comes online, just begin chatting as normal and on their end, what you say will be translated by the time it gets there and vice versa.

Instructions for Adding Translation Bots (you only need to do this once):

Google Talk can help you with quick translations, or even translate your chats in real-time! All you need to do is chat with one of our Translation Bots. The bots are named using two-letter language abbreviations formatted as '[from language]2[to language]@bot.talk.google.com,' and all available combinations are listed in the table below.

To use a bot, add it to your Friends list and send it the message you want translated. For example, if you send "Hello" to en2es@bot.talk.google.com (English to Spanish), it will respond with "Hola." If you're using the Google Talk Gadget, you can also get your conversation translated by inviting a bot to a group chat with a friend.

You can send a chat to these bots to get your messages translated:
