Google's Farsi/English translation service

by Humility

For the last several days, people have been pressuring Google to make their homepage logo green for a day in a show of solidarity. They've decided to do something far more significant.

Google has launched a Farsi/English translation service (Persian ALPHA) , an ingenious way to help Iranians and English speakers exchange information and aid each other more effectively (listed on the pull-down menus for translation; not yet listed on the generic "Language Available" list .. It Works!). This is a guide on how to help. Also, if you add a translation bookmark to your browser to translate sites, without having to return to Google.

Add this new capability to their Iran coverage on Citizen Tube, and their decision to relax standards on graphic videos for the scenes coming out of Iran, and they deserve some serious props.
