    How about putting a link to http://world.altavista.com for those who don't understand english very well? It's pretty useful and it doesn't seem to be known by many people around here, I think.

    The spell checker is good, but what happens if the guy only understands french or german or other language than english?

    A link like:
    ▄bersetzen Sie zu Englisch.

    or

    Traduisez Ó l'anglais.

    to http://world.altavista.com

    What do you think? It was good once when a german guy appeard speaking... german.

    Sounds like a good idea to me, but english is my native tongue.

    Although, i think a lot of people would get upset and it would clutter the forum to get a bunch of posts in different languages. Having a link to a translator would just encourage that.

    well, for all those non-english folks..try the
    New Google Translation Service...


    For Example to browse the VB-world in french .. (kind of Proxy service)
    Try this..

    http://translate.google.com/translat....vbforums.com/

    The only problem though is that even the member names are chnaged to french !

    The Google translator is much better than the Altavista one, language-wise, but the AltaVista one preserves frames & tables much better. I prefer google.
    All contents of the above post that aren't somebody elses are mine, not the property of some media corporation.
    (Just a heads-up)

    man, i wonder why they keep it so hidden? Seems like they could get a lot of visitors off of it!
