Windows Live Messenger Translation TBot

This is a very cool feature that I’ve started to use. It’s called Tbot and it will translate whatever you type into a Windows Live Messenger conversation. All you have to do is add the bot (mtbot@hotmail.com) to your messenger contacts and then start typing. Tbot will translate what you write almost instantly.

Description from Microsoft: “Tbot is an automated buddy that provides translations for Windows Live Messenger. It was first launched in 2008 as a prototype and has since become immensely popular. You can have one-on-one conversations with Tbot or invite friends who speak different languages with Tbot translating for you.
Simply add mtbot@hotmail.com to your Messenger contacts. Simply add mtbot@hotmail.com to your Messenger contacts. ”
