Google Translation

The Google Blog announces they've recently added seven languages to Google Translate. I was actually aware Hungarian was one of their options, as I utilized it 3 weeks ago, though I wasn't aware it was a recent addition. They're up to 41 different languages. Significantly more than Yahoo's Babelfish, which has only 13.

I think this is the most helpful job ever. However, I am a bit upset not to see my language (Khmer of Cambodia) listed. I would strongly suggest google to help add my language with more than 14 million speakers around the world into your list. I will provide you with everything needed to do this.

My Cambodian and I would be proud of your work and seeing our language on your list. I hope you will help this poor country grow.

Best Regards,

I'm sorry, but I have no connection with Google whatsoever, so I am unable to make any suggestions.
