Google Russian Translator

Google Translate added a new language: Russian. Now you can translate text from English to Russian or from Russian to English. Google uses its statistical machine translation system that won many prizes.

Google News Russia has also been launched. The site aggregates 400 news sources. By combining the two services you can get an English version of Google News Russia. As you can see, the translation is not quite perfect.

In a presentation earlier this year, Google recognized that Russia is fast-growing internet market and it intends to launch more products in Russian. The most popular search engine in Russia is Yandex, that has twice the market share of Google.

Colorless green ideas sleep furiously
