I found this cool tool from Google "The Google Translate Web Element"

By adding a small snip-it of code to your website, all the text (or only part of the text) on your website can be translated into almost any language insistently

Code:
<script>
function googleTranslateElementInit() {
  new google.translate.TranslateElement({
    pageLanguage: 'en',
    autoDisplay: false,
    floatPosition: google.translate.TranslateElement.FloatPosition.TOP_RIGHT
  });
}
</script><script src="//translate.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>

make your own  Google Translate Web Element at http://translate.google.com/translate_tools

come see what the end result looks like at http://www.thebitcoinreview.com/  click the "Translate" button at the top right corner.

Wow, that will be useful.

Bitcoin is a universal currency.  Well, stated more correctly, it is a protocol that doesn't have any concept of nationality or language even (except for some message syntax).


So it is already being used around the globe:

 - http://www.weusecoins.com/globe/




 - http://bitcoinstatus.rowit.co.uk/


But there is so much further to go:

 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_number_of_native_speakers


So this translate tool can help broaden and extend bitcoin's reach.

And we are seeing proof that Bitcoin is reaching further and further.  For instance, recently launched were exchanges in Sweden and the Philippines. BitInstant is nearing the launch of their product for serving the UK, Brazil, Russia and more.

Being able to serve many languages from a single source is an innovation that will help bitcoin reach where "bitcoin" is a word they might never even have heard of yet.
