Google adds people into the equation

Google has launched a tool set for aiding the mass translation of documents. Called Google Translator Kit (Techcrunch review here) it adds a human dimension to the already pretty awesome computerised translation available for free among other things through Gmail. In a nutshell the Translator Kit allow people to upload a document (or add a URL) and then in a pane it displays the original, the machine translated version and a search results list showing exact or partial matches to particular phrases from the search index. This way would-be translators can improve on the translation and upload again. Brilliant!
