Google Adds Chat to Translator Toolkit

While machine-generated translation is a worthwhile goal, it's not always perfect. Google is attempting to make up for the gap by adding chat to its Translator Toolkit.

The chat works like IM in Gmail. You can type messages to your contacts and groups directly from Translator Toolkit regarding questions you may have about a translation issue.

If you're not interested in using chat, you can turn it off in the Translator Toolkit settings.
