Search engines enhanced with auto-translation in search results

More evidence that an auto-feed translation tool merits attention.

Foreign language search engine made me think, "Why not have a search engine that searches in any language, and provides the results back in your native language."

Right now, the searches are simply "grabbing similar fonts." A good search engine will:

  • A. take what you have [your language input];
  • B. translate it into any language;
  • C. Conduct the search;
  • D. Find results,
  • E. Translate the results into your native language;
  • F. Provide the results back to you.

    Right now, the language-searches are "translate this one at a time."

    Imagine what happens when you have multiple feeds with different languages coming in. Ref
