Yahoo Starts Up Yahoo Babelfish

Ah, Babelfish, how I love thee. Even when Altavista was plucking every last nerve I had, Babelfish remained an awesome translating tool. Now Yahoo has taken Babelfish from the AltaVista franchise and created Yahoo Babelfish, as they explain in a Yahoo Search blog post. Yahoo Babelfish is available at http://babelfish.yahoo.com/.

According to the blog post, it's the same old groovy Babelfish with a couple of changes. First is a new pair of translation options (Simplified Chinese into Traditional Chinese and vice-versa) and a new option called Yahoo! Search Translator Beta, available only in Germany and France, which allows users to translate queries and search across materials in several languages simultaneously. (There also seems to be a new logo that looks like a cousin to a Goldfish cracker.)

Rather oddly the blog entry for the Babelfish also includes a recipe for a mixed drink called "The Babbling Fish". Considering that it's got vodka AND Midori AND champagne in it, perhaps they should have called it "The Giggling Human". I'm sure with one of these under your belt the occasional idiosyncrasies of machine translation will seem more hysterical than annoying.
