Looks like Microsoft coveted their neighbor's translation service.
After Babel Fish and Google Translate (beta, of course - because no Google service is complete without the word "beta" in its name), Microsoft today launched Live Translator (also "beta").

These sites allow you to translate words, sentences or even full web pages from or to English. The Microsoft site attempts to yield better translation for computer-related content.

The title of this post means "Live" in Spanish - which I can't really say for the Microsoft site - as of 10:30 PM PST, it returns a "500 Server Error" for every request. Oh well, guess sometimes the "beta" tag is justified :).
