Google has just launched a very useful support tool for anyone who do translations in an “amateur” and occasional way: Google Translator Toolkit. This online tool will allow us to translate texts from one language to another with an initial translation and permanent support from all current Google translation tools. As you can see in the screenshot, it is based on two panels (original text / translation in progress), and adds Google Docs features such as collaborative editing.
Undoubtedly the most interesting of this conglomerate proposal of existing services, is the seamless integration with Wikipedia articles. It also does it with Google Knol and with any other web page, although of course we can translate our own texts in the usual formats (.doc, .html, .odt, .rtf, .txt).

Little more to add, apart from the database of previous translations from which you get the necessary “knowledge”, and the possibility of indicating a custom glossary for when we do domain / topic specific translations. So I leave you with this new Google toy, but remember to come back to leave your opinion expressed in the comments.
