    Hey, Bing translation is not so sound. I tried to translate from German to English, results are sometimes good, sometimes bad. So please do really develop it as an 'Excellent Web Translator'.

    I like Bing and have high expectations. But let's not fool ourselves the maps, especially on mobile devices is a little lacking. Finding a restaurant on another popular search (which remain nameless) will bring up more options.

    keep at it…we are cheering you on!

    If Bing could create a "document" search engine that searches for academic papers, scribd posts, and public domain books, that'd be awesome!  Good Luck Bing!

    This translation tool has been long-awaited. I just hope Microsoft will break barriers with Bing.

    Translation is neat but not quite there. Further it misses some basic semantic needs of the user. It behaves more like a programming construct. Eg Translate I Love You  Spanish or translate I love you  for spanish or possible inputs and these do not result into any meaningful results.

    Some of the other team blogs are dead links, e.g. the Microsoft advertising blogs.  Delete or fix?

    It's good that Bing contain the translation feature so that users do not change page and keep searching faster.

    Ok, the Bing Translator is cool, but needs some work. I used it for a Spanish: Year 2 project; it was a get help quick help. It worked and got me a C-. The only thing is is it didn't completely translate everything I needed. So it worked, to an extent.
