Babelfish Language Translation Service
By Gerry Bay

Collecting and restoring music boxes, orchestrions, etc. is truly an
international activity.  From time to time, you may have the need to
communicate with someone in a language other than your own.  Few of
us are fluent in many languages so it can become a real problem.
Fortunately there is a web site that allows you to translate from one
language to another.  The link is
http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/tr

I recently purchased a musical box from a fine gentlemen in
Switzerland.  His English was not all that good and my French was
worse.  By using this site, we communicated quite well and had an
excellent transaction.  Perhaps some of you may also find it helpful
in your international dealings.
