Google Translate

I was looking through our server logs and saw a referral from translate.google.com . I didn't recall hearing or seeing this but a quick technorati search shows some activity around this URL. The reason that this is important to me is that it spells the death of my use of Altavista. Actually that isn't entirely correct, it spells the death of my navigation to Altavista to get to that Babelfish link whenever I need to translate a website or an email. Does anyone use Altavista anymore? I am done. I am curious why the translate stuff isn't obvious anywhere on the Google directories, or at least not where I could find it.

Yahoo just announced that they've upgraded Babel Fish. Doesn't look like they've done much other than adding Chinese and moving to a yahoo.com subdomain.
