The next generation of translation gadgets are here: smart phones enabled by Google Translate. You can see how it’s effectively used by Okamoto’s in their rock video, Lagoon. (Wow they sound good too).
Anybody use this yet?

Google Translate has some limitations, in that the app can only effectively translate one to two-word phrases. Hmmn, very interesting.
