If you need to send a document to your clients in Spain, but your Spanish is beyond broken, you are going to need help. Google understands that, and to solve the your problem has just rolled out native translations inside of Google Docs.

You can translate into 53 different languages, from Afrikaans to Yiddish, all with just a few clicks of your mouse in your current Google documents. Once you execute a translation, Google will give you the option of saving the translation in a new document, or to replace the original with the new translation.

The tool is live now, and is exceptionally fast. Are the translations perfect? Of course not, but for a quick and dirty translation Google is busting down the barriers between languages for everyone. What are you waiting for, go translate your English into three different languages and then back to English and see what you get!
