[Suggestion] A little flag on the "thread" page indicating the "first post/preferred thread language" that when you click you can get the entire threa
Google translate it is not perfect, but it is quite useful and I assume could be used "freely".
It would be great if I could decide to read a thread that was written in German (that I don't have any clue) and click on little indicator on the top of the page to select a language that I can understand and then using google translate or some other tool the thread would be automatically translated.
I think it would help avoid too much fragmentation. If this work we could even try something like an automatic translation when posting to that thread (as long as we also keep the original version too).
It doesn't look great but is better than not having a clue and I imagine the Trolls can make it work much better ... Maybe just translate the posts and not the rest of the interface.
Maybe a link to the google translate. Google translate is good, but don't translate good all technic words.
Chrome has this working pretty well if it detects a page in another language, not so much in the other browsers.

That would be really cool. I don't use Chrome and, of course, like the idea of features that don't depend on the browser. One person may use different browsers on the desktop, on the phone, on the netbook and is great to have a single experience as much as possible.
Yes, for the other browser can install a google toolbar, but i don't want install any toolbar and maybe other user don't want this. For me is useful have this features inside the page without any program or toolbar.

I don't like "extra" toolbars either and some browsers will not support them...
