You may get a free copy of De-babbler by teleporting to this SL slurl:
Several times I have encountered avatars who come from other countries. For instance, I met Asyu Allen who lives in Kyoto. I noticed that while he was typing in Japanese, I was seeing an English translation. I asked him about it, but he could not explain what was happening.
Here is the description:
“..is a Second Life object that instantly translates back and fourth between English, German, French, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese. So now, in Second Life, you can easily communicate with people who you’d have a hard time talking to in first life. Think about the implications for education! There’s a whole new world of communication and collaboration.”
After you teleport to “Green Island,” right click on the tall cylindrically shaped object. It is labeled “Babbler & Debabbler”.
Next, select touch. You will receive a pop-up asking if you wish to receive…. Select OK
If you are given a choice, select Debabbler instead of Babbler.
“The Babbler required the speaker to choose a native language and a language for their chat to be translated to. The De-Babbler (which is still in testing) allows the listener to choose a person in the vicinity and receive a translated version of their chat. This seems like a nice advance, since it means you no longer have to give someone a HUD and teach them how to use it — in a foreign language — before you can converse.”
