DOWNLOAD: Language Translator plug-in for MSN Messenger

Ever wanted to talk to someone else via Instant Messaging in a foreign language?

The Made In Express contest is a contest that invites developers worldwide to write something up in Visual Studio Express for prizes and awards.  A developer in Pakistan has produced a pretty neat plug in for MSN Messenger that enables people to communicate with each other by translating the text back and forth between each person in the language that he or she understands.

The download point contains both the source code as well as the executable which of course requires the .NET 2.0 Framework to be installed on your machine.

There are 11 other cool projects up there using the .NET platform, including a poker bot, robot, mood-based DJ, and more.  There is a community choice award and the website (www.madeinexpress.com) is currently taking votes from the public.
