NEW! Search Web Sites in Another Language on Google Translate

Google has launched a new feature on Google Translate
that allows you to run a search in English to locate
(and translate) websites in another language.

For example, if I wanted to identify Portuguese
language sources on human rights in Brazil:

My search: "human rights" Brazil
My language: English
Find results in: Portuguese

I would retrieve Portuguese search results and a
(machine) translation of these search results into
English. The translations are not always pristine,
but provide enough information to determine the
site's relevance or potential research value.
