Persian (Farsi) English translation now available on Google translate

Online machine translation from Persian into English and from English into Persian was launched yesterday (June 18, 2009) by Google. As we all know, machine translation is not perfect, but can be very useful. Persian-English translation is particularly relevant at present since many people wish to obtain information relating to the current political crisis in Iran.

The service has not yet been optimized for Persian into and from other languages available in Google translate, however, the Google translate team are apparently working on this.
