New social network users can leap language barrier

A Costa Rican engineer has launched a social network that allows users to converse with persons who speak another language.

Rather than being just another translator device, the network  My Babilon allows users to sign up and create a profile. Their text can be translated into the native language of whomever reads it.

The investor is Diego Garro, who presented the effort to President Laura Chinchilla Miranda Tuesday. She signed up and created a profile.

The president and others expressed their pleasure that this system was created by a Costa Rica. The home page isHERE!
