刚来中文角看了下。。只能说的是 心里真的非常非常的惊讶 中文角的朋友基本上都说着非常地道的中文 除了可能措词稍微 正式 拘泥了些以外其实和我们自己说的中文区别也不大 读起来也非常的流畅 很多粗略看下我基本看不出是不是国人写的 更厉害的是看到还有会些古文的 hoho 要知道这东西就算在中国也不见得有多少人懂

You also get pinyin pop-ups if you want them - they're functional, seem to be loaded via AJAX so a little slow. Dictionary function doesn't appear to be working yet. I think a lot of its value will depend on the quality of the dictionary.

In all honesty, I'm not seeing any advantage over copying and pasting your email into a web translation service. Does have a rather nifty online IME though.
