Those of you with 'click here to translate' links to Babel fish should take a minute to click on your links. Alta is now requiring referring strings that originate within Altavista. You can't hot link 'translate' links any longer.

You can hotlink direct to the Go Translator (actually a better translator from what I have seen) at Infoseek/go.com.
