google the translator

Was recently chatting with a group of friends about how language is the biggest fence for technology to jump over. Here, Google Goggles has found a way to scan a line of text taken in a photo and translate from German to English. So it appears that the Android is now a mobile translator. Would be great if the Droid could not only translate, but pick out key words in that translation and provide links to related content. Example: in this video, it could link to wikipedia page on herbs or to a page of recipes using similar ingredients.

One day.
