A simple one word language translator that uses machine translation. Developed at Translation Services USA using the Microsoft Bing machine translation API, formerly using the google API until they started charing for it. This plugin is provided free of charge. Translating more than one word is possible with this plugin although not recomended due to the size of the of the input and result text area boxes.

not bad, but!

Hey, author.

This is:

#flags { text-align:right; width:150px; float:right; clear:right; }

inside in PHP is very bad idea! U understand, I think? CSS inside PHP is BAD for change width, for example, to 200px. Next upgrade will remove this and put again 150px.
