Just found that the German for environment is Umwelt after getting a mail from MS Germany on the launch of their new environment site www.microsoft.com/umwelt!

Kinda cool word I thought but the domain name is already taken;)!

But better than that was the BING Translator at www.microsoftranslator.com that I discovered when doing a search for translation tools:)!!

All they need to do is embed the Microsoft Translator Widget in their site and I’ll be able to read the articles too:)!

“Ist dass ein Banane. Nein dass ist eine frau!” – sum total of my German education I’m sorry to say (after 1 week of lessons before realising I was meant to be doing a Rural Studies course instead!).
