Hangout Pro tip
Use Google translate's nifty "Listen" feature to communicate with people speaking other languages in Hangouts. http://translate.google.com/

Back Story
Last night, I was in a Hangout with +Al Chang , +Jordan Clymer +Erik Assmus and +Dean Torn , when I said:

What the hell, let's take this baby Public and see who shows up. I dropped the Public chip in the Invite box, and we waited.

+Wang Feng had the courage to join shortly thereafter, and lurked. Then he typed something in Chinese into the Chat box, which I used Google Translate to, well, translate.

Then I used the Google Translate Listen button to quickly render in Chinese the funnier bits of conversation for +Wang Feng. My laptop speakers transmitted the conversation to the Hangout loud-and-clear.

I now want a Translate widget for Hangouts! +Mike LeBeau

Oh yeah, then the unstoppable +Brian Behlendorf showed up video-only.

Anyone want to give Translate a try and report back?
