MeGlobe allows people with different first languages to chat with each other without having to worry about making the translation from their language to their fellow chatter’s. Translations from one language to the next are made in real time, so that you can be on the same page despite not speaking the same tongue.
The site works so that users can help to fine-tune the switch from language to language while they are speaking. If a translation is a little off, the native speaker can edit what has been said, helping to create a better service for other users of the site and showing their chat partner the changes as soon as they are made. MeGlobe is browser based, so you don’t have to download any software in order to enjoy it. Just have the person you want to chat with join the site, and as long as you can communicate that on your own, you’re good to go.

Why MeGlobe.com It Might Be A Killer
Automatic, real time translations for chat are definitely useful as the world becomes smaller and smaller and more globally connected. Not having to worry if what you are saying is accurate and that you’re getting your point across is definitely a stress reliever when you don’t have someone to help translate around. Because native speakers will help to improve the technicalities of the translations, the site will become more and more useful and accurate with time, not completely reliant or grammatically correct and limited dictionaries.
