All I had to do is to click in the "Translate" button and the URL was updated. The instant translation doesn't update the URL.

There's no way to control talking speed in the Translate site (and you're right, it does speak pretty fast in French), nor is there any provision for it in the Google Translate API. (For the record, this is true for 10/11/11, so please, don't deduct points from this 2 years from now if/when Google starts providing speech controls :))

First of all, I recommend you to start with clearing your Google cookies, since I think it can be that Google stores your language in a cookie as well. After your did that, head over to https://www.google.com/settings/language and select your language. Normally all Google services should be in that language by default then, but I know of some that manage ...

This is just an educated guess, but I believe it has to do with the fact that Google Translate is based on machine-translation AI, that gets better with user interaction, so the more users “correct” it to “China” (or, for that matter, translate it to China on many, many, many web sites across the web), the more it will automatically (due to statistics) ...

You can't do that by translating the page through the Google Translate, because you're running inside an iframe, so it's basically works only for public pages that doesn't require login.

Using "thou" sometimes helps, and so does "you all", but there is no foolproof way to get the correct form. Google translate is based on statistical inference (not structural parsing / substitution), so the vous/tu usage is inconsistent. you are very pretty -> tu es très jolie you are very nice -> vous êtes très belle I can only speculate ...

Hit the [Translate] button above the "right window". ;) When you paste (or edit) a larger block of text Google does not seem to translate it instantly (on-the-fly), but instead waits until you have entered all the text you want translated. So you need to manually hit the [Translate] button. Probably because translation is computationally expensive. ...

As far as I know, this cannot be done. According to Wikipedia, when you translate language A to language B, Google's procedure generally is: Translate language A to English. (This is redundant if A is English, but technically still true.) Translate English to language B. (Same note as above.) (I cannot find documentation for this on Google itself, but ...
