Translate feeds on the Fly.

Google Reader Blog says 

Next time you find an interesting feed in another language, just subscribe to it as normal in Reader. When you view the feed in Reader, check off “Translate into my language” in the feed settings, and (voila!) the feed will be immediately translated for you. Also, this setting will be saved so you can always view this feed in your own language.

This is an interesting collaboration between Google Reader and Google Translate. So next time, you dont have to bother about the language issues while subsribing to a foriegn language blog. Get the reader dude !!!

Shared by me on Google Reader

To enable this, drag the link Bookmarklet for sharing notes in reader (Click here) to your browser toolbar.

This also allows you to share any content from any web page, even if the site doesn’t have a feed. For even more control over what gets shared, select some text from the page before clicking the “Note in Reader” bookmarklet and your selection will appear as the item’s body. There’s also a space for you to add an editorial note when you need to let your friends know why you are sharing something. You can always uncheck “Add to shared items” if you want to add something to Reader without also adding it to your shared items.

The above displayed items are shared from Technofriends feed.
