My understanding is that the program works by translating thousands of webpages into English and vice-versa. The process is timely, and when I was first accepted as one of the beta-testers, the program was restricted to strictly Spanish, French, and German. Right now, they have an English for Chinese Speakers program, and once that is completed, Mandarin and Cantonese for English Speakers will be rolled out. It's quite a smart program, and although I'd like to see more languages beyond the Eurocentric ones, its current array (especially French, German, and Spanish) are very well integrated.
