The photograph in the masthead above was taken by me in Gimli, New Iceland, Manitoba on Friday, November 4, 2016 New Iceland, Manitoba.

Google Translate

As at December 9, 2016 the Google Translate application is for Windows based systems and Bing, Explorer, Google, Mozilla Firefox, indeed, most all search engines. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch updated to iOS 7.0+. It accepts voice input for 15 languages and allows translation of a word or phrase into one of more than 50 languages. Translations can be spoken out loud in 23 different languages. With a little volunteer help, I am sure Google would add any number of North American First Nations languages.

Albeit, it seems to have trouble with alliterate, poetic and prose in Icelandic.
