Instant messaging and babelfish

I have two quick questions:

  1. has anyone developed ruby libraries for an instant messaging client
    (something like Jabber?)
  2. If so, has anyone tried using the ruby babelfish libraries in an
    instant messaging client?

It sure would be nice to be able to use IM and have it translate on
the fly.

Thanks,

Damien

Yes I have (a Jabber library).

See: http://www.infoether.com/ruby/jabber4r/index.htm

It should be easy enough to wrap babelfish and use this library to
create a IM service.

Rich
