Just two days ago I was talking to an ESOL teacher in my school who had no idea about online translators. I have a number of ESOL kids in my classes and use the translators for essay writing. My thought is that if I am trying to teach the mechanics of essay writing, then I don't want language to be the barrier. So the kids write in their native language and then run it through the translator before turning it into me. Here is the one I have been using from Google and here is the new "Nice Translator." Thanks to a G+ post from Larry Ferlazzo.
