Don’t Speak English? StarsFeed Translates Celebrity Tweets So You Don’t Have To
Fan of Lady Gaga or John Legend but can’t make out what on earth they’re babbling about on Twitter due to your lackluster knowledge of the English tongue? Check out StarsFeed.com, a new site launched by Finnish startup XIHA.
The site features a directory of celebrities, and when you go to one of their profiles (e.g. Ashton Kutcher), you’ll see his latest tweets and bio in English. Change your language – since it was built using Google’s Translate API, there are about 50 to choose from – and you’ll see a “translate” option that allows you to quickly see them in your native language.
Granted, this is a just a tad gimmicky, and there are plenty of browser add-ons that make this even easier, but for the Finnish startup it is just another way to showcase its multilingual social network, dubbed XIHA Life.
