Google has begun experimenting with a new cross-language ability for its Search Appliance , a server customers can use to power their in-house search service.

"Many of our enterprise search customers have dozens of offices all over the world with tens of millions documents indexed in a host of different languages," said Cyrus Mistry, Google's enterprise product manager, in a blog post Thursday. "Cross-Language Enterprise Search instantly translates your Google Search Appliance query from one language to one or more other languages using Google's best-in-class translation engine."

Existing customers can try the feature by downloading it through Google Enterprise Labs.

Google has been toiling away on computer translation technology , part of its mission to bring more information to more people.
