This file uses MATLAB(R)'s web services with Google's AJAX Language Translation API to take one string and translate it to anther:
For example to translate a string to Sweedish:

>> gtranslate('Good morning Mr. Peterson, how is your cat?','sv')

ans =

God morgon Mr Peterson, hur är din katt?

You can specify source (default is English) and destination languages using the two-letter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_639-1 codes.

Note that the default character encoding may make some languages (Russian, Japanese, etc) unrenderable.

@Yuri, @hanan,

 I believe this a limitation of the font that is only able to show latin characters. I am not sure how to change the font for GUI controls.
