I present Google SMS (Beta).

Google SMS (Beta) offers great features. Helpful features. Features absolutely perfect for Student 2.0. With a simple “translate apartment in german” sent to 46645 (or GOOGL), Google SMS (Beta) will hit you back with:

“Google Translation:
‘apartment’ in English means ‘Wohnung’ in German.”

After spending a semester in Berlin, Germany, studying at the Freie Universitaet, I concur. How sweet is that! Not just limited to translation, though, Google SMS (Beta) also offers a glossary, a calculator, currency conversion, and even your local movie listings.

Check out all the options.
