18Description
19===========
20
21This plugin lets you select, on a per-user basis, the translator you want
22to use. It defaults to None. It has different servers you can use, and
23it lists their strengths and limits with each one. Also, there are
24multiple servers just in case one changes their interface or goes down.
25
26Since SquirrelMail is designed to have multiple translations of the text,
27this plugin takes your preference and will use it for selecting what to
28translate the text into.
