    Milford - United Way of Pike County has become one of the leaders in joining people together in a united way, evidenced by the addition of multi-lingual capabilities to its Web site and to the on-line human services directory, PikePaHelp.org. Now, these Web sites can be read in nine different languages including Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Korean, Chinese and Japanese. Alta Vista’s “Babel Fish,” is the software that makes this one-click translation to these other languages possible. Other organizations can also add this free feature to their Web sites by visiting this link - http://www.altavista.com/help/free/free_searchbox_transl. United Way of Pike County Information and Referral chairperson Bob Veneziale said, “I have often thought about how to better serve those that don’t speak English or don’t speak it well enough. We are very excited about implementing this wonderful communication tool. This will allow our referral sources and their clients to access very important information from child care to welfare.” Visit www.unitedwaypike.org or www.PikePaHelp.org to try the Babel Fish translation service.
