Kindle tip - translating words

Some Kindles now have a Translation function! If you are reading a book with foreign language dialogue, you can now translate it. 

Translate Text Using Instant Translations

More info at 

While reading, you can select text and then use Instant translations to translate the text to a different language.
Press and drag to highlight the text you want to translate. In the pop-up menu, tap More, tap Translation, and then select the language to translate the selection into.

This uses Bing Translator, and will prompt you to turn on your wifi/ 3G. It will auto even auto detect the language of the text. Outlander fans - no Gaelic, I am afraid!
