Very nice.  It really shows how joining two good things together can
make them even better.

Three minor suggestions although as this is just a proof I understand
if you don't want to deal with them:
(i) it looks as though you are allowing partial match on the
translated search term (thus "love" matches 'glove' and 'plover')
(ii) I think it would be nice 8and easy)  to allow people to chose the
input language
(iii) I see you sent us the code (in another thread).  Could I
encourage you to add a license, so we know what we can use it for?
