If anyone is interested, I have a small contribution I wrote a while back (http://softprops.github.com/bird-speak/). It's a bookmarklet that reads the lang attribute of the html tag on twitter.com and asks googles translate api to translate all of the tweets on the current page into that language. Its probably not that helpful for all those not actually using the web ui, but for those interested, its up on the githubs (http://github.com/softprops/bird-speak/blob/master/).
