Google translate can be used to open blocked orkut.

We can use Google Translator or Google LanguageTools to access restricted sites.

Here’s what you need to do.

Visit Google Translator and there you see under Translate 2 types of translations are mentioned in or.
1.text translator which u ignore just after or there is a website translator. Just write the website name(obviously the blocked site you want to visit) at the text box just bellow the text ” Translate a web page:“. In the language selector box select “French to English” or any language to english or English to English if you still want the site to be in english and then click on translate. Now the intended page in english will appear as if inside google translator not the actual webpage so now we indirectly accesed blocked site as this translator site which is unblocked acts as a proxy. Trick here is that the site intended is in english but we need to translate it to english b’coz we need the translator site act as proxy so we used French 2 English in that translator.

The output link was like http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http:/puzzlehacker.wordpress.com&langpair=fr|en which was from french to english as indicated by “langpair=fr|en” and the site mentioned after “u=” in the o/p link is the site intended which is http:/puzzlehacker.wordpress.com here. If we do from english to english we’ve to write “langpair=en|en” and if we intend to view blocked site orkut.com then u=http://orkut.com resulting in total link

http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http://orkut.com&langpair=en|en which can be used directly without visiting the translator sites. Due to this google translator is some times said as Google Proxy.

Other translator sites such as Babel Fish Translation Free translation Language Translation can be used to translate from english to english or from other language to english.


Trick 1

I learned this by experience….

You have an Orkut account and a gmail account….Which account will you open first?

Most probably gmail.

But I would open orkut first then only gmail.why?

Because logging into orkut automatically opens gmail.

So if you have logged into orkut,Just type in gmail on a new window,your gmail account opens up!

Trick 2

You have the following accounts to log in to,which one will you select




Option 1>Gmail opens gmail only

Option 2>orkut>Opens orkut and Gmail

Option 3>Google>Opens google,orkut,gmail, google  page builder,notebook,…..so on..

So the best Option is Logging into Google account …


How to use Google as a dictionary: Just type define followed by the word or idiomatic expression you’re looking for eg. define skimp or define fly off the handle
How to use Google as a calculating machine: Just type 249+987 or 512-347 or 47*62 (for multiplication) or 40/2.5 (for division) and hit the Enter key (you don’t have to type the = sign). I even found out that 140 sq. ft. (which I read in a room ad) is equal to 13 square meters by simply typing 140 sq ft
