Google Translate & IDNs

I have just discovered that Google Translate recognises IDNs. Not only that - In addition to the translation it displays a live link offering translation

Try this - Set up Google translate for Chinese to English then copy 建材资讯.中国 and paste into Google translate

or click http://translate.google.com/#zh-CN|en|建材资讯.中国

I have not yet tried IDNs in other languages.

I do not know when this feature was implemented. I discovered it accidentally whilst using Google for translation.

Re: Google Translate & IDNs

Do they still translate english hostnames inside text to non-existent IDN equivalents?

That's pretty funny.
