Ask Amy
Dear Amy: We're planning a trip to Spain, but with our poor Spanish, the travel sites are no help. What can I do?--George, Platte City, Mo.
Dear George: There are several free translation sites where you can type in a sentence in one language and it will interpret into another language. The machine interpreter on FreeTranslation.com at www.FreeTranslation.com does that too, but it has an additional feature. You can type in the URL (Web address) of a page and it will automatically translate all the text on the whole page. Don't expect it to be perfect, but it should be good enough to help. Have a great trip! (Disclaimer: This site now contains advertisements.)

Dear Amy: How can I find population statistics for different countries?--Tammy, New Haven, Conn.
Dear Tammy: The best place to find facts about countries is at the CIA Factbook at https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook. If you want to compare facts about any two countries, here's a flashy idea (you'll need the Flash plug-in). Check out Your Nation at www.your-nation.com. By selecting the countries and the type of facts, such as unemployment or the population, you will see a graphic comparing the two countries. It's cool.(The second site is no longer available.)
