Translater included with Home.

I got a cool idea.  Maybe I'm not the first one to come up with it.  I read somewhere that different regions would have their own Home lobby tailored to their region.  However, they mentioned it wouldn't be that difficult to visit another region (a lot like we do with the PS Store).  However, if I were to visit a Japanese lobby, I wouldn't be able to converse with them due to the language barrier.  Wouldn't it be cool if a Japanese person typed something toward me (while I was in their regional lobby), Home would immediately translate it into English so I could hold a conversation with them.  I think this will educate people about diveristy and different cultures.  Of course to step it up a notch, you would attempt this feature with voice also.

It would basically have to use pre-set messages like Ridge Racer 7 uses. Not a very good way to communicate but it would be sufficient for game invites..

The Auto-Translator in FFXI worked pretty well. But even that was set phrases and words. I think that's how the set phrases work in Home. If you choose one of the pre programed sentences it will show up on the other users' screen in thier language.
 
Can someone from the Beta confirm this?
