Along with the rapid development of Internet technologies, the instant messaging has become nowadays an important medium for a huge number of people to communicate with friends, family, and even colleagues while working. People who come from different corner of the world speak different native-languages. Even if the instant messaging technology is now so developed, there is a barrier to communication for people having different native-languages. This study tries to let people easily chat without having to be familiar with the others' native-language by integrating "instant messaging" and "machine translation" technologies. This shall overcome the language barrier to communication. Furthermore, with proper design, this mechanism can also facilitate conversation practice.
