Google Translator VS Microsoft Translator

Finally,I have create another Silverlight application, which allow me to use the Google Language API and Microsoft Translator API together. So that we can compare which translator do better job.

In my opinion, Google Translate is a lot more powerful than Microsoft Translator, as the Google Translate can translate a lot more language then Microsoft one. On the other hand, Google Translate has ability to detect the input language, which is more convenient.

If you try to translate “bill gate” [All in lowercase] but using the application below, you will realise the different between two translator.

I would be grateful, if you could give me some suggestion on how to make this mini application better.
