QQ International and Google translate
It is great to see that Chinesepod has become a link on QQ International.
This new version works much better than the old one, QQ has at last become very easy to use, and you can still get to the Chinese pages.
Another great improvement has occurred on Google translate it is now instant translation as you type, not always correct but very handy

I'm not entirely sure what the difference between QQ and QQ international is. Is QQ international the same app, but with menus etc. in English?
I've got QQ on my Ubuntu machine (there seems to be no QQ international for Linux) but haven't yet given it a try.
All the best,

Also, can someone say what this cooperation with Tencent really means? Is it just that there's a QQ ad on the ChinesePod page? Or is there some other kind of cooperation going on here?
(Judging by Tencent's reputation, I'm hoping the ad is all there is ...)

QQ once had malware issues, but as far as I know, it's been clean for a long time.
This is just a simple cross-promotional cooperation with Tencent: we tell our users about QQ International, they present CPod (Newbie) material within their program.
QQ International, besides being in English, also offers content that is targeted at foreigners (interested) in China. (That's the tabbed content.)
We'll be introducing this partnership officially soon.

Thanks for that feedback John..much appreciated.btw,I noticed the ad for CPod on QQ International almost straight away when I went on their site,so it seems like a good idea to me.

I've used QQ in the past, and would like to again, but am having some difficulties with their sign-up and security procedures. It seems that I can't recover my old number, that it won't recognize my email addresses for registry of a new number, and isn't displaying the captcha image for verification in the end anyway. Oh well.

QQ for it self its a messenger but it base business in china they way of work its that they allow you to comunicate for free but others things as avatar and profile gadgets etc they will charge for it.. the QQ international its the same QQ but with the capability of other languages i think they have also separated from the traditional QQ but i am not sure.
Also Ubunto runs on Unix -> Linux so if it runs there it might run in other versions also or at least you can try to find the tar.gz package ,,,,
about spam and all other like any other service i see many people trying to make spam by messages mails etc one thing i found on my girl friend computer its that for some reasons activate the antivirus so far in mine everything its perfect and i have the traditional one ....
best luck for all ..
