“This new Guinness World Records title reflects the significant reach and popularity of Babylon’s translation services. It is a major achievement for Babylon and comes hot on the heels of recent records for Firefox, Facebook and Ustream. We’ve seen Firefox 3.0 gain the title for Most downloads of a software application in 24 hours, Facebook reclaim the Most likes on a Facebook page title and Ustream named as the online service ingesting the most video content. After the tallest and shortest people in the world, digital records are now the ones that we get most enquiries about and it’s clear that the importance of these records will continue to grow and grow.”
