I have installed a new widget in my sidebar! It uses Google's Translation Services and converts the whole page into the desired language. I have this fantastic blog to thank for my new gadget.
I spent about 10 minutes "googling" a widget to put on my blog and this was one of the best that I found to translate the whole page without having to copy and paste the text over to a translation page.
Two reasons I have installed this translator are:
- The State of The Live Web, April 2007 report showed that only 36% (down from 39%) of all blogs are in English - Japanese is currently the top blogging language @ 37% (click to enlarge graphic)
- I stumbled upon a link to my site on this blog in some foreign language (maybe Spanish?) and thought it only polite!
... go on, try the translator for a laugh... you know you want to! :)
PS: If you haven't already read it I suggest you read the State of the Live Web (April 2007) report here.
