A few days ago, I put a Translate This Page tool on each individual article page, just above the comments. Traffic shows it’s getting used a few times each day, so it’s a good addition.
I’m not sure if the translation is always accurate (there’s some English-speaking folks who still don’t understand what I’m trying to say), but as Valeria Maltoni writes – translation is more about heart than head.
In Lorelle Van Fossum’s Problogger guest entry, Lorelle points out that ‘instant web translation isn’t yet ready for prime time.’ But I sure hope it gets here quick. I use the Google toolbar translation tool quite a bit when reading blogs in a language I’m not familiar with.
Big hat tip to Frank Gruber at SomewhatFrank on the use of a translation tool for each post.
