GTranslate: a widget for automatic translation

290711045_020a5e262a_m

Today we see up close one of the most automatisms that I have made my life easier on the web. Many of us know the "Language Tools" offered by Google, but not everyone knows that it is possible integrate the buttons "flag" on its own site to make a machine translation, snapshot of all the content without changing the address in the URL bar. I'm talking about GTranslate, a book which deals with the instant translation of all the content that is on a page; and an example you can see it by clicking on the flags in the right column, at the top of this site. In this case, the library is integrated in a a WordPress plugin (the motor that "turn" this blog), but you can use it with any website, even with static HTML pages.
