The Google Translate Widget

Want to allow your posts to be read by readers who don't speak your language? No problem! Just install this Google Translate Widget on your blog and the translation service will come by automatically!

By choosing a language on the list, Google Translate will dutifully translate your blog posts into that language. If you are not satisfied with the translation quality, you can always contribute a better translation by clicking on the faulty sentence and when a pop up box appears, type in a more accurate translation.

As a netizen who has benefitted enormously from the selfless contribution of other netizens, it's time for me to give back to the community by suggesting a better translation.

Granted, the machine translation technology is still very crude, but hopefully as it matures, one day we can read any contents on the Word Wide Web, even though they are written in the languages that we are not familar with. 

So, what are you waiting for? Just do the World Wide Web a service and download the widget onto your blog and let your readers read your posts in any language they want and contribute better, more accurate translation!
