When you publish your blog, it is available to a global audience. This means that people from different countries and regions will come to your blog through search engines or various other ways. With a global audience, your first language may not be your readers’ first language.
Until now, there weren’t a lot of options out there for translating your website. Google has come up with a great tool for webmasters and bloggers called the “Google Translator Widget.” This will translate your blog into 50 different languages.
Google Translator Widget
Google’s new tool allows readers to translate your website on the page. They don’t have to go to another tool to get the translation. This widget will prompt readers to view the blog or website in their own language, so they can feel comfortable to explore your site or blog. For instance, let’s guess a Chinese person has dropped into your website that has the widget installed. She will be prompted to translate the entire page to Chinese.The region/country of the visitor is determined by the settings of the browser they use to visit your site. Now, if the person chooses to translate the entire page, all they need to do is click on the translate button. The website will automatically be translated into their preferred language; just as shown below.
How to Implement on My Site?
Go to the Google Translator widget’s page and copy the given code. You may want to check the settings before you copy the code, but you don’t have to. Once copied, go to your website’s sidebar widget options or the Header.php file. Place the code wherever you want the translator option to be shown.
Once the widget is successfully placed, visitors of your blog or website will either be automatically prompted to translate the language, or they will see a drop-down menu of 50 different languages to translate into. Go and grab the Google’s new tool “Website Translator Widget” and make your website or blog available in 50 languages worldwide!
