Translate Button: Declaring Independance from the Tower of Babel

For an American, it’s strange to think of the 4th of July being just another day in the rest of the world. No fireworks, just another day. Of course the inhabitants of other countries are just as proud to be French, German, Dutch, Australian, British, Japanese, and so on. They love their countries as much as we Americans love ours.

Translate This:  Proud to be an American and able to talk with the citizens of Earth on this Independence Day

Found in Translation: Freedom to cross the barriers of language

Today I was perusing the WordPress support forums and found information on a WordPress editor with a helpful link to a site in French.  Uh oh, my French is pretty rusty.  But the site has a Translate This button.

Diane Bourque, the site’s owner, has an article on bilingual posts that pointed me to an  amazing “translate this” button.  The Translate This button supports 52 languages and it is easy to install as a plugin.

Get the “Translate This Button” Plugin

Just go to Plugins>New> look up the Translate This Button and activate.  The Translate This site has details on settings, which include using Google Analytics. I just added it to Blogs News Reviews.  See it over to the right?  Try it.  Read these words in another language!

So on this proud day for Americans (who owe success in the Revolutionary War in no small part to France), thank you Diane for this easy to use translation button.  The citizens of the newly born America of 235 years ago could hardly have imagined an Earth linked together by a series of tubes and able to understand the people of other lands.
