Google Website Translator plugin on the blog

  1. Hi! Please. I know it is possible to translate the blog in different languages by Google Translator. I understood the procedure but I do not know where to write the "meta tag" or the "snippet " in my blog to activate the Google Website Translator plugin on the pages. Can anyone help me please? Thank you.

  2. Google translation widgets are JavaScript and it's stripped out to preserve security on this mutiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ There is no FTP access http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/ and we cannot install plugins http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ because this is a multiuser blogging platform ie. our blogs are not free standing and there are security issues that would arise if that access were allowed. I have translation on my WordPress.com blogs. There are two workarounds and you will find them here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/02/14/translation-widget-for-wordpress-com-blogs/

  3. Thanks a lot.
    My problem is, where do I write the code generated in this link?

    http://free-website-translation.com/?it

    Something like this:

    <img src="http://free-website-translation.com/img/fwt_button_it.gif" id="ftwtranslation_image" alt="Tool per traduzioni di pagine web" style="border:0;"/>
    By free-website-translation.com<script type="text/javascript" src="http://free-website-translation.com/scripts/fwt.js" /></script>

    Please, can you direct me to where in the blog I put it?

    Thanks again.
    CS

  4. We cannot use any JavaScript on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. The software strips the code out to preserve security and stability on this multiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/#javascript

  5. Ok. Thanks again.

  6. Also, you can add a menu button (or a image with link) for google translate.

    Use this link:
    http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&u=http%3A%2F%2F"yourdomain name here"

    Note: Change "yourdomain name here" with your domain name (without quotes). You can see how it works in my blog.

  7. Thanks for ideas ... I add a image with link for google translate (in my case polish-english) You can see it in my page how it works ... http://stylishland.wordpress.com/

  8. hi - total novice here...

    I added a widget image (from my admin) inserting the link you specified + my domain name, but nothing has happened.

    How do you add the flags too ?

    Any step by step instructions would be useful !

    thanks

    PS I used "free translation.com" as above but my friends didn't seem to like it. I added this link into a text widget. It worked.
