Is there a way to add a translate plug-in to WordPress?

  1. Was able to add the Google translator to my website.....is there a way to do it here on WordPress, or is there another plug-in that I can use?

    The blog I need help with is stoutstandards.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there,
    The answer to your question is "no" but do read on. We do not have FTP access and we bloggers cannot install any plugins, so we cannot use Microsoft or Google translation widgets or any others, as they are JavaScript and it's stripped out to preserve security on this multiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/#javascript

    However, 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/
    Note: You can copy and paste the code on my Translations page and then replace every occurrence of my blog's URL in the code with your own blog's URL.

  3. Can I copy this code and add it to my sidebar?

  4. This is the page in question > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/translation/ I would not copy all of that into a text widget. It's simply to much.

  5. Hate to be a pain, but if I were to copy this, substitute my URL, where would I place it in my blog? Hmm, that doesn't sound right....I guess maybe I am wasting my time.

    People visit my site from other countries and I would love to have them be able to translate. What would you suggest? I understand your code, just not where it would be good to use it.

  6. Well I have it on a Page and it's well used so I suppose where you could put it too. Create a page > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

  7. A favor...I have added your html code to the left column of my blog and it seems to work fine. I have an "n" there that I cannot get rid of however. Can help help please? I do not see it in the html code.

  8. Open the text widget and remove the n.

  9. <h3>Vertaal</h3>
    <div>n<strong>
  10. Really feeling stupid I cannot find this?

  11. It's there. If it did not exist then I could not have posted it above.

  12. This is what I see?

  13. No that came out wrong....so sorry. I tried to post the code I see in the widget but it did not work. Let me look again. I really do like your translate code and appreciate all your help. Just need to get rid of that darn n.....

  14. Please don't post that code again. It's not at all helpful. I can read the source code on the blog. Open the text widget and locate what I posted above http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/is-there-a-way-to-add-a-translate-plug-in-to-wordpress?replies=13#post-1316074

  15. I guess I will just keep searching...I cannot see anything close to this....sorry I am pretty dense about stuff like this. Thank you again, I really appreciate your help.

  18. Warning: This will look like I am SHOUTING! at you.

    Go here > Appearance > Widgets

    Click to open the TEXT WIDGET!
    and in it you will see this:

    <h3>Vertaal</h3>
    <div>n
    <table border="0">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
  19. You are welcome to shout at me. I am sorry for all this. I have spent two hours looking for this in the html code under translate. I do not see it, nor do I see it when I go to "view source"....will get back to it tomorrow. Thanks for your patience...

  20. Stop with the view source code stuff and o what I told you to do please.

    Go here > Appearance > Widgets

    Click to open the TEXT WIDGET!
    and in it you will see this:

    <h3>Vertaal</h3>
    <div>n
    <table border="0">
    <tbody>
    <tr>

  21. You brought up the view source thing I didn't. I am not the brightest but I am also not all that stupid. The code you see I DO NOT, and I have spent two hours looking for it. Sorry. As much as I'd like to use this on my blog it just isn't worth this kind of back and forth.

    Thanks for your help...

  22. You deleted the code you had in the text widget or your deleted the text widget completely so there was no code to view when I returned to this thread. I'm not upset about this at all. We can still work through this to get what you want.

  23. I took it down because of that "n". I will ad it back in a few minutes if you want to look at it again.

  24. It's back up again...

  25. I removed the 'n' so here you go:

  26. Thank you, appreciated. I would still love to know why I could not see it, and that does not mean you were wrong. Things like this will often cause me to spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out....simply because I want to know why. Maybe this time I will never know.

    Thanks again for the code, and for your patience with my inability to understand.

  27. All I did was remove this:

    <h3>Vertaal</h3>
    <div>n
  28. I wanted to say something here but I won't....let's just consider all this over an done with.

  29. Best wishes to your with your blog and in all you do.
