Language/Plugin

  1. I have a blog hosted on wordpress.com and right now I can't self-host it to add plugins. But it is extremely important for me to be able to change the language on my blog for my readers. So I want to write all my posts in portuguese (my mother tongue) and then let my readers be able to shift between portuguese and english quickly. So I can understand why you cannot let people install plugins on the WordPress platform, but this kind of tool would be really helpful not only for me but for a lot of other users.

  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 and we cannot install 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. If those do not suit you, you can write a blog post in the two languages and then post the two versions of the entry on the same blog, make each language category, create a custom menu and add the categories pages to it.
