A translate button would be nice

    When somebody posts a problem that needs resolving but it is in a different language could it be possible to have a translate button next to the post so admin or moderators or other commentors can assist with their issues?

    This may save on space of having to have so many different forums and also the comments they write in other languages just might be of help to people of other languages too.

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

    Machine translation if inferior to the translation available from human translators. WordPress.com is richly blessed with human translators and has several support forums in languages other than English. That’s why I don’t believe eliminating the other language forums we have is a viable suggestion. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/forums-in-other-languages-not-english?replies=1

    Are there any human translators on this particular forum? because all I have seen tonight is links being given out to the different language forums.

    A translate button still could help other users just so we can see what they are asking and if it will help us in anyway.

    I think it is a fair suggestion.

    I think so too, I’m Greek actually and I know people who have difficulty in understand English and thus don’t read my blog.
    I also believe that the button should just lead to a human translation rather than one made by the computer.

    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. Google translation widgets are Javascript and it’s stripped out to preserve security on this mutiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    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/

    umm… I don’t really understand but it seems like automatic translation is really bad.

    I agree that automatic translation isn’t great.
