How long would it take to translate all the world’s Web content into 50 languages? Even if all of the translators in the world worked around the clock, it would take hundreds of years to make even a small dent.

Internet giant Google has announced a new website translator gadget powered by Google Translate that enables you to make your site’s content available in 51 languages. Now, when people visit your page, if their language (as determined by their browser settings) is different than the language of your page, they’ll be prompted to automatically translate the page into their own language.

If the visitor’s language is the same as the language of your page, no translation banner will appear, explains Jeff Chin, product manager, Google. The translator gadget is easy to install — all you have to do is cut and paste a short snippet into your webpage to increase the global reach of your blog or website.

Automatic translation is convenient and helps people get a quick gist of the page. However, it’s not a perfect substitute for the art of professional translation, according to Google.

In August this year, Google launched a feature in Google Docs (a useful application for sharing documents) that automatically translates documents into 42 different languages.

  3. http://www.yourwebsitein40languages.com is the translator I use for my website. It works in real time, while you watch. Amazing and easy to integrate – takes 30 seconds to add the code and has no annoying branding or popups.

  4. iPhone 4 will come soon, can you do some review for the new iPhone 4 generation.
    Thanks
