Can I get some of the fellow members for translation widget testers?

So I realized that viewers from other countries spent less time on my site and I needed a translator widget which handled dozens of languages and not just 6 so I have installed Google translate beta

http://translate.google.com/translate...

I took the button flags from the majority of the countries and places them in a row and on each side of the translation widget to make it look better and get the viewer to see their flags and hopefully see that it is a translator

Below is a pic of how I laid out the widget and images in my editor. If others wish to include it to their site please feel free to use the images.

As to the reason for my post... Can I get some members to click on their language in the drop down box and tell me if the translator works? I know that it won't be a perfect translation but I hope that at least it can be understood.

Oh by the way if you click on many languages Google will shut you out and think you are a spam bot (sadly they shut me out when I was testing it so much... LOL)

Thanks so much...
Ed

Yes it works. I clicked on "Nederlands" and the text changed, even though I do not speak that language. The banner text of course did not change. That is a really great website you have there. You have put a lot into it.

Thanks Robert

It's nice to know that it functioned as I hoped it would. Now if I could only get some members from other countries to reply and let me know how accurate it is I would be most happy.

You know all the time I have invested in my site I have an equal amount of time spent here helping others in the forums. The nice thing about this ability to have a forum open in the next tab is that I frequently pop in to see if I can answer anyone in need of help. LOL over 600 replies and I am still here...

Thanks for your cudos on my site.

Happy site building

se, lavarato molto bene. L'italiano fu leggible. Ma, il tuo flash e banners non fa la traduzione. Forse vuoi scrivere sotto che sono e potremo capire tutti.

if, wash very well. The Italian was legible. But, your banners and flash is not the translation. Perhaps you want to write as they are and we can all understand.

Well I didn't say google was 100% accurate but lol it's better than nothin

The only thing that the translator does is translate text and not images or graphics. I do notice quite a bit of shift and color change on certain pages where some text has hyperlinks. I cannot do anything to fix this as it looks fine before the translation it must be something to do with the change over. Sad huh?

Thanks Guido

close... I've yet to find a translator that does it 100%. Lavarato was a typo, and should of been lavorato = worked. the second line means... the italian was readable, but your flash & banners did not translate. then.. perhaps you want to write below what they are, and we would be able to understand all. :)
