Translate Your Blog/Website in Different Languages - Part 1

Why do you want to translate your blog/website in different languages? I know it is the fact that people from all over the world will search in Google, Yahoo!, MSN or other search engines and they might find your blog/website not in their native language. How can they understand what your contents are all about? Therefore, it is necessary that you provide them a translation tool so that they can translate your blog/website by simply clicking on their corresponding country flag.

You can get a Google Translator Widget here. So far this widget can translate your blog/website from English in other ten languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. After you've got the widget code, following the steps below to implement it in your New Blogger:

  • First login to your Blogger's Dashboard.
  • Second click on Layout.
  • Next click on Add a Page Element.
  • Then a new window will pop up.
  • Find HTML/JavaScript and click on Add to Blog.
  • A new window will just pop on top of the other one.
  • Put the code you've got earlier in the content area and give a title if you wish.
  • Click on Save to save it.
  • Move the widget wherever you want it to be
  • Finally click on Save which is on top of your New Blogger's layout.
I'll add more languages to this widget in the future. So bookmark this post and come back to check my update. Your comments are welcome.

Update: Read Translate Your Blog/Website in Different Languages - Part 2 to find out the more codes of the languages and their corresponding country flags I've made for you.
