Madeira Blog Translated

levadeiro/ June 27, 2006/ Blog, Uncategorized

Lot of travel and lodging businesses that also owns a website spend lot of time and money in having a multilingual website. For example I write this weblog about Madeira in English … but I also would like to have a Portuguese version … because Madeira is a Portuguese island. The same time I want to reach another mayor visitor’s category namely the Germans and Spanish. Let’s not forget the Italians and the French. However … I do not have the time to translate all the text and, for sure, I do not want to waste money in expensive multi-language CMS software for achieve this.

BUT … why invent the wheel if it is already built? And it’s even free to put it under your wagon. Who else but Google (again?) has built the translating-wheel.

Want to read this blog in Portuguese? What about German, French, Spanish or Italian? Hey! Let’s boogie all the way to into Japanese, Chinese, and even Korean.

This all thanks to Google’s Language Tools … that translates with one click my blog’s text into one of eight different languages.

And also thanks to Lorelle who describes how you can do this. Like she says:
Add some language translation links and help spread the word about your blog to the world.
