How to Translate Your Blog

Would you like to read this blog in Spanish? What about German, French, Portugese, or Italian? Or stretch even further and read this blog translated into Japanese, Chinese, or Korean?

Think of the possibilities. With a click, your blog is accessible by millions of non-English speakers. You’ve opened your words up to the world.
Would you like to know how to include these instant translation links for your blog? Well, that’s what I’m here for.

These instant translation links use Google’s Language Tools to translate your blog’s text into one of many different languages.

To add instant translation links to your blog, you simply need a link that when clicked will take the user to the Google Translation page, displaying your blog translated in the language of the user’s choice. Here is a breakdown of the link. url&langpair=language abbreviation to translate from%7Clanguage abbreviation to translate to&hl=language abbreviation to translate to&ie=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools

To translate my blog into Spanish, which means I’m converting the page from Indonesian (id) to Spanish (es), this is the link. &langpair=id%7Ces&hl=es &ie=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools

NOTE: Remove the spaces in the links before using. The spaces are for display formatting.

These translations aren’t perfect, but they are getting better all the time.

So add some language translation links to your sidebar or posts and help spread the word about your blog to the world.
