Only 29.5% of the people online right now know English. If your blog is written only in English, not even 1/3 of Internet users can read it. However, there is a quick solution that will open the doors to your blog to Internet users around the world. You can integrate a machine language translator that will translate the content in your blog and attract an international audience.
There are few free website translators, but the easiest to integrate is Babel Fish Translation from Altavista. We used a blog hosted by Blogger in this step-by-step instruction on how to integrate Babel Fish.
1) From the Altavista home page, click Babel Fish Translation, then Add Babel Fish Translation to your site.
2) In the section titled “Translate your page” click the button, I want this one!. This will give you the code for the web page translator in a popup window. Highlight and copy the code to your clipboard.
3) In your Blogger interface, go to your Dashboard and then go to Layout.
6) Next, click Save Changes. You can drag and place your Babel Fish Translation into the bottom bar or side bar of your blog.
This will add the AltaVista Babel Fish translation box to your blog and readers can simply click on their flag to read your blog in their native language. Cool huh.
