Google Chrome Is Speaking Your Language
Google has just included their vast translation capabilities into their Google Chrome Browser. Google has been the leader in web translation since introducing their translation widget several years ago. Last year Google included translation into their popular Google Toolbar.
Here is an excellent video on YouTube that explains how to use the new capabilities in Google Chrome click here language translation. Dr Cyberspace has been a proponant of language translation of webpages for many years.
There is an audience for all website content even if that audience is in another country or in another language. Even in the U.S. you could expand your audience by offering language translation on your site. This is just one more reason for you to build your website on a cms (content mamagement system) like Drupal cms. Depending on your language, translation comes with Drupal cms right out of the box.
I would say that with the Google Toolbar and Google Chrome applications your site could reach an audience around the planet. With the Google Chrome browser, language detection takes place on your computer. Until you decide to translate a page, no information is sent to Google Translate. The request to Google Translate's servers does not include any cookies. It even works with https.
Google has made the compact language detection library ( Google Chrome language detection is based on this library) available as open source code. With this new capability in Chrome, you can start researching your projects using foreign language sources. You can even conduct e-commerce, with its https capabilities, across borders and languages.
