New Translation Feature

Hey – I just added some translation tools to this site on the right column. I think they rock!! I heard you could do that but I hadn’t seen anyone actually use the Google translation tools on their site.
Its real easy to use – just go to Google language tools, use the “translate this page” command and enter in the site address for each language. Copy the address for every language and use the addresses as links in your list. No sweat! I cant believe others are not using this feature. Thanks Google!

  • Thanks for trying out this translation google thing.
    I tested the French version of your pages. Well, they are very readable, and understandable for the most part. Of course the french grammar is off a lot and it sounds a bit funny…
    On the whole, I think it’s good, as it gives french people (among others) access to more content.
    So thanks ! 🙂

  • Yeah, I noticed Leonard’s name in Spanish, too — “Dulce de Leonard” sounds like quite the tasty dessert!
    But I’d say that although it does read a bit funny, it gets enough of the meaning across well enough that someone with even a *very* basic understanding of English should be able to make sense out of it.
