Google Translate

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Wed Dec 30, 2015 11:05 am

I've added the Google Translate code to the MX pages (except Bugs/Features, not sure about that one). It seems to work pretty well for the languages I know, and gives our non-English users better access to that material.

What do you think? Keep it?

Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

I see it in FF.

Must be worth keeping I would think; we seem to have a few non-English speakers in the forum, so there may be a lot more users who would appreciate it.

I don't see it in Midori or Pale Moon. Can s.o. give a link, where it is supposed to be?
I see the Google translator on the Manual page.

What I see running live MX-15, it does seem like a good idea. I think we should offer more languages though - at least to include the ones we have supported on the iso ie there is no Greek though it is 90% complete,

The code may somehow be specific to FF and derivatives. Not sure what to do about that.

About languages: we have up until now restricted those to all countries downloading 10% or more of one of the ISOs, but can certainly revisit that policy--maybe we should just include all.
