Can anyone help with this one ?
A friend in Germany says that he cannot get an automatic translation of my home page when he brings it up in Google.

Is this a facility that Google provides on "foreign language" sites at its own discretion as it were, or is there some tag or whatever that I can put on the site to initiate autotranslation ?

cheers..Ed
PS- nothing too technical please :-)

did a google search and this is what came up -

http://www.google.com/language_tools

http://www.freetranslation.com/free/web.htm

http://translation.langenberg.com/

you enter the website into one of the above and it translates the page.

Much obliged for that Carrie

My own Google search only produced the first one, which even though my German is very limited I could see that it was not adequate. However the next two sites certainly appear to have done the business. I will recommend these two to my friend and see how he gets on.

Thanks again.
