The Google Translate plugin provides a convenient little sidebar widget for sites using Mango Blog's framework. Once activated, the plugin acts as a Pod and is controlled through a small admin screen that supplies options for display and tracking.

For display, there are options for vertical, horizontal and dropdown only.

There is an option to automatically display the translation banner at the top of the browser window for users speaking other languages than your native page language. If the option is checked, it will display. By default, it is set to not display.

There is another option that asks if the website contains content in more than one language. By default, it is set to no but if your website has multiple languages on it, this will prepare the translation better.

The last option is the ability to track the translation usage in Google Analytics. If your website uses Google Analytics to track traffic, the plugin will track the onpage translation.

Last Update:

3-8-2011: The plugin was using a wrong event to populate the meta tag needed for the widget to work fully. The event was adjusted, and the meta tag now populates as it should.
