Language Translation
« on May 7th, 2011, 01:48 PM »
I know Google Translator is not the best, I don't know of any automated one that doesn't give you the heebee jeebee's in the hands of one not interested in the context of the message, but is it posible to have that as an option for languages placed somewhere in the header?

Err... I would recommend strongly against this.
Google Chrome does this for the user, if they want so.

And it's usually passable enough in quality to get the gist if not the detail of what's going on. But yeah, I don't really want to go too far into this if possible, at least not in the core; most forums are not multi-language.

I agree most aren't multi-lingual but it's something I encounter as our consortium of forums is international and most of us are not versed in each others langauge tho the content of each is of interest to our members. With none of use being coders I've placed the code in a block which is ugly but functional. It would look better if placed in the header.

Any JavaScript should be placed as late as possible in the html. (With a few exceptions that don't apply to anything that manipulates the entire DOM.)
