I have a new blogger tip for you today.
Because the built-in TRANSLATE FEATURE at the top of blogs does not always work, Google has created a TRANSLATE WIDGET for Blogger. It is easy to install, and is user friendly for your visitors.
The Browser’s header claims that the translation has been performed. But we can see that has not happened:
The top bar often looks like this. But the translation does not work:
There is an Option at the top right of the bar next to your google ID:
But that still does not fix the problem:
So add the feature to your blogger account by choosing:
DESIGN > LAYOUT > ADD A GADGET > and choose TRANSLATE.
Be sure to save your changes. It is preferable to leave the TRANSLATE BUTTON toward the top of your blog or at the top of one of your side panels. (Remember to move the TRANSLATE BUTTON to the top each time a new widget is added).
Now the front of your Blogger Blog will show this widget:
It looks like this when a visitor clicks on it:
Our blogging community includes very talented people from many continents. According to the Blogger Stats, most of my visitors are from the USA. But the second largest segment of visitors are from RUSSIA. It is humbling to know that people from all over the world visit our blogs. Having the TRANSLATE BUTTON makes life easier for them.
Hope this was helpful!
