The Indoeuropean Translator Widget is the simple plugin I am using for some of my blogs, which adds translations from and into all language pairs offered by Google Translate. I prepared the first script to be able to report Indo-European Language for Europe news and to make our Proto-Indo-European grammar available in any possible language through online web machine translation.

This widget offers translations from and into (at least) all these languages:

English, Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Maltese, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Welsh, Yiddish.

This widget does not use flag images, it is probably one of the simplest scripts you’d be able to write to add this functionality, and it should be valid XHTML.

If you see the links in the sidebar of this blog, it means it is working in the latest version of WordPress.

Version and Download:

Indoeuropean WordPress Translation Widget PluginIt works since (at least) version 2.1. If you see the language links in the sidebar of this blog, it means it is working in the latest stable version of WordPress.

Changes and other problems:

If you want other language pairs, or the whole code linking only to Yahoo, Google, or even other web translators, or maybe ask a question or make a suggestion, contact me. There are a thousand possible combinations and personal preferences, and I simply cannot prepare them all in advance. You can find me in carlos [at] dnghu [dot] org
