“I just found out Google translate will translate your blog. I am. Going to read it everyday.”

google-translator-buttonsThis comment ranks as one of the sweetest compliments that we’ve received on Albany Kid Family Travel, and it prompted me to see what could be done to make it easier for anyone, anywhere to read our blog.

It turns out that it is possible to have the blog automatically translated into a number of languages using the Global Translator WordPress Plugin. And the Google Translator WordPress plugin adds a set of buttons to the blog’s sidebar so that the reader can easily switch between languages.

Now, I’m not saying that these translations will be great, but they should be good enough to give you a sense of what’s being said. I hope.

Let me know how it works for you, and if it doesn’t, I would love to hear about better alternatives.
