    Language Tranlators


    Hello All,

    I am designing a dynamic webpage in English language, and I wish to have it translated to various languages on the fly. What I wish to do is for example, enter some text in the back-end console in English, and then this is translated dynamically in various languages on my web page, in the various language sections. Is this possible? Does a component exist for this? Or do I have to do it all manually?

    Thanks for your help and time

    Hire someone who speaks both languages to do the translation for you. Machine translations still have a long way to go.

    Another way to use this is to translate by token. You webapp then loads the "hello token" for whatever language the user has selected. This is more beneficial for navigation elements and other bits and pieces that get reused often.

    Automated translations that are done on the fly are never that good. Languages are too complex. Get yourself a professional translator if it's important.
