Need to Act?

As a web surfer: By using Google translate, you may open up in your native language texts and educational resources that were not accessible before.

  • If the Google Translate My Page gadget is provided at a page, select the desired language, and the page's content will be translated into that language.
  • If the Google Translate My Page gadget is not provided, then copy the contents you want to translate, and paste it at Google Translate; next set languages in the From: and To: fields, and select translate.

As a web content creator: When you publish web content in any of the listed languages, and you want this content to be accessible also for speakers of other languages, your reader will save time when you include on the page the Google Translate My Page (gadget). Readers can then easily access the content in any of the listed languages.

Note that translations will not always be accurate, yet for shorter sentences translation quality is probably better than for longer sentences. Moreover, translation quality is likely to improve gradually.
