Solved How to add Google translation on my forum?

Post by Kadreyah on August 17th 2013, 7:37 pm

[size=12]
Good afternoon!


My name is Kadreyah and I am the Admin of the forum
http://scentorient.forumotion.com/

This forum was set up with English language as primary language, but there are others users which not so familiar with English.

This is why i would like to add a google translation for my forum exactly like on this forum http://www.romaniaalgeria.com/ (it is set up on the left column).

I used kind of translation in multi languages on a blog too http://insidemyheartisyou.blogspot.com/ but I don't know how to figure it out for my forum.


I wish to mention that I already tried with Google translator => Web translation and it gives me this:


Paste this code onto your website

Copy and paste the following code snippets onto every page you want to translate

Place this meta tag before the closing </head>

<meta name="google-translate-customization" content="5e85981a100a30f4-7cd73f1aa3fe9219-ge66334afb5441f79-1b"></meta>

And this:

Place this snippet where you'd like to display the Website Translator plugin on your page

<div id="google_translate_element"></div><script type="text/javascript">
function googleTranslateElementInit() {
  new google.translate.TranslateElement({pageLanguage: 'en', layout: google.translate.TranslateElement.InlineLayout.SIMPLE, gaTrack: true, gaId: 'UA-43105513-1'}, 'google_translate_element');
}
</script><script type="text/javascript" src="//translate.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>


I don't know how to manage the things to make this translation on my forum, every time I tried it appeared on the page of the forum the code as I put it and not what I was expect.

I know I didn't do it right, this is why I kindly ask your support and advice!
Thank you in advance!

Please don't use bold or color. Please keep to the default text. This is reserved for the staff for moderation.
Create a new widget and add this:
Code:
<div id="google_translate_element"></div><script type="text/javascript">
function googleTranslateElementInit() {
 new google.translate.TranslateElement({pageLanguage: 'en', layout: google.translate.TranslateElement.InlineLayout.SIMPLE, gaTrack: true, gaId: 'UA-43105513-1'}, 'google_translate_element');
}
</script><script type="text/javascript" src="//translate.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>

I am sorry about the bold! I swear I didn't made it myself, i just copy/ paste your name and after this I wrote the message!

I am not a fan of bold using and I know that I don't have to mark something so that my message got seen! Really, I apologize because of this mistake, it wasn't my intention at all to use this!

omg! I just tried now the code and it works perfect like a glove! I wish I can thank you millions of times by press on Thanks button but it just once! Yet, I am thanking you so so so so so much!!! I feel great!!! :wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou::wouhou:loul
