Erm, Pythecantropus Communis here.
How do I find out just what I use?
You know as in guiding me step by step. "put your finger on here, then push the mouse there sort of thing.
As an aside. On my website (which needless to say is NOT run by me) the sound samples don't seem to open on Firefox. As has been pointed out by people on other forums, that's not so sh*t-hot, as nearly half the traffic now is using Firefox. Which makes me wonder if I should leave my hand-cranked computer habits and start learning a wee bit more about it. I suspect what I don't have is the computer jargon, really. It's not as if I'm dumb, I just have no idea what the specific words mean. From the bottom up. Yeah, as in staring with not knowing what is a toolbar.
Duh.

open your browser, click on "help", then click on "about" or "about internet explorer" and it will tell you which version you are using.

Right.
It's actually Internet Explorer 8. So I suppose I am up to date.

OK Yuri,

Here's how you do it in Internet Explorer

first go to http://www.gaitaforum.com, and click on the Spanish flag to set the base language of the forum to Spanish

Image

Then go to http://translate.google.com/translate_buttons


Image

Make sure your favorites toolbar is turned on (ie, has a check next to it)


Image

Right click on the English button


Image

click on Yes when dialog box appears

Image

When the next dialog box appears, click on the down arrow (circled in red)

Image

and choose "Favorites Bar"


Image

Now you will have an "English" button on your Favorites toolbar

Image

Click that button whenever you need to translate a page (any web page) into English. The caveat is that the default language of the forum needs to be some language other than English or you will get an error back from the Google translate page.

If you are using Firefox, you can just drag the button up to the toolbar.

This will actually work for any language as long as the base language of the forum is not the same language you are tying to translate to.

Anima, I can't express my gratitude warmly enough. You made it clear enogh for a trilobite to follow, let alone a comparatively intelligent entity like a Pythecantropus.
Thanks a lot.
