Yeah, well, Anima, IS THERE AN ENGLISH TRANSLATION OPTION AVAILABLE? It has been a bit since last time the topic was raised. I do realise that it is a pain in the nether regions, but since it has been mooted, well.... If it's not on the books, just let us know, that's all, we won't mind. (I won't, anyway.) It is the suspense that is frustrating...

No there isn't a translate option - at least not cheaply. :-(

But, I don't understand...
I take it, a given forum will have a basic language. All translations are taken as being the ones different from that one. So why not put the forum on, say, Ojibwean base, (OK, OK, just joking, what I meant is Mongolian.), and then English as well as Spanish and all the others will be as standard, in the translation options. You can of course still type in any of these, so translation is not required for most of us. (Unless we are Mongolian.)

OK, Yuri try this,

go to the main page www.gaitaforum.com

Click on the Spanish Flag, your version of the forum software is now localized to Spanish

then......

Go to this page http://translate.google.com/translate_tools

and scroll down to the translate buttons

drag the "English" button up to your toolbar

now whenever you need the page translated, click the link on your toolbar.

If the page is not set to Spanish (or some language other than English) you will get an error from Google if yo try to translate it into English.

Try this and tell me what you think.

I"ve read that Google Chrome is going to offer automatic translation soon, if not already.

Erm... What's a "toolbar"?
Duh.

If you are using Internet Explorer 6 - it is time to upgrade to version 7. In fact, a funeral was held for IE6 on March 1. It really is time to move on.

Better yet use Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera. All much better options than IE6 or 7. Once you've done that let me know. :ugeek:
