What about the idea of adding a translation widget?
Although hugpages is only English language, I see there is some traffic from non-English speaking countries. A translation widget would help to attract more international traffic, despite the fact, as the saying goes, that much may get lost in the translation.
Do you think this is a viable option?
Yeah Im curious too - Ive never seen significant traffic from non-English speaking countries. There are heaps of translation engines on the internet -you just cut and paste in the results are generally dreadful
That is why I asked. I get a little traffic from France when I have written about a restaurant in France that no one else has done - I just added a French translation to the page.
And dribs and drabs from other places so I wondered where this foreign traffic was from.
You are right, it is just dribs and drabs. I think a got a few visitors from Brazil and Italy.
But I was just thinking whether it would be useful as a way to generate more interest.
The translation engines' output is not satisfactory - or at least I haven't seen one that does a decent job. But the reader using it will expect that.
