ConveyThis: A Free Translation Tool For Your Blog
By on August 12th, 2009

With an increasing number of global readers, a blog or website cannot survive without offering their content in multiple languages. There are many services that users can use to translate a web page like Google or Babel, but going through the whole process of copying URLs is quite a hassle.

There is a tool, however, which can make it easy for both the users and the webmasters. ConveyThis, adds a translation button to a website or blog, that allows visitors to translate that website into 40   different languages. The button is quite similar in function to the popular AddToAny button.

As soon as the visitor brings their mouse over the button, a window pops-up allowing the visitor to select their desired language. After they have chosen their language, they can choose from 3 or 4 different translation services including Google and Babel. A separate wordpress plugin is also available for easier installation.

    I’m the last person to say that machine translation is something bad. It is very important for many uses – but not for blogs!!! You see guys – the translation is not very good and our readers (the less techie readers – who are the majority of our readers) don’t understand that, and may think that our content sucks. I translate from times to times part of my content with OneHourTranslation.com (a low-cost translation service which uses real professional translators) and I feel good about my image abroad.

    I tried this one out on my blog briefly. I did not like the embedded advertisement in it. I found that Google offers an alternative that my readers will be more likely to use because of the familiarity with Google Translate.

    Here’s a link to the very nice Google Translate Gadget that I now have installed.

      Worse Clif, and you’ve essentially said this; the widget embeds a hidden link to a translation company. Hidden links are really bad for SEO and putting this on your site will screw you on Google.
