me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
i work with a lot of foreign language websites, most in languages i
do not read. to help me with that i often use google translate. but,
i got sick of copying and pasting URLs or text, so i built this
translate button for firefox.
it works like this: when you're on a page and you want to translate it,
surf to the "translate" bookmark (i've located mine in the bookmark toolbar
folder in ffox). poof, automagically translated into english. the magic
for your current page as a target of google translate, and then surf
you there. voila.
make a "translate" bookmark and make this the "location" in its properties.
now you, too, can have a translate button.
newurl = 'http://translate.google.com/translate?u=' + h + '&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&sl=*&tl=en';
window.location = newurl;
paste that code in. simple as that. if you need to change the target language
you can change "tl=en" to another laguage (e.g. "es" or "fr"). the
source language is automatically determined by google translate (see
