Talk: Languages on the Internet at Google

    hello Do you have any advice on automated language conversion? i have a site that im advised would do well in other languages but i cant afford to pay for somebody to translate. Is there anything out there that may work? JJ

    Hy Stephanie I just watched the movie of your talk about languages on the internet. It was very interesting for me – especially your suggestions of how to detect the language of the visitor of a site.

Besides: For this post I use English instead of French, since my French is even worse than my English, although I’m Swiss (german part)… Thanks for your work! Patrick

    Thanks for the useful information. Ended up here from Google’s blog after I saw your comment. I’ve just been put in-charged of optimizing 14 country websites of a big multinational and the problem is they use folders for the different languages, instead of subdomains.
