Windows 7: Testing Out the Microsoft Translator Widget

16 Apr 2009   #1

Testing Out the Microsoft Translator Widget

Back during MIX09 in March, the Microsoft Translator Widget for websites was announced. People with websites or blogs can embed the Microsoft Translator Widget (powered by Microsoft Translator) into their site. Visitors of websites and blogs that have the Microsoft Translator Widget embedded can translate the content on the website without having to leave the site at all which is awesome.

Ive added the Microsoft Translator Widget to the Windows Experience Blog. Its not yet deployed to all our blogs here on The Windows Blog just yet as Id like to test it out first. The Microsoft Translator Widget will show up in the sidebar of the Windows Experience Blog where you can choose a specific language to translate the content to without leaving our site. The widget looks like this:

I would love to get some feedback on how well the Microsoft Translator Widget translates my blog posts. If you are fluent in any of the languages the Microsoft Translator Widget can translate to, translate my blog posts and let me know in the comments below how well its translating the blog posts.

You feedback will be much appreciated!

Please note: I am looking for feedback on how well the Microsoft Translator Widget translates content here not feedback on the widget specifically. If you have specific feedback regarding the Microsoft Translator Widget, how it works, issues with it on your site, etc I suggest leaving that feedback on this blog post for the Microsoft Translator Team.

If you are a website owner and wish to add the Microsoft Translator Widget to your website or blog you can register here for a invite code.

Interesting, it looks very cool but im sure many people that build websites would rather use language packs or thier own translation script rather than a third party widget/app/service.
