Lack of Interest Add Google Translator to XF

    Google Translator is a solid tool which can translate a web page to dozens of languages. It is an amazing enhancement to any website and truly opens a lot of doors. If the translator is embedded into our forums or website, it can offer users fast translations with a single drop down box selection. For those who are not familiar with the tool you can read about it here: http://translate.google.com/translate_tools

    While I am not familiar with website coding, the code snippet to add the tool to my site appears rather simple:

    <div id="google_translate_element"></div><script>
    function googleTranslateElementInit() {
      new google.translate.TranslateElement({
        pageLanguage: 'en',
        multilanguagePage: true,
        layout: google.translate.TranslateElement.InlineLayout.HORIZONTAL
      }, 'google_translate_element');
    </script><script src="//translate.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>
    An example of this tool embedded in a web page can be seen on the upper right side of the following link: http://andreasviklund.com/

    I suggest that Google Translate be integrated into XF on all pages. Hopefully you agree. If not, perhaps someone with the skills can make this into an add-on.

    Hey mate,
    I'm pretty sure the developers are not going to integrate this with xenForo as default, because the translations are way to unprofessional.
    The translated phrases are sometimes even not understandable.

    Anyhow, I will create a Template Modification for you, it can't be that difficult :D
