With the globalization of websites, it’s important to communicate in various languages. Google helps make this possible with their website translator tool. This widget allows you to translate your website’s content into many languages such as Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese.
So why would you want to add a translator tool to your website? Here are some reasons:
First, many people may come to your website from different countries. And if you provide resources on your website such as blog posts, then having your content translated into different languages increases your sphere of influence. The Google Website Translator tool helps you communicate across different languages.
Second, having a translator tool will make your website more attractive to a larger audience because your content will be accessible to more people. With more people interested in your site’s content, your website’s traffic is likely to increase. And more traffic to your website is always good.
Last, Google’s Website Translator tool works with the text already on your website. So you don’t need to translate any text. Google does all the heavy lifting. Sure, the translation is computer-driven and is therefore not 100% accurate. But it is a good alternative translation that you can offer to people who read in a different language than yours.
