worbo
Bit of feedback and it's not good! I can't see the button anywhere on my screen. Please tell me I'm not blind!
Aamir
It is at the top of the article, it says 'Google Translate' and there is a drop down with selct language...or there is on my screen! more feedback please
worbo
Nope, can't see it.
Aamir
Actually, I've just turned my pop-up blocker off, and it's there.
Aamir
My blocker is on and its there...new technology, I try it but I dont always understand it!!!! Do you think this is a worthwhile service? Feed back would be much appreciated, BTW Aamir I have still not got over Saturday!
worbo
Ah, give it time. You'll get over it. ;) OK, this is gonna sound weird but here goes. I've turned my po-up blocker on and it's not there. But when I refresh the page, it is there! So basically, I have to refresh the page for it to be there!
Aamir
And yes, I think it is a worthwhile service, even if Google Translator is a bit crap sometimes!
Aamir
Weird...its a Beta, dont know what that means but I know it means something, could that be the reason?...just hope that its helpful to all our non English friends who may find the site a little easier to read in their native word
worbo
I too have absolutely no idea what Beta means. And I thought I knew a bit about technology!
Aamir
Wonder if it is worth doing a ctrl F5 Aamir, just to see if it clears your cache. Doubtful I guess, but worth a go! Be interesting to hear from those who are bi-lingual just how good/bad the translation is. Google, amongst others, admit that it isn't perfect and to be fair, it could be many years before we do get perfect, easy translations, but as long as it isn't total nonsense, it should serve a purpose?!?!? The one problem is in football there are a lot of words that don't mean much elsewhere + some words don't translate in some languages, like VITAL apparently!
The Fear
Well I can tell you that the German translations are perfectly understandable! Then again, I would defend my own idea...
