Language is a tool for communication, not a barrier. Easier said then done! Don’t worry, technology can help.

Translations of small bits of text, can quickly be found with Google Translate. Copy and paste unknown language text and then have it auto detect language. Google Translator Toolkit offers the same for full documents.

Translations through Web Browsers

Finding content, of any type, in another language(not your primary), should not scare you away. When you have tools to translate it is no longer intimidating.

Apple’s Safari: The extension page had a translating app. The page is buggy and the extensions details would not load; probably because Chrome was being used. If you use Safari I am sure you should be able to access this page and the extension.

“Go Chrome!” – Ted
