Australia is a multicultural country with fifth of its population born abroad. The people here speak many languages other then English.
Having a blog on the Internet poses an issue of understanding. I have visitors from all over the world but do they even remotely understand what my pictures and their caption relate to?
Over the weekend I have added a new feature the this photo blog: a language translation. This is an automatic translation tool powered by Google and the results may differ from language to language but I figured out this is better than nothing for these visitors who view my blog and do not understand English.
The language translation toolbar is an experiment only at this stage and I will decide if I should keep it after a while when I can review its usage statistics.
