Translate pages for readers?

Post by johnsont »

I've had a request to add the option for viewers to translate the website, much like the translate option available on this page: https://mls.sau88.net/

Is there a way I can do this with CMS Made Simple?

Thanks,
Tessa

Who would do the translations..?
Check ver. CMSMS, PHP, server OS, in System Information page.

That page is using a Google widget to do auto translations, nothing to do with the CMS really.

You can either do something like that by embedding the widget provided by Google or, if you want more control and will translate the content yourself, there's various module and non-module methods.

Thanks all. Yes, I saw that they were using Google Translate. I've read in various places that Google Translate doesn't do a great job, so I was just wondering if CMSMS had a module or something. I guess not. I'll keep looking into Google Translate.

Thanks,

If you translate the page yourself you can set them up as children pages of the page in question then set as not in menu, then make a drop/select menu for those child pages...

The Eridu module does a nice job of managing it, but it does *not* do the translations for you. You would have to provide the translated pages. If you want auto-translations, then yes, the Google option is best.

Thanks all. There's no way I can translate the pages, so I guess Google Translate is my answer. Thanks for the feedback!
