Google Translate is a web part for Kentico CMS that allows you to quickly add the free Google Translate Web Element to your website pages. The web part exposes the same configuration properties as the Element, allowing for full control over the Element's appearance and behavior.
What is Google Translate Web Element?
The Google Translate Web Element allows you to instantly make your website available in other languages. After you enable the Element on your webpage, through the use of the web part, visitors to your webpage will be offered the option to view a translated version of your website. Visitors whose web browser language is different from the language of your website will see a banner at the top of the page prompting them for translation. Other users can, if they choose, trigger translation from a dropdown menu on your page with a list of supported languages. When a visitor translates a page, the Web Element sends the text of the web page to Google Translate and displays the translated text without reloading or redirecting visitors from the page. If the visitor clicks on a link in the translated page and the linked web page also has the Element embedded in it, the linked web page will also be automatically translated for the them, allowing them to seamlessly browse through your website in their language.
What languages are supported?
The web part supports the same languages supported by the Google Translate Web Element. The Element currently supports translation between 57 languages.
You can find more information on the Google Translate Help area. You can also visit the Google Translate Web Element setup wizard for a complete list of configuration properties available.
