How to Add a Google Translate Button in Blogger

Advertisements
We live in a world where we encounter people speaking different languages. Roughly about 5000 to 6000 languages are spoken all across the world, so it is essential to translate your site if large amount of your audience comes from a specific region speaking different native language. Even though,  the majority of the world understands English, but what about those who don’t? Often we visit sites that are in Russian, French or even Arabic. In that situation, we simply use Google Translate as a tool to polish and translate the whole site into our native language for example English. It may not provide better results, but it would certainly better than nothing. In this article, we will show you How to Add a Google Translate Button in Blogger.

Adding Google Translate in Blogger:

The first thing you need to do is to open Google Translate management page, and click on the big blue "Add to your website now" button. (Be sure, you are logged into your Google account otherwise you have to login to see the functions as it can be seen in the screenshot below).
Now you have to insert your website details on which you want to install the Google Translate. Add your website url i.e. http://www.mybloggerlab.com. From the drop down menu, select the original language of your site (Note: By default English is selected).
You can now customize your Google Translate button to suite your website design. There are a few designing options like vertical, horizontal or drop-down only display mode, you can specify a language or you can choose all languages to translate (we will prefer you to select “all languages”). Once you are done with customization and setting press “Get Code” button at the bottom.

You will now see two kinds of codes the first code verifies your customized translate button, and the second one helps you to display the translate button anywhere in your site.
  1. Copy the first code and go to Blogger >> Template >> Edit HTML >> Search for </head>, and just above it paste the code which you copied. Once done, Save the template and move to the next step.

  2. Now copy and paste the second code anywhere on your site to display the Google Translate button in your blog. We would prefer you to add it in your sidebar, so that it could cover each and every page of your site. Go to Blogger >>Layout >> Add a Gadget >> Add HTML/JavaScript >> Paste the code in the HTML  area and save the widget.
Congratulations: You have successfully added Google Translate button in blogger, go and check your site to see if it is working fine. It
