If you are a Russian/French/Chinese (or even American!) reader of this blog, the chances are that you are reading this not in the original English but in a fairly good translation into your own language. When I open foreign pages in Google Chrome it gives me the option to translate the pages into my own language.

I am generally pretty impressed with the job it does. Google has spent a great deal of money on this technology and continues to evolve. I think that one of the reasons for the popularity of web-based based is this ability to get it translated into any language instantly by Chrome (and the quality is steadily improving).

So if you are creating content and making it available in your language. You have the following options:-
