As I understand it, you have the module appearing in the right module position which is only on the front page. You also want it appearing on the left module position on the other pages?
Go to Extensions->Module manager->New and choose the google translate type to create a brand new instance of the same module type. Position this in the left module position and to appear on all pages apart from the home page menu item.

I see it is not a module. It is part of your template. My advice is to select 'Hide' from your template and find a google translate module at extensions.joomla.org to place in your left column.
You could also write to the template designer and tell them about the problem with their template setup.

I would suggest following the suggestion from andypooz. The implementation would be more elegant and you have the flexibility to publish the module anywhere you want and hence you would have more control.


As mentioned by andypooz, the translation drop-down is not a module. Rather it is created by the following statement that is available in the file index.php that is located in the directory \templates\malita-fjt.
Code:
   <?php if ($this->params->get( 'googletranslate' )) : ?>  <?php include "modules/googletranslate.php"; ?><?php endif; ?>


Notice that this statement is embedded within the div rightbar-rw.
Code:
<div id="rightbar-w">
<!-- Tabs -->
<?php if ($this->params->get( 'jtabs' )) : ?><?php include "modules/jtabs-content.php"; ?><?php endif; ?>
<!-- END Tabs -->
    <div id="sidebar">
         <jdoc:include type="modules" name="right" style="jaw" />
    </div>
   <?php if ($this->params->get( 'googletranslate' )) : ?>  <?php include "modules/googletranslate.php"; ?><?php endif; ?>
    </div>


You could try to remove the code that shows the translation drop-down within the div leftbar-w.
Code:
<div id="leftbar-w">
    <div id="sidebar">
        <jdoc:include type="modules" name="left" style="jaw" /></div>   
</div>

Note: If you edit the file, make sure to take a copy of the file.
