Hi all,
I am implementing a translation feature into a site. Index.php will include a form so that the visitor can click for an instant translation of the page. Has anyone actually done this?  I plan to use worldlingo as the machine translation tool.

I have this working with a static page, but need to code it so that each page's url is pulled into the form.  Does anyone know the variable for page urls?

UPDATE:

I was sure there had to be a better way to call urls without having to do:
Code:
<?php echo 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']. $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; ?>


It seems there is not.

I have now added a module for machine translations to my localsite and it works very well. I will report back when the site goes live so anyone who is interested can see it in action.

Unfortunately right now I'm not a programmer, and cannot help you on it, but I'm really too interested to understand better what you mean  :)

I have completed it and will soon have it up live on a site.  As soon as I have finished the site I will write out the step by step details of what I have done and include the code in case anyone else want to use it.

I will post the url here as soon as the site goes live so you can check it out for yourself.

I have just a few tweaks to do on the site to have it all behaving properly with Internet Explorer and then it will be launched.
Hopefully, I will have it up in the next day or two.  I will come back here and let you know.

Great, and maybe you can consider to make it as a module or a package.
Or just share your code ( if you oblige ) so that everyone here can contribute to what you've invented.

Sorry to keep everyone waiting. I have had some problems with the site I am putting this up on that have delayed me. I will get onto this within the next few days. Thanks for your patience.

Sorry I forgot to update this thread :(
The extension I intended to publish worked like a charm UNTIL the worldlingo site decided to block access to anyone that does not subscribe.
None of the other computer translation tools are very good and none of them offer the ability to have the translated site indexed by search engines, so I stopped work on it for now.

The fish is NOT a translating tool, but a multilingual tool, which is quite different.  ;)

the old fashioned way... I have not seen a translating tool that works aceptable, so i think we have to do it "by hand" with a multilingual tool until - yeah i thought that elpie would show us a new way...

EDIT: deleted outdated stuff...
