Google Blogging Tip # 48: Setting Up Your Google Blog Gadgets, Part 18, Modified

This 'Gadget' ADDS a Language Translator (converter) to your Blog.
--->This Post has been updated, modified and changed to add two versions of this feature depending on your Blog's Template Background Color.

After I added my Language Translator to my Blog, see bottom of this Blog Page, I received several emails asking for the Code and why I picked this particular Gadget (there are many gadgets that perform the same function).

First this one is a short version, coverts the main Languages in world. It is highly rated by language experts who claim it is the closest translator (language converter with the least number of errors). Also many Gadgets only use a Country Flag, this one uses a Flag and Country Name.
Note: This particular Gadget style uses the Flags in a Vertical Format.

Steps:
1. Copy the complete CODE in the box, found on my web page link below.
2. Sign-in to your Blog.
3. Select 'Layouts.'
4. Select 'Gadgets.'
5. Select 'HTML / JavaScript' or 'Bottom Gadget'.
6. Paste complete code.
7. Save, View Blog, Test, make changes as desired.



Web Page Language Translation
Provide your Blog Followers, Readers, and Supporters access to your Blog and web pages in their own native languages by simply adding a Google Translate Mini Flags widget to your blog. Powered by Google Translate, this widget lets your visitors view your pages translated with just a click.

Still in its BETA phase, Google Translate currently offers the following translation pairs: English to and from Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese; and German to and from French.

Hi there Mr Blog Guy,

I just added this translator to my page and it works great.
Could you please do all the HTML Codes like this?

Also, I cannot get the Twitter Code to work. What am I doing Wrong?
