New Feature: In-Page Translation

As Queerty‘s readership grows each month, so too does its international reach. Which is why we felt bad keeping non-English speakers in Spain, Israel, China, and Saudi Arabia from enjoying our posts. So we’ve added a new feature: in-page translation. Rather than running to Paralink or Babelfish, readers can now click the “translate this page” link below each post to see the copy magically transform into words filled with Spanish enyas and Hebrew hets. It’s not perfect and perhaps never will be (but is powered by Google, so it’ll constantly improve), but if English isn’t your first language this might be a decent solution. Future hopes: Setting language preferences by default. We’ll see about that one, won’t we, IT guys? Let us know if you notice any bugs!

      What about letting some native speakers translate some of the main important stuff? ;)

      That’s nifty.

      I would also be delighted beyond measure if the red box ad for IGLHRC didn’t also involve a click-thru for tickets no matter where you clicked your cursor on the entire left side of page.
