- Copy the HTML code in the box below and paste it where you want the link to appear on your page.
- In line 4, the variable omnilangFrom should be set to the language of the page to be translated. Just insert the corresponding 2-digit code (see table at right for a list of valid options).
For example, if the page is in French, change that line to: var omnilangFrom='fr';
- In line 5, insert the URL to be translated. Note that the script will not work in the unlikely case that the URL contains a single-quote.
- To suppress auto-initiation of the translation, change the value of omnilangStart from "yes" to "no" in line 7.
- Netscape seems to always insert a line break before the "Translate from French into:" link. If this is a concern, the only solution I can find is to force the links onto the same line by putting them in separate table cells.
- You can change the link text or make other minor changes, but be careful doing so: if you introduce even a slight error, the script may not work at all.
- Copying the code to the clipboard (Windows):
first click on the text box; then highlight "all" (ctrl-A); then copy the highlighted text (ctrl-C).
Pasting the text from the clipboard to your HTML page (Windows):
open the page in a file editor; put the cursor where you want the text to go; paste (ctrl-V).
