Translating the site into Dutch

Good post? Please, share it...

So, today, I made a good start on the problem of how to make my site viewable in Dutch, considering that my Dutch is far too poor and the cost and hassle of translating the entire site would be prohibitive.

After many hours of research, development and testing, I am fairly satisfied with my simple solution.

I have added two links to the module which appears on the left of every page and displays an image of a combined Dutch and Flemish flag. One link opens the site as a Google translation and the other as a BabelFish translation.

Of course, there is also the existing link to the page that explains why the site is mostly in English (written in Dutch, of course). This link is now from a line of text, reading “Over het gebruik van de Nederlands taal op deze web-site” (“About the use of the Dutch language on this site”).

This is far from a perfect solution, but it’s not bad, nonetheless.
