22 Must have Firefox add-ons for Bloggers (Blogging tip 5 of 22)



#5: Foxlingo add-on for Firefox

The tool is a browser embedded translator. It makes translating web pages very effortless, as the tool is part of your browser. It kicks into action the moment you navigate to apage that is not in your default language.

Concisefreeware, the authors say Foxlingo supports 45 languages and over 1000 different language pairs. It has features like translated search, auto-translation and text translation. It uses 35 free online translators. see list below as obtained from their website:

Worldlingo.com, Tranexp.com, Google.com, Abacho.co.uk, Altavista.com, Eigo-navi.com, Elmundo.es, Excite.co.jp, Freetranslation.com, Gencat.cat, Gts-translation.com, Ibm.com, Imtranslator.com, Internostrum.com, Interpret.co.za, Linguamatix.com, Lingro.com/, Lingvo.org, Nazgol.co.il, Nifty.amikai.com Ocn.ne.jp, Oesi.cervantes.es, Online-Translator.com, Opentrad.org, Sli.uvigo.es, Solvingmaze.com, Toggletext.com, Tr.voila.fr, Translatica.pwn.pl, Translator.live.com, Translendium.es, Vil-net.dyndns.org Yahoo.com, Xixona.dlsi.ua.es, 220.194.61.120
This tool is a definite must-have and it removes one of the the well-known barriers to communication, language. Any blogger using this add-on will have access to blogs and web material written in many different languages and that is a good thing. The only limitation to getting these blogs is the search engines that try to predict what you want and end up giving you websites written ONLY in your language! (Google take note).

One way around it is to go to a non-english version of the search engine like google France and search for your terms. Any results will come with the translate this page clip of google and even if you go direct to the site, Foxlingo immediately comes to the rescue.
