I’m Fluent in German
Actually, no I'm not. Not at all. Funny story…
If you have a blog or website, you're probably checking your HitCounter / SiteMeter frequently (come on, fess up). We all want to know how many visits we’re getting and what type of visits — web searches, other bloggers, “unknown,” etc.
The other day, somebody’s search brought them to my archived posts from October 2006 — translated into German. Seeing my own blatherings in a foreign language — too funny. I have no idea what I was talking about but I can rant and snarl in German with the best of them.
The comments on the posts are still in English, but all of the links are in German. The names of the sites might still be in English, especially if they're not translatable, but if you click on the link, all the text is in German.
And here (in case anyone could possibly be interested) is my entire blog — not just the October 2006 archives — translated into German.
But hey, enough about me. If you want to translate your own blog — or any website — into a foreign language, here's the menu. Or you can translate from a foreign language into English. You can select a website or just a block of text. It could come in handy for foreign-language newspapers. Knock yourself out.
