Google Language Translator
[resolved] How to get the languages displayed in their respective language? (6 posts)

    I was wondering how to get the languages displayed in their respective languages?
    For instance, if I am a German and don't know English, I would want to see the word "Deutsch" rather than "German."

    Hi StephPan, I'm really sorry for the late response. I have not yet added this as an option in the free version, mostly because I am not sure that I have control over doing this. I will check further into it.

    I just tested it with the Premium version, although I had to make a few quick modifications. The reason it works easily with the Premium version is because the HTML for the translator is placed directly into your website, so I have much more control.

    I will be checking into how I can do this with the free version, but it might be a week or two, but I will help you customize at no charge if you want to purchase the Premium version.

    And I have changed the demo of the Premium version to reflect your request on my site, so that you can see for yourself that I can do this for you.

    And also from your request - I will likely add this option in the Premium version here soon anyway - so you can also wait if you want.

    Not sure how long that will be.

    Thanks for making me think about this.

    Rob

    You can also see there is some lag between the time that the new language is clicked, and when the new language label actually appears. This is because when clicked, the plugin code is in English, so no translation is made until Google servers make the translation.

    I'm sure we could change the coding to allow for each language to display in it's native language up front, although this would be a little bit more work, and would be considered a customization.

    For example, I could display the "Italian" label in the Italian native language, then display the label "French" in the French native language.

    This is a great feature and will add this in the future, although I might only be able to do it in the Premium version, and it might be some time.

    Thanks! Rob Myrick

    Hi StephPan, did you ever come to a conclusion about how you want to resolve this issue - I will help if needed.

    Thanks!

    I'm in a group of students working with a non-profit organization that, for the most part, doesn't want to pay for anything.
    I will certainly ask them about buying the premium version though. Thank you for the follow-up! :)
