Google Language Translator
[resolved] Translation of menu/navigation items and long words (4 posts)

    Hey there...love this plugin! Just started using it for a client site but the problem I'm having is that when you use certain languages the words get long. This is affecting my menu items and is making them run into my logo. I know this will require some theme editing but I'm wondering, how can I go about controlling something like this?

    Here's the site: http://www.room2board.com/

    Cheers!

    Hi cyrjm, thanks for your message. I apologize for the late reply.

    My initial thoughts are to hide the overflow of the long words, although that means hiding menu items that you would want people to see (i.e. by hiding overflow that means the last few menu items would be hidden although you would see the longer menu text on "Surf, Sup & Learn").

    The other option is either reducing the text size or coming up with a shorter menu name, which is probably what I would do if I were working through this obstacle.

    Let me know if you like any of these ideas, and I will do my best to help you with them if needed.

    Thanks!

    No worries! I'm working on placement of the logo and menu to sort out this issue. I've also convinced my client to only have certain languages available so I can plan for the just those.

    Great plugin though! Ultimately we will be using a premium plugin since they will have actual Spanish/English content to serve up but in the meantime this is perfect.

    Cheers!

    Ok thanks JC! Please let me know if I can provide something in the plugin in future updates that would make it useful for your specific situation.

    Thanks! Rob
