This is a partial list of translators.

I know there are more. If you weren't listed, contact me, I'll add you in.

Note: I was contacted in October 2011 by the plugin team at Automattic and requested to remove a specific translation link. Automattic is concerned that translations are being provided to obtained valuable SEO backlinks.

As a result, I'm delinking all commercial links from the hRecipe plugin. If your company provided a translation and you want it removed as a result, I'll be happy to do that, just let me.

How hRecipe benefits you

The magic happens using "microformats," technology invisible to you, but friendly to search engines.

The hRecipe plugin shows a popup windows with text fields and text areas that allow the author to conveniently enter the various parts of the hRecipe microformat, then inserts a formatted recipe into the page or post. The formatting has the hRecipe class specifications.

There is a growing list of options to control how your recipes are displayed:

  • Ingredients lists formatting can be either by number or by bullet point.
  • The background color of the formatted recipe can be specified to match or offset the background color of the enclosing web page.
  • The display text for many sections of recipes may be specified.
  • International support is growing rapidly.
