Paul Pival, author of The Distant Librarian recently posted on the use of auto translation tools that could possibly assist when trying to reach international networks. He found the Fagan Translation Tool which offers code to add a link to your site that will take you to the Fagan Translator and theoretically translate your site. See my trial of the service in the links section of the right hand column when viewing this blog’s pages.

Google has been offering such a service for quite a while now with some Asian languages in a beta stage of development. As far as I can tell though, Google doesn’t yet offer any code to place a Google Translation link straight on your site – a big plus to the Fagan service.
