websites in multiple languages?

Discussion in 'Buying Overseas Property' started by Aegean Emerald Properties, Jul 29, 2008.

  1. Hi there!

    hoping some of you may be able to recommend a good wesite design and hosting service who can provide a website in several languages?

    I have a few names and quotes already, but I find that recommendations from past customers are always helpful.

    any of you able to recommend a company to do this? (bear in mind i want one who will provide a good translation into the other languages from English!)

    many thanks!:)

    Have you ever used any of those auto-translation scripts with any success? I've been considering trying those out just to see what the interest is like for other countries, but I'm not sure how reliable they are.

    I realize that they are nowhere near as good as a real human translation, but are they so bad that they'd do more harm than good?

    => Yes I can confirm they are THAT bad!
    (I ve been working on corporate multilingual software for 10 years)
    Do not use automatic translation unless you make it very explicit (big red header, font 50) that the translation is provided only as a guide

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Actually, I've been learning German for a while now - I'm only at the most basic tourist level, but I'm starting to spot bad mistakes in the online translators already, so I dread to think what it looks like to a native!

    I think I'll just use humans for translation, when it's needed.

    I used one and the translation was so awful that I got rid of it. Sorry!
