Google Translations to Other Languages

October 2, 2016

1. Couple of days ago, I installed the capability to translate the whole site into different languages. A different language can be selected in the “Google Translate” button right above this post.

  • I received input from a coupe of people. Based on those, it seems that translation is 60%-80% good for Chinese and Hindi translations. I also reviewed the Sinhala translation and agree with that assessment.

2. The main problem is that with “word-to-word” translations, meanings can get lost. So, please use the translations only if necessary. For example, it may able to provide translation of some words that are not familiar.

  • Therefore, it is a good idea to use the English version as much as possible. I really worry about meanings getting lost in the translation.

October 15, 2016: I have activated all available languages. The PRINT button at the bottom of each page can print in some languages other than English.
