Human-Assisted Machine Translation

Update: Something about the latest version broke things, so I have diactivated the translation plugin for now.

Readers may have noticed that I have added an easy automatic translation feature on the sidebar to the right—just click on a flag, and wait a few moments as the translation is made on the fly. The interesting thing about this system is that it allows human corrections to its sometimes really bad translations. So, if you speak a language besides English, and have a hankering to help translate these pages, just create an account, and click the “translate” checkbox under the flags to help out.

I picked the set of languages based on reader demographics over the last year. If you don’t see your favorite language included, just leave a comment here, and I should be able to add it.

Hooray for machine translation!
