This is the code we have put in our GLOBAL_HTML_WRAP.tpl template here (*):


         <div id="google_translate_element"></div><script type="text/javascript">
         function googleTranslateElementInit() {
           new google.translate.TranslateElement({
             pageLanguage: 'en'
           }, 'google_translate_element');
         </script><script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>

* Actually here we're running v8, so it's a different template, but I assume you are on v9.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
