I spent the last couple of days authoring a new plugin, called Google Language Translator. This plugin allows you to insert the Google Language Translator tool anywhere on your website using shortcode. Settings include: inline or vertical layout, hide/show Google toolbar, and hide/show Google branding. Add the shortcode to pages, posts, and widgets.
My motivation for creating the plugin was the Google branding that comes with the Language Translator by default. I personally was irritated by the large toolbar at the top of the page, along with the branding that shows up directly beneath the translator drop down…..ANNOYING!
I ended up finding that Google allows you to remove the toolbar and branding, so I created a plugin that allows the user to turn these options on/off.
Please download the plugin and let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions for improvement.
