Adding the Google AJAX Translation WordPress Plugin

I recently added the Google AJAX Translation WordPress plugin. Readers can now translate my content by clicking the Translate link under post, comment and page titles and selecting their language from a popup menu. The plugin then replaces the original English text with a translation provided by Google’s translation service without requiring a page refresh to contact my website’s server.

I like this plugin’s lightweight, translation-on-demand approach: the plugin only translates what readers want translated. On-demand translation reduces system resources by eliminating the processing and storage required to maintain a cached, pre-translated copy of every post and page, which must be re-translated after editing.
