Since we launched ScribbleLive a few weeks ago, we’ve been excited to see a lot of people from around the world starting to use it. I built the code from the ground-up to support other languages, but we weren’t planning on rolling anything out so soon. But because of all the great interest, we decided to launch our first international feature.
Now when you are blogging in any language, people from around the world can watch along through our new on-the-fly translation feature. We can translate to English, French, Spanish, Italian and German for now. More to come later.
Say you are blogging in Italian, visitors from around the world can choose a language from the “Translate” box, and all your posts will be translated to that language for them. Not only will it translate all the posts that are already there, but it will translate whatever you type when it appears on their screen.
The translation may still have a few bugs to shake out, but I’d love to get your thoughts. I’ve been catching up on the Italian WWDC blog myself
