Today The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt called Translate, and this is what it said:

Translate

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.

Not sure how to participate?

Here are the steps to get started.

And this is my response:

Translate

WordPress.com has a widget called Google Translate, that allows people to translate your blog/website into various languages, and this widget was announced on WordPress.com News in a post called Your Site, Now In Other Languages: Introducing The Google Translate Widget.

Besides finally being available on WordPress.com, things have gone pretty good for Google Translate recently.

There have been improvements to Google Translate like Neural Machine Translation which Google has a post about called Found In Translation: More Accurate, Fluent Sentences In Google Translate, and improvements to the Google Translate app like:

I hope that Google Translate, other free translation tools, and free services that offer unique approaches to translating like the crowdsourced translation option in Duolingo continue to improve as things like artificial intelligence (AI) improves and helps us to improve translation tools.

The end,

-John Jr

    Hi, John Jr! I selected the ‘Filipino’ language via the Google Translate widget! I’ll try Japanese next!

      Hello Flynn,

      Nice, so how good was Google’s translation in your opinion?

      *When I click your name it still is linked to http://flynnspaws.wordpress.com/ instead of https://flynnspaws.blog/ in your Account Settings under Web Address.*

      Thank you for commenting,
      -John Jr

          I thought so, Google is focusing more on improving a few languages first like (English, Spanish, French, et cetera), and so I imagine the translations for other languages will be worse at this time.

          Great, it is fixed, thank you Flynn. 👍
