This is a great new webpart/widget that you can add to your site which will change the text to one of 12 languages.
I’ve thought for a while now whether we should be taking advantage of the multi language opportunities in SharePoint for those who have English as a second language (E2L)? SharePoint can help them deliver the information that they need/want in their native tongue but this can be a lot of work for the team who are in charge of E2L – translation of a page can take a lot of work. In some schools they don’t have anyone in this position full time and when they do have time they normally are helping a pupil anyway.
I’ve submitted to give the translator a trial on my SharePoint farm. I hope that this can help these pupils as they struggle to come to a new culture and for them to feel settled in at a new school in a new country.
When I’ve got access I’ll show a few examples in different languages.
