There are lots of free website translation widgets available on the web. Website translation widgets are usually installed on your website by inserting a code snippet on your website pages. The widget itself is usually a language switcher (country flags or a pulldown menu) which allows users to select a different language. For example, Google and Microsoft both offer a free translation widget which visitors can use to translate your website. But there are several drawbacks to using these translation widgets.

<
  1. Poor translation quality. Free translation widgets rely on machine translation software which translates your website content with software. This often leads to poor translations which are difficult to understand or even worse, are incorrectly translated.
  2. Not indexed. Free website widgets usually translate the web content on external servers and don't store the translated content anywhere. That means that the translated web pages are not indexed on search engines, and that people will not find your website on foreign language keyword seraches.
  3. Branding. Most translation widgets have advertisments built-in. At the very least, a company logo is embedded in the graphical widget. Google takes branding to a higher level: it displays a banner at the top of translated pages that let you know who did the translation. And Google also displays the original website text in a popup window when you hover with your mouse over the translated content.

Using a professional translation service to translate your website is the best option. It eliminates all of the previously-mentioned drawbacks. But it can be expensive. 

But there is another solution which provides human-quality translation for free. It is called the GTS Website Translator and you can find it by clicking here.

The GTS Website Translator first translates your web pages using machine translation. Once the page has been translated, it is displayed in a side-by-side translation editor. The translation editor allows you to edit the translation if you are not satisified with the initial result. After you have edited the web page, you can save and download it as an HTML file to your computer. It is then easy to upload the translated web page to your server and make it part of your website.
