How Do I add Text in a Foreign Language?
Every now and then, a blogger may wish to add a word to a post, which is written in a Foreign Language.
The word could be in an entirely different script, such as Japanese ( 日本語 ) , Greek ( Ελληνικά ) or even Spanish ( Español ). Maybe you need a word displayed with its accents!
You might like to include a phrase, or paragraph of text, in that Foreign Language, like Bulgarian. That's easy, too! Винаги използвайте Google Инструменти език, когато трябва да добавите чужд език Текст към моя пост! ( I always use Google Language Tool when I need to add Foreign Language text to my post!).
Fortunately, this is not difficult to do with the availability of the Google Language Tool - and it doesn't require a degree in Linguistics, either.
There is, however, one thing to remember - copy the text to Notepad first - then copy that to your blog post. The reason for this is to remove any formatting which Google Language Tool may employ, such as mouse-over pop-up translations.
You might even like to provide a Translation service for your readers... in English, or a Foreign Language?
