Translation widget for WordPress

We musicians know that music is the universal language.

However, when it comes to marketing our music, it helps to be able to speak more than one language.

With that in mind, today’s post is the code needed for creating a “Translation” widget (with nation flags) for your WordPress blog.

I didn’t create this. Other WordPress bloggers (who are far more tech-savvy than I am) did. And I’m passing on the love.

All you have to do is copy and paste the following code into a “Text” widget. For it to work correctly, you must then make one very simple edit to the code: replace “YOUR URL HERE” with (you guessed it) your blog’s URL. (I recommend using the “find and replace all” function one time, as opposed to typing in your URL 23 times.)

Until WordPress creates their own Translate widget, this looks like our simplest option. (Write to the good folks at WordPress to express your interest. Can’t hurt.)

In the meantime, I’m going to go play my guitar!~
