iWeb - Google Translation issue

I'm having an issue trying to add a Google Translation gadget to my iWeb site (via an iWeb html widget). iWeb appears to store the contents of the widget in a separate html file (widget1_markup.html), located in the "files" subfolder for the relevant page.

So, if I'm on my homepage (http://www.kcrem.com/Home.html) and click translate, I get properly redirected to Google, but with a blank translated page. The address bar shows me its trying to translate:

http://www.kcrem.com//Home_files/widget1_markup.html

instead of:

http://www.kcrem.com/Home.html

Any ideas how I can solve this issue?

Thanks!

The widget is inside an iframe, which is really part of a different file. The Google translation is translating the file the iframe points to (Home_files/widget1_markup.html). I don't know enough about iWeb to recommend a solution though except saying that it would work to get the widget out of that iframe.

The solution is to not-add the code in a snippet.
Instead you have to add the code directly into the page.

Try the solution provided on the following page

Giovannino - thanks for the suggestion!

MassReplaceIt works excellent. I'm using it to add/adjust iWeb metadata, add Analytics and insert the Google translation gadgets.

Aloha,

there isn't any easier solution...
That's already the easiest solution.
It may seem to be more complicated than it is by just reading the directions, but when you try it you'll find out that it's easy.

iWeb doesn't allow plugins. That's the main reason why there's no easier solution.

I myself would avoid such translation tools as the result is sometimes more difficult to understand than the original language is (even if one doesn't speak the original language).

Regards,
Giovannino
