    how can I install Google Translate into word press and have it only pop up as a floating widget if the visitors browser is set to a language other than English?

    Thank you that really helped me with my translation issue.

    Great example ! Google translates "Home" into "Maison" (= "house"). You do NOT want your readers to view a google-translated version of your website, it will look ridiculous and unprofessional.

    Great example, but I'm having issues with the widget. I'm a native Dutchy, but when I translate my website to Dutch, it's giving me faulty grammar. Is there a way to edit the translation myself?

    Thanks in advance!

    How can I instead add Google Translate to my site and have the pop up prompt only trigger when it recognizes a non-English language browser?
    This was built into my old Google Sites website but not in WordPress.
