Question ID: 221895
I am looking to implement a quick and dirty solution on a global site
that can translate content on the fly. If you were to load a page in
english selecting say the 'French' icon would reload the page in
french. Do these services exist? Where can I find them? How much do
they cost?

Hello mailman,

There is a variety of products out there, with costs ranging from free
to $1000s.

“SYSTRANLinks is a turnkey website translation solution. SYSTRANLinks

“On-the-fly translation: the translations are automatically updated

The languages and features available depend on the level of service
The Bronze entry level costs $450/year, with no set up fee.  The
highest Gold 2 level carries a set up fee of $2,700 and annual charges
of $24,300.
A free trial is available. The Systran engine was used to create
Bablefish and Google’s language tools. 

Tranexp has a similar offering, Intertran, at prices from $995
“It will translate your web pages on-the-fly regardless of how many
changes/updates have been made. This way you can keep all the
different language versions of your web pages continuously updated and

Worldlingo costs from $29.95 for a single language to $99.95 for the
all (=12) language pack.

However, most amazingly, there is even freeware available:
“TransLingo helps you target these remaining 50% users by making your
website multilingual. It provides dynamic translation of your website
to and from over 30 languages!
TransLingo is Freeware, which means that it is free for both private
and commercial use. However, since TransLingo uses free translation
services provided by other companies like Systran, you should have
look at the Terms of Use of the translation service.”
You can see the system in action on the Translingo page, by selecting
a language from the drop down menu on the left.  This will show you
the page translated into that language.
