      I found this tip over at paperpunchaddiction.com,

      If you ever need to translate a page, simply go to http://www.worldlingo.com and enter the page URL.

      I tried it and it works just fine. I was thrilled because I see a lot of beautiful things on the Pion blog and now I can read about them too.

        Awesome Linda!! Thanks. I always hope they have Google translate, even that translates things really funny sometimes!!

          Thanks Linda!!!!

          Linda, for the Pion blog, there is a 'Translate' button on the right side that will make the whole thing whatever language you want….. not all foreign blogs have it, but some do…..

              Not all sites have that feature. For those that don't (this sounds a lot more complicated than it really is), open Google search in a new tab. Go back to the page that you want to have translated and highlight and copy the entire url in the address bar. Go back to Google and paste in the search box and enter. You will get not only a link to the original page, but on the right there is usually an option translate this page. Click this and you will be directed to your original site translated to the language of your choice. Once in a while, you will get a mostly blank page with translating in the middle. This is a link. Click on that and it will get you there. I'm not sure why there is this extra step sometimes, but I'm not going to quibble as long as I can get the translation so easily.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
