Smile Automatic Translations

Not sure how long this has been a feature but as someone learning a new language this is a great way to do so.

I think it's rubbish and gimmicky , you can install a firefox extension for translations if you need that sort of thing.

The header for this forum is ridiculous, with the adverts and now this, here's what you see when you refresh a page on a netbook:

Get a bigger netbook + adblock



P.S I have removed a couple of dead languages (Irish and Welsh) + the English translator as it is redundant.

ooo, controversial

Actually, I could do with an English translator for some of the stuff posted here

PS. 'Get a bigger netbook' ( ) is a great line, but not as classic as 'We're gonna need a bigger boat"

If you moved the navigation bar stuff up to the top tool bar in firefox you would gain even more real estate.

I think it's a nice feature, respectful of those who don't communicate in English. Was it an oversight, or was the Geek flag removed also?

Yeah, more real estate for Leigh to stick an even larger monstrosity in

PS don't post ilinks to images wider than 800 pixels, it's not netbook friendly either

You can see where this is leading, how many world languages are there? Also, flags are political, Fedora removed them from the distro a while back because of any possible negative political implications

The little colorful flags are simply a distraction. If you really want automatic translation, why not wrap it up in a "Quick Links" sub-menu?

The flags are in keeping with fedora policy.
