http://freelatesttechtips.co.cc/2010/05/12/quickly-and-easily-translate-websites-via-google-translate-using-a-bookmarklet/

One of the advantages of Google Toolbar is the ability to quickly and easily translate websites using Google Translate. The only problem is most of us despise toolbars (including me) and refuse to install any – from Google or other sources – on our computers. Yet, with the Internet connecting people from all around the world, most of us have probably stumbled upon a non-English website and probably make use of Google Translate to get past that language barrier. So, what would you give me if I told you that you could enjoy the convenience of Google Toolbar’s integration  with Google Translate without having to install or use Google Toolbar? (I have always wanted a pretty pink pony; just kidding.)

Translate is a bookmarklet that allows you to quickly and easily use Google Translate to translate websites:

All languages
supported by Google Translate are available
for you to select to translate to:

Since Translate is a
bookmarklet,
you don’t have to install anything to use it (i.e. you are not forced
to install Google Toolbar). To use Translate, all you have to do is add
the bookmarklet
to your bookmarks/favorites
bar and click on it whenever you want to use it. If you ever want to
get rid of Translate, simply delete the bookmarklet
from your bookmarks/favorites
bar and it is gone – no need to “uninstall” it
because you never “installed” it
in the first place. You must have JavaScript
enabled to use a bookmarklet,
though, so if you are one of the people that disables JavaScript
you are out of luck. (Most people have JavaScript
enabled, so unless you specifically disabled it, don’t worry about it.)

To get Translate, click + drag [Translate] to your bookmarks
bar if you are using Firefox, Chrome, or Opera, or if you are using
Internet Explorer, right click [Translate], select “Add to Favorites…”,
select “Favorites Bar” for “Create in”, and click “Add”.

[via marklets via Cogizio]

That seems a little familiar…

Oh, the site that was :(

i just had a look at the site and ALL of its articles ARE STOLEN from other sites, its newest are copied from the website Makeuseof.com i read them little over an hour ago on the website so i recognised them immediately, is there anyway to report this?

 

If i were you Ashraf i would report it if possible, it’s unfair that that site is using articles from other sites, without even giving credit or links to the actual site, they have just been copied completely.

 

I hate Copy’s!!!!Yell

 

UPDATE: some have also been taken from Lifehacker.com, i just read these exact articles an hour ago!!!

Difficult, to be sure…..but it shall be done!!

The thing about the ones from Lifehacker is that they are under Creative Commons, so they can be copied.

@Conn09: The only way to “report” this is to submit a DMCA notice to the webhost that is hosting that website demanding that the website be pulled. Finding out how is hosting the website will be tricky since it is using a CO.CC domain, but tracing its IP should do the trick.

@Locutus: dotTech’s stuff can be reprinted under CC too. However, with dotTech and Lifehacker, the original source must be credited and articles can only be used for non-commercial purposes only. Clearly that website does not do that.

You changed it.  Surprised When was that?  Wink
They’re bad people.  At least the [Via Cogizio] was left intact, or I never would’ve found it. Cool

I’m not sure how much this will do, but I gave them a poor rating on WOT Laugh

@Locutus: I changed it long, long ago. I believe back when I went from PMnet -> dotTech. Read http://dottech.org/fair-use-policy for more detail.

This site probably doesn’t have a rating of its own on WOT and isn’t very popular because the ratings for http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/freelatesttechtips.co.cc and http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/co.cc are the same and subdomains inherit reputation of domain.

Now wait, my comment never showed up for co.cc, it only showed up on the offending site (didn’t have the time to check the domain name again Laugh)

I meant the ratings and not the comments (there weren’t any comments before you posted, adding to the proof that the site isn’t popular)

The site isn’t that popular but it gets a decent amount of traffic. Alexa ranks it at ~500,000 which is about 100-200 visitors a day I believe.

I’ve posted a comment on the offending post. Hope they will respond soon or I really will file a DMCA notice as I said in the comment.

@Al: Don’t yell so loud. You’ll damage the Boss’s ears, and that would lead to disastrous results. Wink
