%HTMLlat1;]> Translation Wizard &gt; Revisions || Fagan Finder http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/changes.shtml A changes (revisions) log of Fagan Finder's 'Translation Wizard' tool. fagan_m@hotmail.com en-ca August 15, 2004 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ The default language identification tool had ceased to work; this has now been fixed. February 5, 2004 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ A problem has been fixed with the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=ktk">Kataku</a> translator (English to and from <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=id">Indonesian</a>), when translating text. September 3, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ A Thai keyboard has been added. It is still under construction, as Thai has compound letters I have yet to deal with. August 27, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ A listing of all the internal names for each language has been added to the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php">language pages</a>. Also links to the <a href="http://www.notam02.no/~hcholm/altlang/">Alternative Dictionary</a> are now on every language page, along with a warning that they include offensive terms. I don&#8217;t see why I shouldn&#8217;t include these links; we&#8217;ll see how many complaints I get. <em>Later:</em> links to <a href="http://www.rosettaproject.org/">The Rosetta Project</a> are now on all language pages. Same goes for links to the <a href="http://dir.yahoo.com/">Yahoo! Directory</a> pages. August 25, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ Two new and related tools today. The first is very simple: <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/id_trans.php">Translate &amp; Identify</a> is a framed page where one frame is the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/identify.php" hreflang="en">language identification</a> page and the other is the main Translation Wizard page. The second is more complex. I think it is fairly powerful, and I hope not too difficult to use. It is a <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/bookmarklet.php" hreflang="en">Bookmarklet Maker</a> which allows you to create a custom bookmarklet for accessing the Translation Wizard with. As always, I have made lots of minor changes, including a fix for the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=ktk">Kataku</a> translator when translating text. August 21, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ New tool for webmasters! Put a <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/this_page.php" hreflang="en">&#8216;Translate this Page&#8217; link</a> on your web pages. August 19, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ I believe I have fixed one of the last remaining encoding issues. Characters with diactrics now work appropriately when using the dictionary lookup feature. August 19, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ New feature today! The <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/identify.php" hreflang="en">Language Identification</a> page is up, in beta. You can also access it directly from the main <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/">Translation Wizard</a> page. You can read the details on the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/info.php#results">information</a> page. August 18, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ Now you can save your settings via a button on the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/">Translation Wizard</a>. I have added this information and a link to <a href="http://nlp.petamem.com/dia.cgi" hreflang="en">PetaMem Diacritisation</a> to the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/info.php" hreflang="en">information</a> page. Also I have improved the look of the language listings on the individual <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php" hreflang="en">language pages</a>, which are now not quite so huge. August 15, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ I completed a new feature today, one which you will probably never use if you are reading this <span style="background-color:yellow">:-)</span>. <a href="http://www.google.com/">Google</a> is the only search engine that includes the Translation Wizard so far (which is actually pretty quick). If you do a search on Google, or one of several other Google-powered search engines, that includes languages in the query, and arrive at the Translation Wizard main page or one of the language or translator pages, you will see the feature. Actually, if you arrive at the main page, you won&#8217;t even notice the feature, which is the way it should be. Take a look at an example language page, <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=de">German</a>, or translator page, <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=ewg">EWGate</a>. Now try <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=german+spanish+translation+faganfinder">this Google query</a>, and click on the links to pages on the Translation Wizard. See the feature? It can be even more advanced, such as with <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=translation+from+italian+to+english+and+icelandic+faganfinder">this Google query</a>. August 13, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ Quite a few additions this update. I added the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=fdt" hreflang="en">Freedict</a> single-word translator. I added information for web page translators on whether they can handle frames, and whether links on them go to translations to the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php">tools</a> pages and translation results page. The <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=th" hreflang="en">Thai</a> language has been added, and five Thai translators, one of which can translate web pages. <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=par" hreflang="en">Pars Translator</a> has been added, which can translate text from English to Farsi. If you enter a URL, the Translation Wizard will extract the text and have that translated. <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=arc">Arcnet</a> has also been added, which can translate single words between several Asian languages. Most of the encoding issues have been fixed, and you should now be able to enter text in any of the supported scripts, including diactrics with the Latin script. Two of the Thai translators include audio files of words. This information is now available on their respective pages and on the translation results. August 11, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ &nbsp; &nbsp; A couple of additions today. A new language has been added, <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=eu" hreflang="en">Basque</a>, along with three single-word translators for it (between Basque, English, and Spanish). [Warning: technospeak] I added the ability to include translators that use POST rather than GET. I&#8217;ve done it in a round-about way, but it works. Because of this, I have added <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=arg" hreflang="en">Argjiro.net</a>, a single-word translator between English and Albanian. On the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php" hreflang="en">language pages</a> I added links to jump within the page if it gets long. The Dictionary Lookup feature (for translating more than one word using a single-word translator) now includes links to the appropriate translator pages.<br /> &nbsp; &nbsp; The searching by language feature on the language pages has been upgraded quite a bit. Now you can search in the Open Directory (and Google Directory), Google, AltaVista, AlltheWeb, Inktomi (via HotBot), and even the <a href="http://www.wikipedia.org/">Wikipedia</a> in that language if there is a large one. Included are the twenty largest Wikipedias with the absence of English and Interlingua. August 9, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ I have added the three characters which were missing from the Arabic keyboard, characters used in <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=fa" hreflang="en">Farsi</a>. I have added a <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php#options" hreflang="en">note about topics and options</a> to the Translators page, and also alongside each translation result on the main page. Today I read up on how to sort arrays in PHP, and so have implemented sorting in about six different places on the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php" hreflang="en">language pages</a> and the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php" hreflang="en">tools pages</a> August 8, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ I have added the single-word translator <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=log" hreflang="en">LOGOS</a>. LOGOS is a different sort of translator than most of the other ones already included: it has <strong>many</strong> languages, and can translate between <strong>any</strong> two of them. I wrote a fair bit of new code to handle translators like these, and I will probably change <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=wl" hreflang="en">WorldLingo</a> and <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=int" hreflang="en">InterTran</a> to this format at some point. Note that LOGOS can actually translate more languages than are currently listed on the Translation Wizard. As I add these languages, they will become available. August 8, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ Each <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php" hreflang="en">language page</a> now links to the relevant <a href="http://www.wikipedia.org/" hreflang="en">Wikipedia</a> article and <a href="http://www.languages-on-the-web.com/" hreflang="en">Languages on the Web</a> links page. August 7, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ I have added two new single-word translators for <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=et" hreflang="en">Estonian</a>, for translations to and from English and Russian. I&#8217;ve also noticed some encoding problems when using diactrics, so I will have to look into it.<p></p> Minor error fixed, <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/tool.php?show=wl" hreflang="en">WorldLingo</a> now properly translates <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=zt" hreflang="en">Traditional Chinese</a>. August 7, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ I have added four new single-word translators for <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/language.php?show=sk" hreflang="en">Slovak</a>, including translation to and from English, German, and Russian. One of these required me to enable the display of translators with diactrics in their titles, however I haven&#8217;t gotten this to work for Cryillic letters yet, which is required for one of these. August 6, 2003 http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/ Offical beta launch of the <a href="http://www.faganfinder.com/translate/" hreflang="en">Translation Wizard</a>.
