Altavista Translation Tool

Altavista has a single line of Java you can place on your blog template, and the tool will let your blog readers convert your page to many languages.

This saves having to create your own workarounds, or add HTML links to your template.The tool works nice.

Suggestions

A couple of comments about the java-based code and box. It would be nice if there was a slightly smaller version of the translation button. All I really need is something tthat has the flags on it, and then enough space for Alta Vista to palce their name.

Second, and this is a nitnoid, but it is noticeable. The green color that Alta vista is not the same green on the Italian flag. The color for the Italian flag should be slightly less fluorescent. I’d encourage others to point out any concerns they have with the colors.
