Do you check your stats?
OK, stop laughing. I couldn't even type that with a straight face.
Here's what I'm getting at. When you look at your statistics, notice where your traffic comes from.
All over, right?
If you're like me, most of your traffic is coming from Europe and North America. But a lot of traffic is coming from the rest of the world as well.
I was going to share this tool with you but when I started doing my research for this post I came across an interesting fact. Were you aware that, according to Internet World Statistics dot com only 31.2% of the world's internet users speak English. This means over 2/3 of internet users can't read this blog.
I found those numbers surprising. I guess I just never thought about it.
Think how many more readers you could open yourself up to with the simple addition of a translator widget. Think of it as a service you would be doing. You know, sharing your prime content with the other two thirds of the world.
I know a lot of you guys have already taken this step and, quite frankly, I feel a little bit guilty for coming to this realization so late along.
In this connected world we live in, a translator should probably be standard equipment for a website, shouldn't it?
