The Translator Widget is a right side tool used to add a Google or Microsoft translator widget to any page.
Note: Depending on your design, it may be possible to display the widget in the header/footer of your website throughout the site. If so, the Translator Widget will be located in the Navigation Builder | Home | Hompage Content page.
Access the Right Side Bar
Note: If no Right Side tools are used, the Main Body will use the full width of the page except for the left side navigation links. When tools are added to the Right Side, all tools in the Main Body will automatically resize to optimally fit the smaller width of the Main Body area.
Add the Translator Widget

Microsoft translator provides its own tool heading (so there are two here); allows you to choose the border and background colors for the translator (default shown here); the "<>" takes you to http://www.microsofttranslator.com/widget/?ref=MSTWidget; the envelope lets you share the translated page via email.
