Google translate language codes
Eg. URL translating en page to es
http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=en&tl=es&u=http://about.com
Define the web interface language to be English by adding
hl=en to the end of the URL and after the change the URL will look
like this:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en
When you use more than one setting code in the URL, you need to use
the & character between them. For example, if you also want to define
the search language to be English you need to use the & character
between the codes like this:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=lang_en
Because the above URL probably won't work so that the selected search
language will be used if you try do a search on that page, you also
need to add a search query (q=) to the URL, so the resulting URL will
be:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=lang_en&q=example
Remember to press Enter (or equivalent key) on your keyboard after
adding the needed characters.
