Happy Halloween! Here’s an update on the languages we support. These are supported in both the front and back end.
We want to bring together as many people as possible with the liveblogs on ScribbleLive and as such, supporting writers around the world has been our goal since day 1. Now we have taken our on-the-fly translation and extended it to our embeds.
If your site supports many different languages, you can now easily embed the same liveblog and have it translated to any major language. For example, you could be writing in English, but your Spanish visitors could see the liveblog in spanish, your French visitors in french, etc.
It’s as easy as adding ?lang=fr (where “fr” is the shortcode for any language) to the src of our standard iframe embed which looks like this:
For example, the same liveblog in french would be:
Below is an example of the same embed translated into 4 other languages.
We hope you like our new feature and please keep the suggestions coming. Happy liveblogging!
