The easiest way to add GOOGLE TRANSLATE to your blog. I just got a message asking how I added the Google Translate widget to my truebluemeandyou sidebar. Since I hadn’t added Google Translate to my kids craft blog unicornhatparty, I thought I’d start at the beginning to show you how I did it.
1. I logged into my Gmail account that is linked to my Tumblr Blog. If you don’t have a gmail account there are other ways to add a widget, but this was the easiest way for me to add it. I then went to https://translate.google.com/manager/website/add and this is the screen you should see:
2. Click NEXT and choose the languages you want Google to translate, the display mode etc… This screen should look like this:
3. Click on GET CODE. You will need to go to your Tumblr blog and click on “CUSTOMIZATION” and then a panel will open up on the left hand side. Click on “EDIT HTML”. The first code has to be placed before the </head> tag and the easiest way to find it is to click on “CTRL” and “F” at the same time then type in </head> into the search box. To place the code where you want it to go, I find it easiest to click on “CTRL” and “F” to search for something close to where I want to see my Google Translator i.e. “My Other Blogs”. The final screen will look like this:
DIY Night Bike. From Instructables here. The trick is the type of paint chosen to paint the bike:
“The typical craft store glow paint is zinc-sulfide based in an acrylic medium, if it is colored pigments are used. The problem with using pigments is that these colors absorb most of the light, and thus the glow isn’t as bright. Instead, phosphorescent paint (used for this bike) is strontium based and glows 10 times longer and brighter. Impressive!”
