I18N Blog Perfection

November 20th, 2007 by Moti Karmona | מוטי קרמונה · No Comments

Central Bank of NigeriaDue to the increasing demand (~300% in the last week) for I18N support in my blog, I decided to take action.

My pragmatic ROIDB (ROI Driven Blogging) approach brought the Google-Translate-Widget to the left pane of my blog with ~20 minute copy-paste work (this post included).

I almost tripled my blog exposure from 350 Million (English) Internet users to 1 Billion* internet users (85% of the world internet users) and I also hit the pareto princple (80/20) jackpot on the way :-)

But… I can’t really use the “I don’t have enough traffic due to I18N readiness” excuse anymore and the 3 people that allegedly asked for I18N support only wanted to “help” with my desist Nigerian cousin will arrangement so I am not so sure it was worth it after all…

Feel free to get a taste of this I18N perfection using my new left-pane state-of-the-art translator widget and with my personal favorite Spanish Blog Flavor


* 365 English + 184 Chinese (!!!) + 101 Spanish + 86 Japanese + 59 French + 58 German + 47 Portuguese + 34 Korean + 31 Italian + 28 Arabic = ~1 Billion Internet users (Based on internetworldstats.com statistics)
