Free Translator API using Google

What?
So this is a quick article to get your Google Translation services working with your website.

Why?
At time of print, Google now charge for every 2,000,000 characters (2 million) every month.

Microsoft's Bing has added itself to the fray pretending to offer free services but in the small print, you will find they too charge the same price.

How?
The Google Translate API still actually exists. Just don't try to exceed your free quota:
  1. Visit http://translate.google.com/manager/website
  2. Sign in using your Google APIs developer's account (FREE).
  3. Copy the JavaScript they give you (eg. <script>...</script>) and paste this into a custom HTML module in your Joomla site.
  4. Add the meta tag they give you to your index.php file (under template folder in effect or your root index.php - wherever you have jdoc:include type="head")
  5. Done!
