New Translation Tool on the Blog [Site Update]

I was just thinking the other day while working on another post that this blog needs a translation tool.

I’ve had plans to do it for some time now, but couldn’t settle on a widget to use.

I now have a widget that’s recommended by others and I’ve put it at the bottom of the blog. It has flags and so on that identify which languages are supported. When you click on one of them, the page is translated into that particular language. I think it will work better than the other translation tools out there which only translate the portions of text you specify, and would mean more work for the reader.

So if you’re a reader from Europe or Asia, then rest assured that your language is likely supported here. There are a few, including the likes of Spanish, French, and German, as well as Chinese, among others. Those are some of the major languages on the planet.

This could serve to draw in more readership, as I all ready see some traffic from said countries, although mainly it’s still from North America and England.

In the future I might consider switching to another widget if more supported languages are needed.

  1. I just found you today at HubPages, and I left this comment there:

    This experience has intrigued me my entire life --- since I was a young child. I also have been frustrated by the lack of information out there, so I am pleased to find this HubPage and your blog.

    The word for this experience is sensillation --- I coined the word several years ago and have been using it ever since. This sensation is often described by the same words used in the definition of titillation: "stimulation by touching lightly; tickling" or "exciting another, especially in a superficial, pleasurable manner." However, the word titillation has now come to be so often used in a sexual or gossipy context, it can no longer be used to describe this type of experience which is a sensuous experience, but is usually NON-sexual in its nature.

    Thus, the new word sensillation --- a combiniation of 'sensation' and 'titillation'. Writing a definition for my word has been difficult, but this is what I've used for awhile: "The pleasurable, tingling sensation experienced initially in the head and then often spreading in waves down through the rest of the body. This feeling often occurs when one's head or hair is being touched, but is also a physiological response ascribed to a broad variety of auditory, visual, or gentle physical stimulation."

    I hope you all will begin using this word --- we certainly do NEED one for this experience! Include sensillations in your conversations on the subject. My husband and I like to use the best and correct words in conversation and in our writing --- and we use sensillations all the time. We tell any and all who will listen that this is the word to use to describe this widespread human experience.

Bookmarking and commenting only takes a little time, and you can also consider subscribing to my RSS feed for more!

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
