    I found something that can be a problem. When you copy and paste the script text there are some blank spaces that don't have to be there. Actually the copy/paste action change every new line in a blank space (put a blank space in the end of the first, second... line). The problem is that some lines don't have to be separated by blank space.
    In our case the first and the second, are not ...language%20(2% 20chars%20abbreviation)... but ...language%20(2%20chars%20abbreviation)...
    The same problem is between line six and seven: ...'&sl=a uto&tl='+lang;... is ...'&sl=auto&tl='+lang;... and line 9 and 10: ...window.screenY||windo w.screenTop... is ...window.screenY||window.screenTop...
    I found also in line 9: ...window.screenX||wind ow.screenLeft... it's window.screenLeft
    and in line 10: ...width=640px,resiza ble=1,scrollbars=1... is "resizable".
    These errors are enough to not to let the bookmarklet to work.

    Ok, I found the exact problem: you can't post in the forum more than 50 chars that are not separated with blank spaces. So if you post 60 chars without spaces they will be displayed as "50 + ' ' + 10".
    If you post some code it's a very bad thing actually.
    Hope in the future will be useful to everyone to know this problem.

    Yeah, it even does it if you put the entire thing in CODE tags, which you'd think would be an exception.

    There's a translator here on a thing called Cleeki along with a few other cool things (its well worth the look!!)...

    It was originally posted here, but people seem to have missed it ...

    Cleeki (superior alternative to IE8 Accelerators) is now for Google Chrome

    Stamga ... Its well worth putting on the sticky ..

    Overview

    (Taken from the web site - not my words !!)

    Cleeki is a perfect pal if you need to launch search/share/publish tasks based on any content in your browser. Currently the following channels are default in Cleeki's Chrome addon:

    Google: inlcuding web, image, video, blog, books, and spell check.
    YouTube: an all-time favorite channel
    Google map: including draging, zooming, direction, and local search.
    Amazon: including the deal of the day on amazon
    eBay: never miss a hot item!
    TheFreeDictionary: an owesome online knowledge website
    Google translation: including both paragraph and webpage translation, with two highlighted features: it automatically recognizes the source language, and remember your target language. So just select any text/page, and it will do the translation automatically.
    SearchMe: a very cool visual search channel
    Hulu: watching ABC's high-quality online TV programs
    Share It: provide content share/publish via SocialTwist, supporting all mainstream blog/social/IM/email/bookmark services.
    SlideShare: search slide presentations.
    Wikipedia: search wikipedia articles
    Technorati: blog search
    Yahoo! web search

    It's worth it just for Wikipedia and a dictionary :-D

    Well, if people are "missing" it maybe there is a reason...
    Talking about translation ONLY surely the bookmarklet is better because:
    1) It's faster. I don't need to wait for the icon to appear (and sometimes these icons are so messy, imagine if you don't want to translate but you simply want to do a copy/paste) or summon it holding the mouse.
    2) Doesn't eat any resources. No need of explainations.
    3) You choose the destination language. If you speak 5 languages you need some flexibility...

    As your fairly new to this forum you probably don't realise that one of the things that happens here a lot is that members try out new extensions and user scripts and report back, hence my surprise.

    Even though I may not have a requirement for a particular item I always try them out so that I can add constructive criticism, if I feel it will make a positive contribution to the thread ...

    For information, the Cleeki icon (which I'm assuming your referencing) is instantaneous ...
