If you're working on the software why not have a translate button? https://www.dummies.com/education/internet-basics/how-to-install-google-translates-website-translator-plugin/ ]
We are not working on anything, these are ready mods that Loose Cannon is installing if they are ready available for SFM forum platform.

Translate as another language option for entire forum OR translate posts only?

If you have a "per post" set of buttons why not include translation? From memory Google translate can max out with very large text, per post is faster and more relevant? Regards

From what I see there is no 'translate per post' possibility but a Google Translation mod which help you to TOGGLE on/off translation for the website. So far what I know is Chrome already doing that so..

You’ll get two pieces of code that you need to place on your site. The first piece of code, which is the tag, goes in the header (that is, between the tags) of your HTML pages. The second piece of code, which is in

Shoutbox is not suitable for long expressions. Make a topic, put a link in Shoutbox.

I haven't used it but you seem to have to embed a banner in your page. Maybe per page?
I am almost positive that by banner you mean choosing language to language. First of all there is no such mod. And secondly, you Nigel of all people, who criticize Borzenkov for making the effort to translate with Google, why are you suggesting something that you know very well is not good for this case? Wasn't it you complaining that you are fed up with reading that Dubinina's sleeve is interrupted or something of the sort? You want this forum to be inhabited with Woodpeckers, Pancakes, Smokers, Angry, Queen, Revived etc. characters?

There is nothing about Italics on this link

Yeah I've seen that implementation maybe they would think about it. Add this to Board Information as feature suggestion maybe?

Whoops :P Sorry Teddy. I think we need a general topic for 'Feature Suggestions' for people who have ideas to share in order to help improving the community forum. People can also see it and discuss if it's really necessary or not. In the end you and Loose Cannon can consider if recommended feature is worthy or not.

Apparently Google is resuming support for the Google Translate website translator widget and making it free for non-commercial use.
