[Clipart] Fwd: RE : Translation?

This looks like it has promise for clipart translations. I did a search for
pomme and it came out as "apple" with the OCAL website inserted below.

Is there some sort of widget that we could do locally that translates the
search term? Can we link into google translate?

Ideally user preferences page would need language input field of course
(which would change the entire website to that language), but for starters
we could do a hack like this, where the tags are what they are, and the
search translates the term before hand.

This is a brilliant solution Andre. Could you please send me the php source
so that I can study it?

May be you can organize the search engine to feed words of a language to
Google translate before sending the request.

We have made a proof of concept of this to go from French to English.  It
was made with the beta site, one year ago.  We just patch it for the new
site.  With some more efforts, it can serve for those that don't really
speaks english.

Here is the URL ot this proof of concept.  Put a French word in it to test


Your comments will be appreciate.

Are there any plans for translating the clipart-library to other languages?
