Hello In ALL Languages?

No Gravatar

This is a strange little post to let you help me test something. I ran across an interesting WordPress plugin called “Hello In All Languages”. I’ve in stalled it and I’d like to see if it works.

So, without further chatter from me, here is our friend from Wewak, Jane Tempsett, saying Hello to you.If it works right, you should see Jane above greeting you with the word meaning hello in the official language of your country, based on your IP address.

I can think of several ways that this might not work, especially if you are “hiding” behind an anonymous proxy server. Nevertheless, please comment if you feel inclined. If it works, please tell me. If not, please tell me anyway.

Now I’m waiting for someone to make one that says “Goodbye”.

    We are a bilingual country here so I guess I am seeing bonjour as well as hello and also whole lot of “top of the morning to you” on this auspicious day. Happy Saint Paddy’s day to you and all your friends…

    Here I get a ‘zdravo’, that means it is WORKING!

    So, Ron, you’re getting sometimes English and sometimes French? I didn’t expect that! Did you actually get “top of the morning to you” or are you pulling my chain again?

    Okay, Alex. That’s good to hear. It is a rather cute little gizmo. I think that I’ll start using it regularly. Thanks for confirming that it works.

    Doesn’t seem to work for me (in Canada). I tried it with both FF and IE … turned off the popup blocker in IE … nada.

    Thanks, Walt.

    What word do you see in the sentence, “So, without further chatter from me, here is our friend from Wewak, Jane Tempsett, saying Hello to you.”

    It should be English, but might be French. Is there anything there at all?

  7. Walt Says:

    Ah, I get it (I usually do eventually)! I was looking for some magic inside the image. Yes, the text says “hello”.

    Ha! It’s working. I wish that I’d get some more input from other places. I’ll have to try using it in some more posts.
