    Installation Help and Advice

    Hi,

    I have set this up and seem to get the error where Google thinks it's translating from english to English. I will try again later.

    That aside I started reading more here and a thread about how this was pulling traffic but then stopped caught my attention.

    Will, did your translated pages ever come back in the serps? You mention version 3 was weeks away last year but I still see you are on version 2.

    So is this still worth installing, traffic wise?

    Many thanks. Dave.

    Google deindexed some of my translated pages. I moved them to different URL's and they were reindexed. I lost the value of the inbound links which those pages had collected though.

    Google never explained why they deindexed just some translated pages.

    My bad.

    The feature which I thought would require v3 ended up being just this post: Configuring the Translation Script to Use Subdomains.

    Thanks for the reply, it's convinced me to give it another shot.

    I get the follow error on Google;

    Code: -2 (LANG2: Translator returned status '302' (req=http://translate.google.com/translate_c?hl=en&langpair=en%7Cforums&u=http://www.domain.com))

    If I copy/paste the URL is says I cannot translate from English to English.

    Yahoo give me this error;

    Code: -2 (LANG2: Translator returned status '302' (req=http://72.30.186.56/babelfish/translate_url_content?lp=en_forums&trurl=http://www.domain.com))

    If I copy/paste the url i get a white screen, yahoo doesn't load. Even http://72.30.186.56/ brings up a blank screen.

    Please help me out, thanks. Dave.

    Hi Dave,

    I have been struggling to get this script to work for some days now, but, like you, I see the massive potential for this script and will stick with it until I get it to work.

    I digress....

    With respect to your query, it looks like something is messing with the URL being sent to Google or Yahoo!

    Could you look at the contents of your translate.php file please? The code section I am interested in is at the top of the file, like this:

    Code:
    <?php
    //Version: 2.15
    
    //Define translation engines here
    $engines = array(
        'g'    => array(        'trans_url'        => 'http://translate.google.com/translate_c?hl=en&langpair=en%7C$lang&u=$url',
                            'timeout'        => 180,
                            'max_redir'        => 3,
                            'check_func'    => 'GoogleCheck',    //This function should determine if the translation was successful
                            'fixup_func'    => 'GoogleFixup'
                        ),
    //TODO: Yahoo translation requires an IP hostname, should code a workaround for this
        'y'    => array(        //'trans_url'        => 'http://74.6.146.244/babelfish/translate_url_content?lp=en_$lang&trurl=$url',
                            'trans_url'        => 'http://72.30.186.56/babelfish/translate_url_content?lp=en_$lang&trurl=$url',
                            'timeout'        => 180,
                            'max_redir'        => 3,
                            'check_func'    => 'YahooCheck',
                            'fixup_func'    => 'YahooFixup'
                        )
    );
    The piece of code I am interested in is highlighted in RED. Please confirm your code has this call...

    Hope this helps...

    Mine hasn't been changed, it's standard.

    Code:
    <?php
    //Version: 2.15
    
    //Define translation engines here
    $engines = array(
        'g'    => array(        'trans_url'        => 'http://translate.google.com/translate_c?hl=en&langpair=en%7C$lang&u=$url',
                            'timeout'        => 180,
                            'max_redir'        => 3,
                            'check_func'    => 'GoogleCheck',    //This function should determine if the translation was successful
                            'fixup_func'    => 'GoogleFixup'
                        ),
    //TODO: Yahoo translation requires an IP hostname, should code a workaround for this
        'y'    => array(        //'trans_url'        => 'http://74.6.146.244/babelfish/translate_url_content?lp=en_$lang&trurl=$url',
                            'trans_url'        => 'http://72.30.186.56/babelfish/translate_url_content?lp=en_$lang&trurl=$url',
                            'timeout'        => 180,
                            'max_redir'        => 3,
                            'check_func'    => 'YahooCheck',
                            'fixup_func'    => 'YahooFixup'
                        )
    );

    Hi Dave

    Hi Dave,

    it could be an .htaccess issue.

    What does the .htaccess file in your web sites root folder look like please?

    Code:
    http://www.computer-juice.com/.htaccess
    PM me the code if you are uncomfortable about posting it here...

    Hope I can help.



    EDIT:

    Thanks for that Dave. After having looked at the code you sent me I would 99% sure say that it is an .htaccess issue.

    ALL your URL's are being rewritten using a 301.

    You could try disabling the .htaccess file - by renaming it to htaccess.bak - via FTP and then seeing if your web site still works without it.

    The 301 redirect could just be an SEO measure to stop non www. URL's being allowed - NOT to sure on this though...

    I would say try it without the .htaccess file and see if that works, of course, just switch the file name back to .htaccess if it doesn't.

    Hope this helps...

    Yeah, all my htaccess does is rewrite non-www to www.

    Any further help welcomed.

    On my first go I was installing with some editing to remove the lang/ylang folder.

    Now I have decided to keep it simple and follow the instructions to the T.

    Yet I still get this error with Google;

    We are experiencing a temporary problem with the foreign language section. Please try again later. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Code: -2 (LANG2: Translator returned status '302' (req=http://translate.google.com/translate_c?hl=en&langpair=en%7Ces&u=http://www.domain.com/forums/))

    Redirects:
    And this one with Yahoo;
