Crickey, today's task for the Comment Challenge is a real doozy - to comment on a blog that is written in a foreign language.
I became aware of Google Translator a couple of weeks ago following a discussion I had with a reader who was French. The idea of using a translator came from Sue Waters.
I tried to find a current midwifery blog written in French or Spanish but that turned out to be easier said than done.
Eventually, I found the blog of Ecohumanist which was written in Spanish. I was able to read her delightful birth story which got me thinking that I really should write my own two birth stories that I can gift my children.
Using a translator
This has been a very useful exercise. There have been a couple of blogs I have wanted to read but have been unable to because of language differences. Now that I am aware of Google Translator, that language barrier has been removed - not only for me, but also for people who want to read my blog but do not understand English. I would definitely recommend this tool.
