Ever want to stop Google from translating your pages? You know, when you view a page in Google and it says, "translate" this page. Well, now you can.
A Google Webmaster Central blog post explains Google has added a new class or meta tag, that allows you to block Google Translate from translating a whole page or a specific portion of the page.
To block your whole page, add this meta tag to your header element:
<meta name="google" value="notranslate">
To block specific content, wrap that content in class=notranslate, for example:
You can translate this content <span class="notranslate">but don't translate this content</span>
Webmasters are pretty happy that Google is enabling this feature. I do wonder how many webmasters will actually use it.
