Want to help translate it to your language? Read on!
After communicating with Tjeerd, PA3GNZ, of the GQRP group and taking a look at his great Rockmite page, it occurred to me that it would be nice if the QSL Mapping gadget could automatically be displayed in the language of the gadget's user. As it turns out, Google provides an easy API for Internationalization. All that's needed are the translations of all the gadget's labels and messages into each language. Tjeerd was kind enough to provide the translation into dutch, so the gadget shown below will have labels in Dutch when viewed on a browser configured for Dutch.

Now all that's needed is the translation for every other language :) If you're so inclined, have the time, and know the translation of the following phrases, please add them to the comments below. I'll bring the gadget up in more languages as the translations are available! Thanks for your help on this!

The phrases are:
Transmit callsign
Receive callsign
Transmit power in watts
Distance
Miles Per Watt
Kilometer Per Watt
Locate
OK
Unmappable address format. Please re-format the address, test, and
submit.
Test
Submit




You can install this gadget on your own iGoogle home page, or on any web page by using the installer from Google.
