      Description

      I know people poo-poo the quality of Google translations but I still think it would be a good idea to provide some way to easily generate a translation on-the-fly of all the English docs.

      Let's start with the Development docs at least, to try it out. There are no official translations anyway.

      All we need to do is insert this somewhere near the top:

      <div id="google_translate_element"></div>
      <script>
      	function googleTranslateElementInit() {
      	  new google.translate.TranslateElement({
      	    pageLanguage: 'en'
      	  }, 'google_translate_element');
      	}
      </script>
      <script src="http://translate.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>

          An example of what it looks like (and where I got the code): http://www.jhische.com/twitter/

          Quickly hacked this into the theme to display as a nav block, it appears to have broken the links above the wiki page (article, page comments, history, etc..)

          its on the docstest site: http://docstest.moodle.local/20/en/Main_Page

          Unfortunately I can't access http://docstest.moodle.local/. How about using http://docs.moodle.org/test/ for testing docs stuff.
