There are translation tools (API’s) that can be implemented in websites and applications, but I recommend not to rely too much on them. You shouldn't translate the text automatically for users but leave it as an option. It’s possible a non-English person can still read English, and the message is almost certainly better communicated in it's original form. ...

If you support multiple currencies on your site, then use a drop down to enable shoppers to select the currency and/or the country. Ensure the option to choose the currency/country is highly prominent. If you can automatically detect the geographic location of the shopper, then set the default currency/country based on the location. Since automatic country ...

A good example could be taken from Aliexpress.com, which sells and ships worldwide. They do use Google translator to translate the whole page. I don't know any better solution to reach all languages.

This has been well implemented on a few sites by showing the original text, and the offering a button to translate the text with a well chosen icon (typically a globe).

So the question then becomes, what text to use. I've always found the lipsum.com and lorem-ipsum.info useful for this, as ...

If different tag types add obvious value to the end user then they will use them. 2. Tags should be optional Your system should work without requiring users to tag anything at all. Tags are optional bits of data that enhance user ...

Tags have all been learnt. There has been no tag symbols in common use (as a tag) for more than 10 years. That shows that tag symbols will be learnt if your service is popular enough. Of course the challenge is in getting your service to be popular in the first place. Assuming you would like to go with what already makes sense (I'd recommend this route), ...

If there is an input field for tags on your website I will suggest: Tags with nothing before it = tags Tags with @ = people Users do not learn any other symbol, they learn the @-symbol on facebook and twitter. And all the other tags without any symbol are just tags.

You can ask for the country (drop down) first, and having the correct format for that country, give an example of how you expect the phone number to be in (using hint text on the textbox could suffice). I don't know how it is for other countries, but websites that generally target US users and ask for phone numbers seem to always validate the phone number ...
