Notes on Foreign Language Web Browsing/Translation Frames
This page is about the various HTML frames I made to make it easier to browse foreign language web pages. The frames were last updated Nov. 22, 2008 at about 2:00 PM.
In these frames, the narrow sidebar at left contains links, a search engine input form, and some input forms permitting you to look up words, passages of text, and/or entire web pages in Babelfish.Yahoo.Com, and sometimes other sites like WordReference.Com.
So, the next best thing you can do to retrieve the URL of any web page you're looking at in the right frame is:
- If you're using Internet Explorer, right-click the page, select Properties in the menu that pop ups, and highlight and copy the URL from the window that comes up.
- Or, if you're using Opera, right-click, highlight "Frames" in the menu that pops up, select "Copy address" from the submenu that appears, and then you'll be able to paste the address wherever you want.
- Or, if you're using Firefox, right-click, highlight "This Frame" in the menu that pops up, select "View Frame Info" from the submenu that appears, then copy the URL from the window that comes up.
I can't stand it when something that claims to be a new and improved "update" actually screws things up that were working perfectly well before.
So, just in case I accidentally messed something up, or the previous versions work better for you somehow, or you have some other use for the older versions, or are just curious, here's the older version of these frames:
If these frames help you learn a foreign language, and then you go on to make a whole lot of money by use of that foreign language, or, if you're rich already and these frames give you enjoyment, or are useful to you, etc. - please remember me and consider donating to me. :-)
Of course, I also would be extremely happy to get microdonations - since, for instance, if 1,000 people each gave me $1, I'd have $1,000, which I could really use. The best way to microdonate to me would be via the massive multiplayer online game Second Life. More details are on the donations page.
