    I am looking for some software or maybe a script or something that can automatically convert text html files with links in them to 5 different languages. But i need it to not change certain words in the text and not translate the links and anchor texts.

    So far the only way i can do what i want is to manually take the text and convert it to the 2nd language and edit what i want changed, problem is i have 2000 articles and need to convert them to 5 different languages. Thats 10,000 total. :oops:

    What i need to do is translate 2000 at a time to language #1,2 etc, load up the html files and get them translated with a feature where i can just set it to ignore certain links and keywords.

    Does anyone know of such a way to do this? Ive searched google all morning and cant really find anything.

    i think that is the best way to do them. Unless you got the money to get traslation software from companies like systran.

    great idea,
    I might make a C++ program to do that
    could get myself some money, except, I don't know anything about translation, but I think i could figure out how to make it so it ignores anything inbetween the <'s and the >'s and obviously the javascript/css/etc

    hmmmmph
    i guess it could get alot of money though
    someone should try it
