Done. Please test.

The link takes a language pair plus help language.
The English link is en, en, en.

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by FGrose

Not done.

Looks like we'll need some way to extract the source language.

In Google Chrome, I have Preferences > Under the Hood, Translate check box that helps.

Reader can pick the source language once they reach the Google translate (error) page.

There is an "auto" feature, ie, instead of langpair=en|en it might be sl=auto&dl=en.

comment:5 Changed 13 years ago by FGrose

auto seems to work!

English link now has auto, en, auto

Thanks for the idea and research.

Adjusted to show help in English (consistent with others having help in the requested display language).

Adjusted sort to latin phonetic, sorta.
