Widgets for Play

Written by + on March 28, 2012 under Widgets

game widget is just one of the many ways to encourage readers to visit your site.  Depending on what niche your site specifically caters to, you can choose the most appropriate which you believe can get the attention of your target readers.  Installing the widget to your site usually only requires you to embed the tag and paste it where you deem applicable.

Educational game widgets are just what the name implies.  They are games that provide interactive and engaging scenarios for improvement of various skills, academic or otherwise.  Some games are even within the standards of formal learning centers offering topics that allow children to learn and practice problem-solving, comprehension, vocabulary building, and others.  This game widget is especially suitable for sites about kid’s learning and development. 

Most game widgets provide opportunities for players to engage in multi-player online games.  Aside from the fun and excitement that comes with games, there is also the chance to develop skills in interacting and dealing with other people in the online environment.  This is considered a good supplementary training ground for actual social interaction.

There are games that will involve not only skill but strategy and luck.  There are also solitary games that can be played by single players without competition from other players.  Others would require some artistic skill, run a race, catch a monster, or outsmart a villain.  Sports-oriented games are always available as well as those that simply tests visual memory.  Whatever game is chosen, site owners should take time to consider what would be most useful to their target readers so game widgets are not merely seen as other things to do but related things to do.

Instant Translation

Written by + on March 6, 2012 under Widgets

With just about everything going global today even in the contents of our readings, an instant translator can prove to be quite handy.  Writers are increasingly making use of foreign words and terms in their articles especially if using the English counterpart lessens the impact of the words itself.  Readers however, who are lost in the translation would like to have the ready option to check their meanings.  

Although there are several online sites that offer translations, wouldn’t it be more convenient if translations are made more accessible such as in widget form.  When such widget is found in the site itself, readers will not have to leave it to find the desired translation.  The WordPress Multi-Language Translator Widget offers such convenience. 

The Indo-European Translator Widget allows for the translation and transliteration between different languages including English, Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Traditional Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Maltese, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Welsh, and Yiddish.  It is a very popular widget which just proves that readers do not want to be limited by any language barrier.  Lack of knowledge in a language should not be a hindrance to getting the required information. 

Placing a widget that offers instant translation in a site is very much in keeping with the global trending to overcome traditional obstacles and limitations.
