When translating a URL (such as https://www.straatmakershop.nl/) via the free Google Translate tool (https://translate.google.com/) this often results in 'broken' pages. It seems Google is trying to 'optimize' the HTML by removing/adding HTML tags, which in many cases ends up breaking the layout or stop the CSS from being applied correctly.
- Does anyone have experience with the paid Google Translate API (https://cloud.google.com/translate/) for translating URLs? How well does it work?
- Are HTML tags being added/changed automatically? Can you easily change settings preventing them from being added?
- Do the pages look close-to-identical after translation? Any examples?
- Is it possible to generate publicly accessible URLs that you can link to (such as https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=nl&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.straatmakershop.nl%2F)?
