Bilingual Bookmarklets               STILL IN FIERI, EXPERIMENTAL    Version .04 ~ Updated 6/JUL/2005

(`.  BILINGUAL DISPLAY BOOKMARKLETS .)

Ah! Why does it have to be so difficult to have two linguistic versions of the same document scrolling alongside? We tried to come to the rescue with a "quick and dirty" solution...

Instructions

These "bookmarklets" will allow anyone that uses our googlex forms to obtain a synchronized bilingual display of a given document.
To 'install' them, just rightclick on the ones that are of linguistic interest for you and add them to your favorites. Then, when you are viewing a document from one of the EU-servers (not from google's cache), just click on the memorized "bookmarklet" and the javascript code will kick in and give you a bilingual display. Note that there is a bookmarklet for each "from" language, because they work when you are already viewing a document. So if you want bilingual displays from -for instance- english documents into whatever other language, bookmark the "FROM_ENGLISH" one. When you use it, it will reduce to the left of the screen the english document you had found, and synchronize any other linguistic version you may wish on the right of the screen - as far as you use the correct language indicator in the bookmarklet's option box:
en, fr, de, it, nl, es, el, pt, sv, da, fi, cs, et, lv, lt, hu, mt, pl, sk, sl
The arrow keys will move both documents in synchro, your mouse's little wheel will move just one of them.
Please note that the code works without problems with the (very good and quick) Opera browser, that you can (and anyway should) http://opera.com/download/. These bookmarklets do not work (yet) for MSIE.

These bookmarklets start when you are already viewing a document. So if the document you are viewing is -say- in english, use the _FROM_ENGLISH one
