Where, oh where, has the Translate Gadget gone??

It's gone.
And it won't come back.
Have you had this problem on your blog too?
Mr Blogger, may we please have this gadget back?
Frustrated. Sorry to all my international readers. Hopefully an answer will not be far off.
hugs

UPDATE:

From what I’ve been reading when you make any updates to your blog page (by layout or design) the translate gadget disappears.
Apparently this is because Blogger now allow you to set your blog to the language you want to read it in, and when you go to other blogs ‘Blogger recognises’ that it must change the language to the same as your blog for you to read. Um, I think not.
Hope they get this sorted.

Me too ~ I looked and looked for how to get the translate button back without success. Hope one of your followers will help. Thanks Jenny for posting, glad to know it was not the usual "operator error" this time :)

It is nice to meet you, I am sorry you have lost this gadget. And I would love to have your button on my blog, too.

I haven't lost my translate gadget yet but Blogger is continually changing things without my permission - terribly frustrating.

Sim, então configurei o computador para fazer a tradução automaticamente.
Boa sorte!
Um abraço!

Good luck!

Blogger does strange things. My About Me section disappeared and although it shows in layout I can not get it to show up on my blog. Very weird.

Been away for awhile and was wondering what was going on. Blogger has been unpredictable and maddening at times in the past. Not surprising they changed this, too. Like your new wallpaper on the blog, Jenny. Hugs.

I have lost mine too, on some blogs it says it is translating into English but nothing happens! others tre still being translated though

Belle said...

Mine is gone on your blog site, but I have bookmarked it. It does show up on some blogs. I am able to right click on my mouse, and then it has an option to change to translate to English which is my choice.

Jenny I use chrome browser and I click it with the right mouse button and follow the option to translate the page, is the only way to enteder since my parents only the youngest speak English but can barely spending. and when I write is the google translator, I know not true because we have many slang.
