If you click on hyperlink in that MT widget, it takes you to a new new page with all content translated in Korean language like this http://www.adobe.com/kr/products/premiere-elements.translate.html

In this new translated page, you can see all the text in the page is getting translated from english to Korean language. Also you can see that the MT widget at the top now changes to show a hyperlink to take you back to original english page or you can provide feedback on whether you like the translated content or not.

All the translation is based on the new AEM 6.1 translation API (API Link) and all the translation is done using Microsoft machine translation connector which comes bundled with AEM 6.1 out of the box.

This accomplishment was made possible by a fantastic partnership between the Adobe.com and Adobe Globalization teams and Gcell technologies AEM team. Gcell technologies engineering team designed, coded and tested the MT widget.

Next blog post I will give an insight into how MT widget was created, as I was the one responsible for designing and coding this cool widget, stay tuned.
