HOW TO automatically read your favorite English blogs in your native language

If you like reading blogs in English in your native language but find having to translate them EACH TIME with online translation tools a hassle, then this Google Reader tip will come as a big time-saver. This tip will help only if your native language is one of the 21 languages that Google Reader currently supports.

Here are the steps:
  1. Subscribe to the feed of your favorite blog with Google Reader
  2. In Google Reader, go to the Settings option that's on the top menu on the right
  3. In the Settings page, in the first tab Preferences, select your native language from the Language combo box.
  4. Click on the "Back to Google Reader" link to view the blogs you have subscribed to.
  5. If you have subscribed to multiple blog feeds, select a single blog Subscription from the Subscriptions panel on the left.
  6. In the detailed listing of Feeds in the main panel, click the "Feed Settings..." drop down that is in the section below the blog title.
  7. From the drop down list, choose "Translate into my language." (if you have changed your language in step 3 to a non-English language, you would see the message "Translate into my language." & all other labels in Google Reader in your native language)
  8. Voila! Now all the posts will appear in your native language.
If you have subscribed to multiple feeds, you would have to repeat steps 5 to 8 for each feed subscription.
