Ever wondered how web pages read in Scots? Click the Scotland icon near the top of the page.

We have to give a special thank you to Nick at www.scotranslate.com for letting us build an extension that interfaces with their website.

Developer notes:

If you find a page that hasn’t been translated previously – it may take a little longer to load. We’ve tested it cross-browser but some older versions may not work, you should always keep your browser up-to-date (we love chrome).

At the surface we are just having a bit of fun but the tech behind this has real-world applications. The modern Web today often relies on dynamic content, syndication and integration with numerous 3rd party services so this has been an interesting and enjoyable little side-project.
