Culture? Diversity? Exclusion? Snobbery?

I found a piece of javascript that can be dropped into a blog template, and can translate an English language post into a handful of other languages.  It puts a string of colorful national flag images on the screen that, when clicked, begin the translation. The other thing it does is show the original text when you mouse over an element, so you can double-check the original if the translation is funky. It’s very cool. (Found on the Digital Inspiration blog.)

I’m trying to figure out a way to add a snippet to to the code that will translate a Spanish language post into English.  When I do, I’m going to add the code to the sidebar of our grandCENTRAL blog, making our posts accessible in many languages, some of which are actually spoken in our community!
