Yahoo! Pipes and Global GlassFish Aquarium ...

This post is based on two facts:

  1. It (Web 2.0?) has definitely started to change how we look at the Web. It is a collaboration of various technologies that is ultimately going to make the Internet a better place for everyone.
  2. Translation is probably still a topic of active research.

I am trying to suggest an approach to translate TheAquarium into various languages so that developers around the globe can experience it and get benefited by GlassFish technologies.

Yahoo! Pipes is an interesting technology but I am not going to delve into it because there are various resources that help you get started with it. When I looked into it, the first thought that came to my mind was to use it for GlassFish and then I saw the translation module. It sort of guided me into defining the pipes as shown in attached graphic.

TheAquarium Feeds in French 

This shows the pipe that takes the English feed from feedburner (which is rather weird) and then translates the titles into French and creates the list.

Here is the English-French TheAquarium Pipe I published.

My French friends are going to be happy with me.

I bet this technique can be exploited to translate the entire posts so that Global Developers are attracted to TheAquarium. We might not need the Language Buttons any more (although they serve a slightly different purpose).

Isn't the Web (ever) burgeoning?
