Google translate and Joomla
We have recently placed a new module upon our site to enable page translations using the Google translate service for the benefit of our foreign visitors.
Whilst working fine in Firefox (version 19.0.2), Opera (12.14) and Internet Explorer (10), with the translated page being present with our usual page layout format, we notice that when using Google Chrome browser (version 25.0.1364.172 m), that the information is translated, but the page formatting is completely lost. This may be a conflict with the inbuilt translation available with the Chrome browser.
There are a few aspects to this.
1. Google translate is not retaining the site 'format' hence the display is not as on the originating site.
