This thesis describes an application, AutoLex, for translating dynamic content on websites that use the Django web framework. AutoLex retrieves translations from the Google Translate service., stores them in a database using a single table, and serves them via a user-defined accessor. In doing so, AutoLex offers website owners a fast. cheap way to translate large amounts of content and to enable multilingual communication between users. Future improvements will include automated accessors. hooks for integration with caching applications, and improved translation generation and display.
