Hi, I'd like to use Google translate Element ->

I tried to do it 2 ways:

1) I just copy and paste whole code to template

<div id="google_translate_element"></div><script>
function googleTranslateElementInit() {
new google.translate.TranslateElement({
pageLanguage: 'pl'
}, 'google_translate_element');
</script><script src="//"></script>

2) I add the <div id="google_translate_element"></div><script> to the and JS to the Page Controller

function googleTranslateElementInit() {
new google.translate.TranslateElement({pageLanguage: "pl"}, "google_translate_element");

It works in IE 8.0 but doesn't works in FF, Chrome, Opera...
Have you got any ideas... the code works on other not SS sites :(

site is here ->

I think I see the translate stuff just fine. See attached screenshot:

Did you flush the template cache and empty your browser cache? If you haven't, empty your browser cache and do this:

By the way, tested in Mac FF and Mac Chrome.

Yes, it's OK now because I have removed the first ilne from template that generate page in XML. XML was the barrier for javascript modifaction on DOM.
