3- Get the Translate code: Open up a new browser window and, if you haven't already, sign up for an account at Translate.com (or just log in!). Then click 'Website Localizer' on the left, followed by 'Add Website' to get started:

Copy the code snippet, which your page will need for the translation (yours will have an actual key rather than just "my-key"):

 

4- Insert the Website Translator code into your app: In your PHPBB admin panel click on the 'General' tab at the top.  On the left side click on 'Board Settings'.  Paste your key from above into the 'Website Translator ID' box listed on this Page.
