Google Translate not apparent in Google Analytics
With Proboards help, I have installed Google Translate without setting the tracking option.
Since, I have installed Google Analytics and it appears to be working.
Then I went back and re-installed Translate with the tracking option and Analytics ID.
So far I have not been able to see Translate being tracked by Analytics.
I have tried various fora on finding translate in analytics without success so far.
This is what the HTML looks like now. Before going further, I thought it wise to check that the changes I have made aren't wrong and causing the problem. Can anyone help/advise please?

Hi Adrian :-)
Unfortunately at this stage Google Translate is still using the previous version of Event tracking and hasn't been updated to the Universal tracking code syntax. tt can be made to work though.
Install the website translator plugin as necessary and be sure to add your property tracking id as required.
Have your usual tracking code installed on your site too (if using the current version it should be Universal analytics.js)
If your site is https add the following code in the <head> </head> section of your website
alternatively if your website is http:
When someone then uses the tool to change the language of the site, it will track it as Events with the Event label being an abbrev. of the language
It also wont interfere with the normal page tracking, as the ga.js script is not being called to track anything except the google translate events via the translate tool
eta - depending on how your current tracking is setup, you will not necessarily see these events in the real time reporting, so you may have to wait up to 24hrs for them to appear in the standard Behaviour > Events report
