A Taste of Spain, London 6th June

On the 6th of June London will see the Taste of Spain festival occupying the whole of Regent Street, between Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street, in the heart of central London.

Supported by the Spanish Tourist Office, The Daily and Sunday Telegraph, the free festival will welcome many of the Spanish regions who will add colour and flair to the capital. With giant paellas, flamenco music, medieval food markets and a range of interactive sports challenges and events, visitors will be whisked away for a day to Spain's sunnier shores.

On the 24th and 25th July the Taste of Spain festival can be found on The Mound in Edinburgh.

Language Translations

While Panoramic Earth is set up with English as the main site, we recognize that many people are interested in adding information about their places in other languages. To help with that, members can apply for access to the language admin options within their profiles. This enables you to:
  • Provide local translations for the country, region and image title.
  • Manage translations for specific locations.
  • Provide local and travel information in local language.
  • Change relevant meta-data to optimize these language pages within search engines.
  • Link to other pages within the site.
We will continue to provide and edit English texts for locations. These pages within the site contain some advice and help with this:
  • Editing Style - help about the writing style used on Panoramic Earth and easy way to link images together.
  • Destination Admin Help - walk-through guide to accessing and editing location procedures.
  • Translation Help - walk-through guide to the language admin sections.
These systems are already finding much support, as Manuel Ruiz says; 'Fantastic, and now I can translate the comments into Spanish. It's great! Now I can show people who speak Spanish and not English some views of my city.'
