Abstract With the development of new media technology, various social media are popping up which make us feel much easier and interested in getting internet and communicate with others. Different from traditional media, social media is information content created by people using highly accessible and scalable publishing technologies such as the blog. The aim of this research work is to design and develop a multi language translation system which will enable bloggers and educators collaborate and share information across the globe through the translation of language from one form to the other. The proposed system adopted Dynamic Systems Development Model Methodology (DSDM) and implemented using an object oriented programming language php and mysql database for the back end and html &css3 for the user interface. The proposed system will be beneficial to bloggers, educators and organizations who share and render their services through blogging if adopted. The proposed will enable users to translate blog post from one written language to another. CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background to the Study The rapid development of information technology today has affected almost all aspects of life, people's living and learning style are constantly changing from one form to the other. The way people are getting information and communicating from each other are now turning into digital style, which can be seen in the emerging of on-line daily news in Web 2.0, social media applications and other facilities being developed using information technology. Given the high level of IT development, digital technologies and the Internet have become natural and easily accessible resource for information and people-to-people communication. With comparatively lower levels of government control, Internet has become an arena in which alternative discourses emerge. One such example is the Blog (James, 2003). As a result of this new change, information sharing and transmission should be able to develop very well both in language translation in order to reach the effective learning and understanding among people across the continent (Kairer, 2013). The emergence of blog as a part of Web 2.0 brings a right way to manage knowledge appropriately. At its core, technologies facilitate the way, where knowledge and ideas can be easily expanded; Blogs and blogging have attracted a growing body of scholarship since the popularization of the form in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The use of blogs has spread to a variety of contexts, such as academic research (Ewins, 2005). (Blood, 2000) traces the origins of blogs to the practice of link sharing on the early World Wide Web. She emphasizes that the earliest practitioner definitions of what constituted a blog were based on the presence of dated entries containing links, commentary, and thoughts on a personal website. Blog is the abbreviation of the Web- log (network diary) which is a part of Web 2.0, which is characterized by many tools that enable the production, communication, sharing and dissemination of information involving more users and generating an infinite interactivity among readers. Blogging has emerged among a variety of web-based instructional possibilities as a leader, because it allows students to interact in a more public venue, sharing their thoughts, ideas, interpretations, hopes, and fears with anyone willing to spend time looking on the Internet (Martindale, 2005). The recent emergence of this tool using the Internet, means that we are beginning to understand and appreciate its possibilities, which are numerous and very advantageous. Some researchers (Amoros, 2007), note on the design characteristics of Weblogs, which are hypertext, dynamism, creativity and originality. In 1999, Jorn Barger coined the term weblog, he defined it as a weblog (sometimes called a blog or a news page or a filter) which is a webpage where a web logger (sometimes called a blogger, or a pre surfer). A blog is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blogs can be used to facilitate group working, a number of commentators argue that blogs encourage reflective learning which can be used as a diary to keep a record of achievement and of interesting material (Oravec, 2005). The way blogs are typically organized allows the reader/viewer to posts according to categories and dates as well as allowing the user to use key words to Search for posts on any topic. Blogs have gained interest in many part of the world and also been isolated by distance students due to language barrier especially students within the European countries like India (Dickey, 2004). They further contend that blogs are more successful in promoting interactivity that is conversational as opposed to other online discussion. Research also suggests that blogs allow a more creative response from students (Oravec, 2003) and that the open and interlinked nature of blogs connects learners to contexts beyond the classroom (Halavais, 2004). Educators are using blogs in many ways including online portfolios, for student personal reflective journals, as a record of field notes, as discipline specific spaces for knowledge and information sharing, as a space for student dialogue and for class ministration. 1.2 Statement of the problem Eight to ten years ago, blogs were becoming the primary point of communication for individuals online. But with the advent of social media and social networking in the past five years, blogs have become only one portion of an individual’s line of life style posing many challenges especially in language differences. Despite the statistics showing an increase in blogs, some skeptics present a different view due to language deference in most Asian countries. Many sites classified as blogs may not be dynamic and interactive as claimed. According to Krishmamurthy (2006) most blogs do not change frequently recent study shows that up to two-thirds of blogs may be inactive especially blogs that have contents written from non English spoken countries. Much that have been written in the US about blogging pertains to blogs written in English by residents of the US with a strong bias towards white, male, well educated bloggers. However, as a wide range of services have become available in many other regions around the globe, blogging has become popular with a more diverse community of individuals especially the Arabic countries where Arabic language is used in writing. Some participants who did not have previous experience in blogging had difficulty starting up with the blog and writing comments due to language barriers as seen in many countries like china, India, other non speaking English countries which has given many bloggers concerns especially in Nigeria. Language translation in blogging has been a major challenge among bloggers.
