Google Translate has trouble with this site

From time to time I find myself wanting to read a conversation in a language I don’t speak on the old forums. In these cases, I put the url into Google Translate like this:
Google Translate forum.openstreetmap.org example (original link)

This doesn’t seem to work with this site. It just shows a blank page instead of a translated version.
Google Translate community.openstreetmap.org example(original link)

I’ve tried this on several other Discourse instances as well and found the same results, so perhaps this is just a fundamental limitation of Discourse being a client rendered JavaScript application. Does anyone know if there is a way to make this work like it does on most other websites? If not, I saw there was some discussion of adding a machine translation plugin. That would serve the same purpose.
