I am trying to add the following standard code to add google translate to my website but when i try to validate the page it is giving me errors.

Standard Code Provided on Google website -

<div style="text-align:right; padding-right:10px; ">

<div id="google_translate_element"></div><script>
function googleTranslateElementInit() {
new google.translate.TranslateElement({
pageLanguage: 'en',
layout: google.translate.TranslateElement.InlineLayout.SIMPLE
}, 'google_translate_element');
}
</script><script src="//translate.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>

</div>

Errors -
1. Line 272, Column 51: required attribute "type" not specified
<div id="google_translate_element"></div><script>
&#9993;
The attribute given above is required for an element that you've used, but you have omitted it. For instance, in most HTML and XHTML document types the "type" attribute is required on the "script" element and the "alt" attribute is required for the "img" element.
Typical values for type are type="text/css" for <style> and type="text/javascript" for <script>.
2.Line 279, Column 101: required attribute "type" not specified
…late.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>

Can anyone help me how to solve this problem?

Thank You in advance.
Much appreciated

As it says in the error message, add type="text/javascript" to each <script> tag.
