Hi there, this looks like a great little program or plug in. I have yet to set up a blog, as i hear and have been told they increase traffic to your site. Looks like the translator would help even more. and also mean non english speaking people can read them too. thanks, steve

> How many languages are supported at the moment??? Translator Pro supports 14 languages for English languages blogs. For blogs in other languages please refer to the translator pro language support matrix. Translator Gold supports 32 languages for English language blogs. For non-English blog, please refer to the Translator Gold matrix. > How do I pay if I dont have paypal acc??? Currently we support only PayPal. I am trying to add more alternatives shortly.

Kevin, Definitely. Translator Pro is leagues ahead of Global Translator, which is based on my original version of software and long since discarded architecture. We provide transparent failover with multiple engines so when one fails the other picks up the job. We also actively monitor the engines to prevent overloading; and in case there is overloading we take that engine offline till overload ban duration is over and use other engines in the meantime. We monitor for stale pages and refresh them continuously in the background... There is so much more to say :) Please refer to our documentation for more details. We are releasing a new version of the software (free upgrade to existing customers) soon with more optimizations and new features.
January 12, 2008: 4:06 am
I used global translator, but it leads to 403 forbidden error from google. I guess it has raised too much translation request to google. Does your tool work better in this case? -- Kevin Plenty of Software: Free downloads center

Hi Ian, We will start working on Translator for Web after we release Comment Guard Pro next week. Thanks for letting me know about the email subscription form. Best, Angsuman

Joe, Yes. Translator Pro as well as Translator Gold is able to serve blogs written in German language. Please refer to the articles on languages supported by Translator Pro & languages supported by Translator Gold for full details on the translations supported. I would recommend Translator Gold because of larger number of languages supported and more choice of translation engines, among other benefits, especially for German language blogs.

1. Google ad code isn't modified. 2. Google recognizes that the page is in a foreign language. In my experience Google displays foreign language ads where available, otherwise it displays ads in english.
November 6, 2007: 3:13 pm
This sounds amazing. Will be purchasing over the weekend. One question I must ask though is about Google ads. When the page is translated are English ads shown or shown in the translated language.

Angsu wondering if these could be included in future features: 1) Disable translation of selected URL's Example.. the home page content goes stale very soon.. and I have a forum on my site... but it becomes inaccesible from all translated pages.. gives a 404 2) Auto deletion of specific translated pages after certain time? 3) Deletion of translated pages under a specific category..
September 1, 2007: 6:09 am
Hi Siddharth, Currently we do not translate RSS feeds for the simple reason because translation engines do not directly support this format. However we have thought about providing it in the next release.
September 1, 2007: 6:07 am
> Will the pages be published automatically? Say if I have 500 pages on my blog, will the translator publish all 500×31 pages all at once? The pages are generated on-the-fly when requested for the first time. After that they are provided from cache. This reduces the upfront load on the server and translation engine(s).
September 1, 2007: 3:33 am
Hi Angsu, Would it be possible to even generate RSS feeds for the translated content in different languages?

@Hentaikid > How permanent are the cached translations? They exist in disk-cache if object caching is enabled. So they are not very permanent and you don't have an easy way to modify it manually. However when you change the page the cache gets updated. In version 4.0 (free upgrade for all customers) I have plan to allow for creation of manual translations. Whenever manual transaltions are available they will be used instead of automatic machine translations.

Good news about the cache. Unfortunately the stripping out of Adsense on translated pages kind of ruins the whole plugin for me. I've tried using the around the Adsense code and it doesn't seem to work for me, where exactly should it go please? Angsuman> It doesn’t strip out AdSense ads if you use URL mode of translation. Alternatively you can enclose your AdSense ads in skip translation comments which will also save your AdSense ads. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

[...] Anaconda uses flexible 3 column layout which is designed entirely with CSS. The center column and left sidebar are flexible and adjusts to browser size. We will release 3 Column Anaconda Theme for WordPress 2.x blogs next week, most likely on Thursday. In the meantime we are adding few more features to it and cleaning up the website for the release, 12 more bullets (of todo items) on my list to be precise. I promise it will be worth your wait. We have worked very hard on this theme, implemented lots of useful features, fully css based, customizable to the core and yet comes with nice defaults, and it works out of the box with tons of WordPress plugins including our WordPress Translator Pro plugin, which was released last week.

[...] We have released Angsuman’s Translation Plugin Pro Version 3.0. This comes with several new features and enhancements, defects reported in version 2.0 has been fixed. The main thrust of this release is flexibility and configurability. We have exposed lot’s of choices to the end-user (blogger) with reasonable choices as default. This will ensure zero-configurability as before. However it now allows you to fine-tune the translator to your liking for each translated language. Please read below for the new features and where to get it. We have started shipping the new version to all of our existing customer (free upgrade). Honk if you haven’t received your copy in the next 6 hours. This is a highly recommended upgrade for search engine optimization purposes. [...]

Rich, > What happens if a translation engine is timing out, or if it goes offline permanently. If the plugin is receiving 301 redirect or 404 not found errors, does it fail gracefully? The translated pages are cached (when object caching is enabled) which reduces the impact, if any, of temporary unavailability of translation engines. Beyond that we do not do much other than basic error handling, php style, at this time. We are thinking of providing automatic switchover to another translation engine if some customers ask for it. In the next version (provided as free upgrade to all customers) we plan to provide user's the capability to choose translation engines as well as control the filtering we provide. This will address the issue of translation engine going down permanently. Secondly we provide free upgrades. So eventually any such events will be handled with free upgrades too. The ability to manually choose translation engines and filtering options for each language allows users to choose their set for each languages. > Also, have you had any feedback from fluent readers of the languages as to the effectiveness of the machine translation tools you’re using? We had several feedback on translation quality and also did extensive tests before we had chosen the defaults. Moreover the tools I am using are publicly available. However machine translation is complicated and all the available engines fail for some set or other. We have tried to provide the best we could. Even that required extensive pre-processing and post-processing of pages. If you are concerned about gaffe's you can always put a disclaimer that the translation are machine generated and there can be errors. You can also tell them that English is the definitive version of your blog. > has anyone had foreign-language contributions to their blog after activating this plugin? Yes, I have received lots of comments in foreign languages, especially Chinese and Korean. Personally I wouldn't bother much about foreign language spam, but you can always use any free translation engine to check it :) > So, that leads to this question: Would it be possible to rewrite the page for the machine translation so that the comment box is disabled for all but the English audience? Sure, it is possible. -- Angsuman

What happens if a translation engine is timing out, or if it goes offline permanently. If the plugin is receiving 301 redirect or 404 not found errors, does it fail gracefully? I imagine if the plugin tests the results of the cache for 301 or 404 (etc.) response codes, it could hide the flag for that translation engine. Or, are there multiple translation engines defined as fallback options in case the leading engine for a particular language fails? Also, have you had any feedback from fluent readers of the languages as to the effectiveness of the machine translation tools you're using? I'd hate for someone to think I personally made a blundering gaffe in their language when they arrive at my site via a search engine and it seems like my navigation bars, and etc. were hard-coded in their language and I didn't actually have a hand in it. One way I can imagine forestalling this confusion is to use CSS to place a note at the top of the screen in a floating pane that indicates the following content is an automatic machine translation. That would satisfy my worries of cross-cultural mis-steps. Finally, has anyone had foreign-language contributions to their blog after activating this plugin? I'm not actually sure I would want that because a) I couldn't tell if it was spam or not and b) I would have no easy way of determining a comments appropriateness for my weblog. So, that leads to this question: Would it be possible to rewrite the page for the machine translation so that the comment box is disabled for all but the English audience? Regards, Rich BlogRodent

@James & Tate, We investigated some more on the problem. It appears to be a defect of the underlying translation engine. A simple way to solve this would be to enclose your AdSense ads in skip comments tags: <!--skip translation--> AdSense code <!--end skip translation--> We will look to see if we can find a more elegant workaround.

> I think that it may have something to do with the translation services’ terms of service, which may prevent the use of ads alongside content generated by their translators It isn't intentional. It appears to be a defect. I will look into it today and we will fix it.
August 23, 2006: 4:07 pm
Yes, I noticed that too. I think that it may have something to do with the translation services' terms of service, which may prevent the use of ads alongside content generated by their translators, but I have not contacted Angsuman yet to confirm this behavior.

Hi James, Thanks for considering purchasing. To answer your questions: 1. Yes. It would be future proof. We will ensure that it works with all future releases of WordPress. 2. Yes. The upgrades are free for life. WordPress is becoming more and more complex with each release and so are the wide variety of plugins. To give an example the nice permalinks feature is variously implemented by plugins. For example UTW implements it differently than wp-email plugin. And they both do it differently than WP core code. I have made the plugin to work with both. In the process I realized that such problems can happen in the future with so many plugin author's going their own way and with newer and often incompatible changes in WordPress code. This is one of the main reason I decided to charge for the plugin, so we can support such issues in future as and when they arise. Best, Angsuman

Since this is the first WordPress plugin that I have ever considered purchasing, I would like to ask just a few questions before I hit the big PayPal button. 1. How "future-proof" is Translator Plugin Pro? For example, if a new feature in WordPress v2.5 causes the plugin to malfunction, will you correct the conflict and provide a free upgrade? 2. Are the free upgrades offered for life, or will Translator Plugin Pro v2 be a paid upgrade?
