Yes, it was over four years since the first version of Transposh for wordpress was released. And indeed, we have come a very long way.
Transposh is being used by thousands of sites all over the web, and we have many happy users (and a few less happy ones ).
This version, 0.9.2, is not really what we expected to have by now, after four years we would have expected that a version one (maybe even two) will already have been released. But apparently, life does rarely proceed as you plan it to.
The title of this posts actually refers to a new behaviour of our parser, when we used to encounter an (which should be a non-breaking space) we actually broke the phrase into two, which is rather the exact opposite of what things should have been. So hopefully this is now fixed, and we’ll no longer break!
Other changes include:
- Basic support for Woocommerce integration
- Override the case when other plugins or themes cause the process_page to be called prematurely
- Fix a nasty bug when the same translation appeared in a paragraph more than once
- Bing have added two languages
- Fix the bug reported by dserber disallowing language selection on post where translate_on_publish was disabled
- Update for .po files, Turkish Translation by Ömer Faruk Karabulut
You will enjoy this version! This is an order!
It has been three years (and three days, and thirty three hours) since the first version of Transposh plugin has been aired on the wordpress.org plugin repository.
Time surely flies.
This has been the first leap year (29th February) and a real leap year for Transposh. The plugin has been downloaded from the repository over 50,000 times this year and has made a steady growth of features and total number of languages supported. And today with the addition of Hmong Daw we are the first plugin to support a total number of 66 languages.
This was a really interesting (as in, have an interesting life) year for the automatic translation industry and plugins, where Google has nearly dropped their API support (only to switch to a pay model) while Bing imposed new limits. Transposh has successfully overcame those changes, while other plugins did not survive.
What does the future holds for Transposh? We are slowly boiling some new stuff, working on our vision to improve website translation, when things will be ready – they will be out. Meanwhile, your continued support is important to us, sometimes a simple email with “your plugin is great” drives us to continue. So if you believe we are doing well, drop us a line, if you think we should improve things, drop us a note, and if you think that we suck, we fail to understand why you have read this message up to this point
Wishing ourselves a great 4th year, maybe it will end with a bigger cake
We have just released version 0.7.2 with a few bug fixes and three added translations to the plugin.
- Italian translation by Marco Rossi
- Persian translation by Sushyant Zavarzadeh
- Spanish translation by Angel Torregrosa
Two years (and a day) have passed since version 0.0.1 was released and one year since version 0.4.3 was released. In this year we had over 32,000 downloads in comparison to 13,000 in the year before, and we have more features and a bit more grown up product.
We wanted to celebrate this day with the release of the proxy service, but unfortunately this will be delayed a bit, however – the dedicated 24GB ram server is finally up (hosting this site) and we will soon be ready to rumble. Looking forward to your ideas, suggestions, kind words and anything you might want to throw at us.
One year and 13,000 downloads later, we are happy to release version 0.4.3.
This version brings in more compatibility with some themes and better parsing of $ and % symbols.
Anyone wants to guess the number of downloads we will have next year?
