Version 0.9.2 – 4 years and we don’t break

Lovely tulips

We grew 4 (actually 5) tulips for our anniversary

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! :)

Version 0.9.1 – Improving constantly

Translation Bring People Together

Translation Bring People Together

Should have posted earlier about 0.9.1 which is a rather nice version with some nice improvements. But we have waited for this extremely nice animation, made on Fiverr by an amazing animator, that happens to be related by blood to the team here :)

We have also created a nice Widget Gallery page, just go and see!

Other changes include:

  • Added some help inside the Admin interface for very common questions (keys – no, you don’t need keys by default)
  • Allow jQueryUI version to be overriden, resolving many conflicts (old themes, all sort of components with unsorted versions of jQuery and jQueryUI)
  • A fix when some bad plugins insert .css in an inappropriate way (this disabled the ability to see which languages were selecred)
  • Added the transposh_echo function – see our development site for documentation and usage
  • Fixes for widgets, easier inclusion with shortcodes, old dropbox fixes, ids removed
  • Adding touch punch to admin, allowing language selection on touch devices
  • Fixes for minor issues discovered since 0.9.0

What are you waiting for? Download the latest version now!

Version 0.8.5 – We support Lao too

A frog and a mouse welcome Laos

Well, Google just announced on their translate blog that they will support Lao, the official language of Laos, so we have added the code required and did a quick release with support to this language, which is also supported by One Hour Translation.

The version is already out for a few days but the real problem with getting this post live was finding a picture. We are not quite sure it is the most appropriate picture, but at least it rhymes.

Enjoy this new version.

Version 0.8.4 – Professional human translation is here

Professional work

Professional work

Less professional work

Less professional work

We are very proud to present this release of our plugin.

This version, in addition to normal enhancements and bug fixes, finally integrates professional human translation with a basic integration with OneHourTranslation.com professional translation service.


The way this works is the following:

  • Go to OneHourTranslaion.com and create an account
  • Use the account details generated and insert them to Transposh’s settings page
  • When using the translation interface, an admin (and only an admin) will see a “One Hour Translation queue” button
  • Pressing this button will add the phrase to a queue, another click will dequeue the item
  • 10 minutes after the last phrase was added a translation project will be generated on one hour translation
  • Give it an hour (or less from our experience) and the translations will appear on your site
  • Everybody is happy and you actually support the Transposh project (Yay!)

This is rather new, so if Murphy strikes, just contact us and we’ll do whatever we can to make things work.

Now, for the rest of this release:

  • Fixed flag of Swahili to Tanzania as noted by Ed Jordan
  • Lots of fixes to backup service
  • Fix for a parser bug when having translate in default language following a select element
  • Fixed XSS reported by Infern0_ (big thanks!)
  • For programmers: Added a global function to return the current language “transposh_get_current_language()
  • Seems like Lybia has a new flag too ;)
  • Fixed widget IDs containing a backslash so that we’ll pass w3c validation
  • Updated jQueryUI to 1.8.23 to avoid conflict with jQuery 1.8 used by some themes
  • Portuguese (Brazil) translation by Amilton Junior

Our operators are waiting for your feedback, if you get a busy signal, try contacting us again!

P.S. This is the very first version to have passed 1,000 daily downloads, we are humbled.

Version 0.8.2 – 3 years, 66 languages, 1 wordpress

I said 3 candles on that cake!

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 :)

Version 0.8.1 – It’s not a bug! it’s a feature!

Hunting bugs with advanced technology

At Transposh we pride ourselves in our high coding standards, this means that we have no bugs in our software. Yes, you have heard this right, zero bugs found. However – there is a slight problem, other people are not like us and they actually do have bugs in their codes. So if you installed Transposh and something is not working correctly, there is probably a bug in WordPress, or a bug in the theme you are you using, or a conflict with another plugin, or jQuery made some mess, or you are still using Internet Explorer 2 or this is something related to your mother, or her mother, or her grandmother, or the first cell that was ever created. It is never us! never ever!

If something is not working and you report it to us, we immediately find someone else to blame, and sometimes, when in good mood, we actually code something to avoid those other people bugs.

This release is one of those releases, the only new feature is the ability to set comment languages in the management interface (if someone posted in Spanish while actually browsing your site in English or vice verse) .

The rest of this release is:

  • Enable live human translations backup by default
  • Lists of languages used in Javascript are fixed and more readable
  • Improved loading for backend javascripts
  • Support the , symbol in parsing (Its not a comma, really!)
  • Reintroduce CORS support in our AJAX (Cross Origin Ajax)
  • Try to make sure lazyloader loads in the correct context
  • Fix calculation of batch translation size to avoid translations too large for Google
  • Fix when two jQueryUI versions are included, mainly for wordpress 3.2.x
  • Fixed widget to remove [Language] which was buggy as noted by Philip Trauring
  • Fix broken sites for users using the widget function directly
We hope you’ll enjoy this version

Version 0.7.6 – Keep on rolling

attribution: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aidanmorgan/3705621971/sizes/l/in/photostream/

Keeping on rolling

We are happy to present you all with our newest wordpress plugin release. This is a rolling release that does not include any major changes or something that is too groundbreaking. So we’ll just walk over the changelog and explain the news.

  • We have imported some improvements to the simple html dom which serves as the base to our parser from a new upstream release, not much news here
  • Allow setting of a post/page language with a simple select box. This is not a new feature, as this could have been handled in the past my adding the tp_language meta to the posts manually, however it does simplify the process, and it also make sure that translate default language is turned on so that the feature will actually work.
  • Warn about some conditions that we can’t fix and a user should probably be aware of. Currently there are two condition we notify about, which are the ones that made most of our support questions to date. First we warn about low memory conditions, and we urge people to increase their php memory limit (or switch to a decent hosting service). The second warning is about the lack of APC or similar which can improve the performance dramatically (again, switch to better hosting!). The warnings can be safely removed by pressing the small X symbol and the side which will assure that you won’t see those warnings in the near future.
  • Allow collecting of anonymized statisics upon user consent. Please please allow us to gather some data! we really want some vanity statistics like we are running on 1 zillion sites and are translating a gazillion pages per second!
  • Fixed some minor warning notices reported by users. No longer will your logs be clogged after removing our ads!
We have also revised the FAQ page, maybe we will avoid some repeating questions, or we’ll be able to tell users to read the FAQs for that…
Also – it is now easier than ever to show your everlasting support of this project by using the social buttons on the side, it does not cost you anything (maybe besides losing all your friends, fame and glory on facebook) so just do it!
We hope that you will enjoy this version, and would (like always) be happy to read your comments.

Version 0.7.5 – The longest day ++

by voobie http://www.flickr.com/photos/vinish/960942349/

Support for 5 more Indic languages

One day after summer has officially begun in the northern hemisphere, we are proud to present version 0.7.5 of our plugin. This version adds support for the new languages that were announced as supported today by Google Translate - Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu.

Before rushing to add those languages to your blog, please be reminded that those languages use an ajax proxy in order to work correctly, which means that they create a load on your server upon the first encounter with a new translation string (forcing it to fetch the translation from Google). So the choice is yours, but you have been notified…

Further more this version adds the option not to override the default locale with Transposh’s default language, this behavior (new on 0.7.4) allowed MU users to have admin pages in their language, but on the other hand annoyed users that wanted to manage the site in a language different than their default, so now this is configurable.

We have also improved the translation UI, the next and previous buttons now save changes done, and the dialog will not be re-centered upon clicking these buttons.

We hope you’ll enjoy this version.
