Version 0.6.5 – Now features less bugs

By fastjack - http://www.flickr.com/photos/fastjack/282707058/

Bugs - gotta love them

Version 0.6.5 has focused on squashing some bugs (and a few regressions too). It is by far the most stable and best software that we have released today. It also adds support to some header magic for search engines.

Lets just review the change log here:

  • Fixed Slovenian flag bug reported by anphicle (It was Sierra Leon before that, thanks for the sharp eye!).
  • Fixed an issue with the way wordpress handles canonical redirects and url rewritings as reported by Marco, wordpress had no knowledge of the way we translated tag and category prefixed urls and therefore redirected them to the default language url. This fix also improved a canonical form of some URLs.
  • Fixed a bug with translate all and after post translation which hindered their ability to work – (thanks nightsurfer [ticket #122]) – we also took the time to improve the handling of passing information to the translate all to use a meta instead of a redirect.
  • Fixed json translation for buddypress stream issue – (thanks Inocima [ticket #121]).

We are now working on a cleanup in the our trac system, assigning open tickets to new milestones. Please try to make this effort hopeless by creating new tickets for us as fast as you can.

And as always – enjoy this version.

Version 0.5.3 – Ability to translate URLs

This new version allows urls on the site to be translated to given target languages. We would like to thank Hans from Cosmedia (a website about cosmetic surgery and treatments) for sponsoring the work done on this feature, as well as sponsoring a patch to support the custom permalinks plugin. If you are missing a feature, create a ticket for us at the development site and we’ll add it to our todo list. If you want to help us, sponsoring a feature development will help us make it happen faster, and the community to get a more complete product.

There are also further improvements included such as the fact that comments made at languages that are different than the default one are marked as such and become translatable at the default language (you need to mark the translate default language option in the settings), better support for wordpress super cache plugin, and a small upgrade in the jQueryUI version used that helps with wordpress 3.0 coming support.

Last item on this notice agenda is that we want you to know that we have a page on our development site where we maintain third party plugins compatibility list (with patches if required). On our wiki plugin support matrix page, as its a wiki, just create a user on the site and feel free to edit and improve this.

Translation can drive traffic to your site

We have received information (and a nice picture) from Mike Jan from iPhone bashing site.

Bash.ch traffic jump after transposh filter install

Bash.ch traffic jump after transposh filter install

Transposh aims to make your site much more accessible to others, which naturally includes search engines. This in turn allows more users to get to your site and find your content (even if originally it was written in a language they can’t understand). This site serves as a perfect example, originally written in German, when its great content became translated (and therefor much more available) its reach skyrocketed ;)

We welcome others to share their own stories on comments to this post, have you experienced similar success? Nothing at all? What do you feel is still missing? We’re always happy to hear.
