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.

Version 0.7.0 – The future of translation interface!

The next major version release of Transposh is here, and to celebrate the occasion we have created a short video (about 11 minutes) . Introducing the new features available in the new version. You are more than welcomed to watch the video and nominate it to the next academy award prize for translation plugin update movies.

The first thing you will notice in the newer version is the major update to the user interface, we have added a couple of highly requested features to the interface such as next/previous buttons, approval of automated translations and finding phrases that are translated. Another interesting feature that we added is the ability for a translator to see the original phrase in a different language if it was already translated to said language manually, so assuming you have a Hebrew blog which you translated to English, a translator may be able to translate your site from English to another language, which might be easier for him. I want to thank Hanan for originally asking for this feature. It is also possible now to remove translations from the history dialog, which is a step in the direction of working on stricter control on translation quality.

The interface is also sleeker, with nicer ui that is also localizable and themable, you can set the theme in the widget settings, and a good place to get a grip on how it will look is themeroller. If you want to help us by translating the interface to your language and getting the credits for it, please let us know by using the contact us option above.

Topping this revision up is a virtual keyboard support using code from http://www.greywyvern.com/code/javascript/keyboard, which is still broken on IE, but will work on other browsers.

The arms race is still in progress, and Transposh is the first plugin (that we know of) to support (really support, working support) for 60 languages by adding Esperanto support using Apertium engine, for now it only works for English and Spanish blogs, but will add more languages upon demand.
Many more fixed are included, database updates, the long sought after meta keys translation, and more – closing ~15 tickets on our trac.
Last but not least – the credits for translators in this release go to: Amir for his translation to Hebrew and Ignacio for the Spanish translation, thanks guys!
