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.

    Didn’t realise until hours after updating I’d been 404’ing translated pages. Need to install that APC thingy. But I do have W3 Total Cache running, is this not as good as Super Cache?

    Thanks as always.

    • #2 by ofer on August 3, 2011 - 2:09 am

      Hello There,

      I can’t see any reason why the new version would 404 anything, there have not been any changes that should have effected anything in that area.

      Installing APC will improve performance quite nicely, but this is just a warning, and if your performance was good before that, you don’t have to install it (you can always clear the warning)

      regarding w3 total cache, it should work, however transposh never added integration to it (for example cache page invalidation upon a translation change) maybe at some future.

      Good luck

      • #3 by Anphicle on August 3, 2011 - 2:33 am

        Turns out disabling and re-abling W3 Total Cache fixes the 404 problem, which started when I updated Transposh this morning.

        Problem solved, time for sleep! Thanks for your reply.

        • #4 by ofer on August 3, 2011 - 7:08 am

          No 404’s but does it work? please check your site again

        • #5 by ofer on August 3, 2011 - 12:05 pm

          Yout w3tc script minimizer makes transposh not work, you should remove transposh.js from that minimization, I’ll probably need to look at that

    Updata latest vision, noted “We were not able to find a supported in-memory caching engine, installing one can improve performance. ” What’s wrong with it? Why in 0.7.5 is OK?

    • #7 by ofer on August 3, 2011 - 7:09 am

      0.7.5 had the same issue, but was not able to inform you about it, this is a part of what is actually new in 0.7.6 – telling you that installing a “supported in-memory caching engine” such as APC is actually a very good idea for Transposh

  3. #8 by Eric on August 8, 2011 - 2:35 pm

    Thanks for your pluge. It is possible noted the Country Name as English Language. I did not know the exact country name in such version.

    Thank you very much!

  4. #9 by wedenin on August 15, 2011 - 12:16 pm

    Thanks for the new version of the plugin! It would be nice to do to translate the whole article from the admin panel, it would save a lot of time for users.

    • #10 by ofer on August 15, 2011 - 12:43 pm

      This is something we will work on…

  5. #11 by Eric on September 3, 2011 - 2:47 am

    In my head file I use following two type get the tile:
    <meta name="title" content="
    <meta name="description" content="
    title can get the translated tile, but the description just get the original one.. What should I do? Thank you?

  6. #12 by Donald on September 6, 2011 - 3:22 am

    Thank you for your great plugin.

    telling you that installing a “supported in-memory caching engine” such as APC is actually a very good idea for Transposh.

    What does APC mean?
    How to install it.
    Sorry that I know too less, hehe!

    Thank you so much for your helps!

    • #13 by ofer on September 20, 2011 - 11:35 pm

      Sorry for not replying earlier, this is just a warning, allowing webmasters to improve site performance, APC is advanced PHP Cache, and you can google for pear-apc and find all the details you will ever want, Transposh plugin uses it to improve performance and avoid db queries when its enabled

  7. #14 by Daitya on September 20, 2011 - 5:19 pm

    Wish for possibility to use widget in alternative widget areas in addition to the primary widget areas. With WordPress Theme Twentyten child I have primary, secondary and alternative widget areas – with certain Page templates using only the alternative widget areas. But once the widget has been put into the primary widget, I cannot also put to alternative widget area. : (

    • #15 by ofer on September 20, 2011 - 11:24 pm

      I agree, this is a feature that we should be adding in the future.

  8. #16 by Terence on September 21, 2011 - 5:35 pm

    This site is on shared hosting and I am not sure if it will be possible to use an op-code and I have noticed since this latest update that Transposh is reporting “In-memory caching engine not found” and some of the translation is now very patchy. Isn’t there an alternative to using APC or Memcached for folks who can’t install them?

    • #17 by ofer on September 21, 2011 - 6:08 pm

      Hello Terence

      This is a notification, which can be permanently removed by pressing the X on shared hosting there is little to do but asking your provider to install any of the alternatives, there’s not much we can do with that

      Good luck

      • #18 by Donald Shane on September 22, 2011 - 1:29 am

        I checked with HOSTGATOR, pear-apc is only available for VPS and Dedicated servers. Nothing to do with Shared hosting. They suggest to install WP SUPER CACHE. Is WP super cache plugin useful for Transposh plugin?

        • #19 by ofer on November 11, 2011 - 1:12 am

          Yes, it is quite useful, different location for caching but also makes an improvement

  9. #20 by Terence on September 26, 2011 - 5:42 pm

    In the end, I put myself through the pain barrier and asked the host admin to install APC, which he did without any fuss, and now not only Transposh but the whole site is running like a “stabbed rat”… excellent! The overall improvement in the site’s first page load-time from APC is quite spectacular in that it was already quite fast. It’s now down from 2.7 seconds to 1.3 seconds. And Transposh is doing its usual excellent job and playing its part in that, not delaying page loads whatsoever, so other languages are just as fast as the English default. Many thanks.

  10. #21 by Aaron on September 29, 2011 - 6:36 am

    How i do can add “nofollow” to the link to every language..

    • #22 by ofer on October 11, 2011 - 11:43 pm

      You must change the code that generates the links, and add the nofollow there, this function is in utils.php

  11. #23 by Angel on October 3, 2011 - 6:34 pm

    Sorry, but bing translator seems NOT working in the transposh plugin

    • #24 by ofer on October 11, 2011 - 11:44 pm

      It works on and off as they have added some quota limitations, you need to get your own AppID and replace the one that appears inside our code for this to work flowlessly

      • #25 by Angel on October 12, 2011 - 12:48 pm

        And, in what part of the code I must putting it?

        Thanks

  12. #26 by Thomas on October 9, 2011 - 5:06 pm

    Hi, thanks for this wonderful plugin, works great, but I have one question:

    My WP and tp default language is spanish, with translation to english and german working fine. If (for example) a german user posts in german, and I switch back to default spanish, the post does get translated.

    However I seem not to be able to manually change the automatic translation in the default language.
    eg. http://mysite.com/my-post?edit=1 does not show me the translation icons (green, amber, pink)
    whereas
    http://mysite.com/de/my-post?edit=1 will show the transposh icons.

    Is it possible to review automatic translations into default language?

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    • #27 by ofer on October 11, 2011 - 11:46 pm

      Hello,

      The answer is yes, when translate in default language is enabled you should be able to edit translations, you can test it here on this site (As some comments were posted in different languages)

      • #28 by Thomas on October 12, 2011 - 1:11 am

        many thanks for taking time to answer!

        I am just unable to edit translations for default language, what could I check to make it work?

        (The automatic translation eg. from DE to default ES works but with a horrible result)

      • #29 by Thomas on October 13, 2011 - 5:21 pm

        I found out that for some reason not clear to me, on my site the “data-srclang” attribute to the TP span tag is missing. Eg. on my site:
        <span id="tr_169" class="tr_" data-orig="Geschirrspülmaschine" data-source="0" data-token="R2VzY2hpcnJzcMO8bG1hc2NoaW5lIHZvbiBXaGlybHBvb2w,">Dishwasher</span>

        compared to a spanish comment on this site
        <span id="tr_3" class="tr_" data-orig="¿Y en que parte del código lo pongo" data-srclang="es" data-source="0" data-token="wr9ZIGVuIHF1ZSBwYXJ0ZSBkZWwgY8OzZGlnbyBsbyBwb25nbw,,">And, in what part of the code I must putting it</span>
        However the post on my site has the tp_language post meta/custom field defined as “de”.

        • #30 by ofer on November 11, 2011 - 12:16 am

          Hi,

          This is created by the plugin once the comment is created in a given language interface, we should enable the option to set a comment language in the backend in future versions.

  13. #31 by cp14 on October 11, 2011 - 3:34 am

    Hi ofer & Terence,

    I have installed the last Transposh version 0.7.6, and have some errors:

    – All titles can not be translated
    – Content and other parts (menus ..) sometimes are translated , sometimes are not.
    – Description & Keywords can not be translated also.
    – When I click to Transposh setting, it appears: “We were not able to find a supported in-memory caching engine, installing one can improve performance. Check Transposh FAQs” . What’s wrong? I’m using W3 Total Cache plugin for caching.

    Now, how can I do?
    Remove W3 Total Cache and install APC?
    Install older Transposh version?
    Or other ways?

    Please help me to solve this problem step by step!

    Thank you very much!

    • #32 by ofer on October 11, 2011 - 11:49 pm

      The translation errors you see are probably because of some jquery conflict, a quick glance at your browser javascript console will let you know if that’s the case.
      The warning is exactly that, a warning, you can safely ignore it, or read and act upon, don’t remove W3TC, install APC or memcached if you can, don’t downgrade…

      That’s the help I can give you with the information you provided, good luck

  14. #33 by marcus on October 11, 2011 - 7:44 am

    • #34 by ofer on October 11, 2011 - 11:51 pm

      Hello,

      Install firebug, or use chrome dev tools, look at the network tab and you can see if your IP is blocked, I really can’t check if your IP is blocked…

      Good luck

  15. #35 by Cristina on November 1, 2011 - 12:38 pm

    Hello,
    I do not know why, Transposh but no longer works on my site… Do? by Cristina

    • #36 by ofer on November 10, 2011 - 11:34 pm

      Sorry about the late reply, please replace your transposh.js file with the one from this site http://transposh.org/wp-content/plugins/transposh/js/transposh.js

      A new version will solve this soon with a normal update

      • #37 by Cristina on November 15, 2011 - 11:23 am

        …all good now, thanks.
        …the fact remains that in some parts of the site (in the home as a widget) the [tp no_translate="eaccelarator"][/tp] does not work!

  16. #38 by claudio castelli on November 4, 2011 - 7:49 pm

    no longer works for me eather… i even tried to delete all automatic translations.. but that wasen’t enough…
    so i deleted any sql tables related to transposh and reinstalled.. but nothing.
    When i try to translate, the translation bar freezes, and content don’t get translated…
    The only thing that works, is the manual translation…

    • #39 by ofer on November 4, 2011 - 8:01 pm

      Hello,

      You have done the opposite of what you should have done, anyhow – it is still translating but google is making a very tough limit.
      Solutions:
      1. Manual translation
      2. See my tips on twitter (temp solution)
      3. Be patient
      4. Wait for coming release which solves this

      Have fun

  17. #40 by claudio castelli on November 4, 2011 - 8:05 pm

    damn…
    is it possible to restore a previous version then?
    i read in the plugin admin section that i have to ask to you, using my personal key…

    • #41 by ofer on November 4, 2011 - 8:16 pm

      The restore will only restore non-machine translation, you can contact me directly

  18. #42 by Michał on November 5, 2011 - 10:13 am

    Hi,

    Could you please provide information when new version of your plugin will be available.

    Currently Bing and Google has change policy and translations are not working.

    From 1st December Google will provide only paid version of service. Will your plugin allow to use it?

    • #43 by ofer on November 5, 2011 - 10:45 am

      Hello,

      The new version will be available soon, before the google deadline.
      Bing is already committed to the svn, Google fix will be soon.
      There are tweaks that enable both to work in the current version.
      The Google paid API will be available only if someone provides me with a key for testing, the google proxy will probably solve the issue for all others.

      I hope your questions are answered.
