Thanks for a great product.
You may as I note the flags are hidden by the title bar. Maybe it's a template issue but it was the same on different templates.
By default 'major' languages are set to show flags only, but I suggest you change all to no flags AND remeber to set the default language.
This experience is based on Joomla legacy 1.0.15 version
Had a couple of issues, which were responded to swiftly by the developer in the forum (i.e. within an hour). Turned out the issues were due to me having the site .htaccess protected during development, rather than GTranslate.
That was two days ago. Today I received an email from the developer with the latest release attached as a Zip (no hunting / checking a site for downloads). This version is a pearler: i) Now uses a Google API (you need to get your own but that's easy enough) allowing translation of up to 100,000 characters a day. A new sophisticated caching system means that changes to pages will only require asking Google for translations of any new words should mean that, after initial translations, the load on Google is keplt well within the character limit. Some users of the previous version had run into trouble with the number of requests being sent to Google and translations were suspended for up to 10 days. Hopefully this will avoid all that. Now for the killer feature: the ability to edit the translated text, so that if Google doesn't get it right you can make manual edits. I'd previously planned to use Joomfish on this site but I really can't see the need now. This looks as though it's going to save me masses of time (and save my clients loads of money!) Following today's release I had just one question to ask the developer (about cacheing) and it was responded to within 10 minutes. Not the cheapest extension I've ever bought but in terms of what it can do, it must rank highly as one of the best value.
GTranslate works as advertised when used with the "on the fly" option available in the free version. The Free version needs little to no tech support. Since it is free and needs little to no tech support, there is no reason to file a dispute with paypal. The free version seems to be well tested and debugged. The Free versions works well with third party extensions. The free version works with and without SEF activated. The free version does not seem to overload the host with script requests. The free version does not have a problem with writing excessive files to the server. All in All the FREE version works great. Tech Support is very very very poor. So if you have a problem, you are on your own.
Select 'on the fly' method to enable the flags though (this might be a slight bug). Overall I'm really pleased with this and would recommend!
We dropped in this plugin, fooled with it a bit, and BAM!
Another great use of this plugin is to illustrate to your clients the need for plain text integration; some people like the funky cool text graphics but THIS shows people how important ASCII text on a page is in relation to search, etc.
When this site goes live it will be with the GTranslate PRO version. I don't have a problem spending $$ on quality and this is worthy of my cash.
If I could give 10 stars, I would.
