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.
Apart from an occasional jQuery conflict with another extension, I highly recommend it. The free version works without ioncube loader (a huge plus in my opinion).
I then purchased the PRO version online - setup took me 15 minutes including reconfiguring joomFish and JoomSEF - and I'm still amazed how smooth and easy it was to have
- 58 languages
- including SEF URLs like /fr /it /vi
- including cache
- including translation of meta tags
A great application - recommended!
Anyway, I'm very much a non technical person but installed this without fuss and not only does it work well but is sooo..... easy to configure. You can change which flags are displayed and the sizes too. It is also compact and doesn't take up much room.
I must also say that the support I received from Edvard, (this was needed because a lot of the content in my pages was not fully valid and was actually nothing to do with GTranslate) was superb.
