So the page does not even refresh, you don't see the google translation header, the content is simply replaced by the translated equivalent...
I used to be fan of this extension but this new release is just amazing.
Of course I chose Chinese as my first sample language, and then discovered that I couldn't read any of the languages in the language list either, so couldn't revert back to English. (I had turned off all the flags: I didn't see the point in using them.) Now I'm using the flags, too, so I can get back to English again. :)
This is a really great module.
Very very nice work Is a very nice free tool...at the moment i only see one issue, My web site is originally in english, went i translate the first time all works fine on any language...but if i do another translate (second time from the fist translate)...all the divs on my design are located on diferent places or lost... I really appreciate your help if is a bug in the mod or maybe an special requirement for the desing of my joomla template.
I was thinking if is possible to "redirect" the translation, like the home or an specific page of my site.
Thanks a lot for your attetion,Have a nice day!
Kind regards...nice Work!
Thanks for your kind words. Try to validate your website with http://validator.w3.org and try to fix all the major issues like XML Parsing errors.
I'm not sure about the "redirect" translation, but if you are asking about having translated page on a new page of your website like http://domain.com/en/, http://domain.com/fr/, etc. then you may consider Pro version.
I installed the module on a site with 4,500 distinct content pages. Beautiful. Now I have 4500x42=189,000 REAL pages! Even the ALT tags on images were translated, with absolutely no trace of Google having done the translation anywhere.
Immediately bought a second PRO copy for my other site, which has about 8,500 pages... you do the math.
Google rates you on breadth and depth of your site. This module is great, and the PRO addition is worth every penny! Thanks Edvard!
But, since the Pro version keep the domain name, I'm still interested since it might work better.
I could install it very easily, just following some simple instructions (well, you have to edit and upload some files anyway). I had some little problems diplaing utf8 special characters and the author helped me in less than 1 day, giving me the correct code to insert in my template. So, i must say, excellent module, and excellent support.
Only problem is about metatag, which does n´t get translated.
I wrote a mail to the author of GTranslate.
And in a few days i have it!
Now i can open translation at a new window!
You are welcome, and thanks for your great idea!!!
I tried with other components and to be honest I don't need perfect translations, which I don't think I would have got anyway.
But with this module google does the hard work for you. I use this with jreviews and as I have several categories etc, manual translation would have been near impossible for me.
This does the job great
Cons: author seems to "push" users to Pro version. How can we explain that Google wins the "frames show" battle a couple of days after each new free release while Pro alway works good?
At the moment AGTranslator is my 1st choise.
Thanks for good response.
There is a big difference in used technologies of Pro and Free versions and this time there is no possibility to hide top frame 100% by Free version (it shows during the Translation process, but after disappears if you wait).
