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).
Now something about the PRO Version. If you don't want to see the message : ...Translating... but want your site automatically load into new language or if you want your site to be indexed in the local national google database (using SEO) then I suggest go PRO. It cost 80 USD, yes, but the support is more than great and very fast. Even if you stuck, you describe the situation and you got answer. Or if you are a total dummy, give the creator a temporary FTP access to your web site and he will do it for you!. Great service!
1. i did have to add a class tag and modify the width in the default.php, so I could shorten and modify how it looked. took another 20 seconds.
2. you can only login using the english language. i'm not too worried about that yet. still working on getting english speaking customers. :)
bottom line: this module kicks ass. super easy. wish all modules would be this simple. thanks!
Well done, works straight out the box even for a newbie to trans like me. I will be checking your other mods and comp out.
In my opinion, the current version needs 2 enhancements or fixes:
a) Login only works in English language. In all other languages, user cannot loggin and also Joomla "thinks" that user is not logged in, even though English language shows user logged in with details.
b) In some languages, some translated text are displayed on top of each other, or overlapping.
If I could suggest adding...
module_class_suffix to the module parameters.
And perhaps a parameters to fix how wide the drop down box is.
It seemed to expanded itself to whatever position I put it in.
Thanks for a great module.
Nothing to say there, it's great, it does exactly what I need.
I had to remove it, since the translations are absolute rubbish.
Very disappointing. I'm pritty good in Dutch, French, English and German. I translate from French to other languages.
The translation is abolute not correct. There is not one sentence translated correct and understandable. Really a pity such a fine mod, but unusable.
