Global Translator 0.6.beta5 rilasciato

aprile 11, 2007 by  
Filed under WP Plugins

La 0.6.beta5 include una piccola ma sostanziale modifica relativa al reperimento dell’url da inviare al servizio di traduzione. La modalità precedente creava problemi ad alcune configurazioni ed andava in conflitto con Firestats. Colgo l’occasione per ringraziare Jason F. Irwin per il prezioso supporto fornitomi.
Release notes:

  • Fixed compatibility problem with Firestats

Global Translator 0.6.beta4 rilasciato

aprile 9, 2007 by  
Filed under WP Plugins

Con la nuova feature che consente di selezionare quali traduzioni abilitare, ho introdotto un bug che non permetteva di visualizzare la bandiera relativa alla lingua di base del blog. Questo il motivo principale per la 0.6.beta4. I dettagli di seguito:

  • Fixed bug introduced with the new configuration option which permits to choose which flags to show
  • Added the “gltr_” prefix for all the functions names in order to reduce naming conflicts with other plugins
  • Removed PLUGIN_DIR_NAME define

Global Translator 0.6.beta3 rilasciato

aprile 8, 2007 by  
Filed under WP Plugins

Ormai siamo al ritmo di un rilascio al giorno! Tutto grazie anche ai preziosi feedbacks che ricevo e che mi consentono di testare bene il codice. Oggi (che oltretutto è Pasqua – Auguri !) siamo alla versione 0.6.beta3 in cui a parte qualche altro fix ho aggiunto una feature richiestissima che consiste nella possibilità di poter scegliere il numero di traduzioni da rendere disponibili sul sito.
Di seguito le release notes:

  • Added new configuration feature: now you can choose to enable a custom number of translations
  • Fixed problem on the flags bar: the translation links were always redirecting to the home page

WordPress Global Translator Plugin 0.5

dicembre 23, 2006 by  
Filed under WP Plugins

E’ finalmente arrivata anche la versione 0.5: la vera novità è senz’altro rappresentata dall’introduzione di un sistema di caching configurabile per le pagine tradotte. In questa maniera è possibile ridurre sensibilmente il numero delle chiamate ai Google Traslations Services e nello stesso tempo si abbattono notevolmente i tempi di caricamento delle pagine. Tenete comunque presente che l’implementazione è “sperimentale”: questo non significa che è “pericolosa” ma semplicemente che necessita di essere riprodotta e provata in più scenari differenti prima di essere considerata stabile.

Ho poi corretto qualche bug tra cui quello relativo al malfunzionamento della traduzione Giapponese per i blog in lingua inglese e quello per cui non venivano sostituite correttamente le url delle pagine tradotte nel caso in cui il blog avesse il parametro “Blog address? diverso dal parametro “WordPress address”.

Attendo fiducioso i vostri preziosi feedback!!

WordPress Global Translator Plugin 0.4.1

dicembre 9, 2006 by  
Filed under WP Plugins

Ho ricevuto alcune segnalazioni che riportavano uno strano comportamento della versione 0.4, per cui sembrava che in certe condizioni venisse accodata alla pagina tradotta, quella originale.

Ho fatto alcune verifiche e prove e alla fine ho trovato e corretto il problema nella versione 0.4.1 appena rilasciata.

Grazie a tutti per l’aiuto che mi date nello scovare i bug e quindi nel perfezionare sempre piu’ il plugin!!

Global Translator is a free and open source WordPress Plugin which is able to automatically translate your blog in 48 different languages:
Italian, Korean, Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), Portuguese, English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, Greek, Dutch, Bulgarian, Czech, Croatian, Danish, Finnish, Hindi, Polish, Romanian, Swedish, Norwegian, Catalan, Filipino, Hebrew, Indonesian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Albanian, Estonian, Galician, Maltese, Thai, Turkish, Hungarian, Belarus,Irish, Icelandic, Macedonian, Malay, Persian.
The number of available translations will depend on your blog language and the translation engine you will chose to use.
The most powerful features which Global Translator provides are:

  • Four different Translation Engines: it has the ability to provide the translations by using Google Translation Engine, Babel Fish, Promt, FreeTranslations.com
  • Search Engine Optimized: it uses the permalinks by adding the language code at the beginning of all your URI. For example the english version on www.domain.com/mycategory/mypost will be automatically transformed in www.domain.com/en/mycategory/mypost
  • Fast Caching System: new fast, smart, optimized, self-cleaning and built-in caching system. Drastically reduction of the risk of temporarily ban from translation engines.
  • Fully configurable layout: you can easily customize the appearance of the translation bar by choosing between a TABLE, DIV or IMAGE MAP based layout for the flags bar and by selecting the number of translations to make available to your visitors
  • No database modifications: Global Translator is not intrusive. It doesn’t create or alter any table on your database: this feature permits to obtain better performances.
