Discussion on Ajax Translator Revolution WordPress Plugin

Hi Folks,

Your translate plugin looks great but just have 2 questions prior to purchasing.

1) Are there limitations on how many characters can be translated with the API key provided with the purchase (I believe Google API charges by number of characters of text translated)? 2) What kind of extra performance load does the widget add to a wordpress site?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

SurStudio

Hello,

glad you like the plugin.

1) No, there aren’t any limitations.
2) The impact of having the translator is very little. As it’s loaded after your page is ready.

Cheers

We’ve been looking a plugin like this. Is portuguese (Brasil) included in the plugin?

SurStudio

Hello,

Portuguese is included, but Brazilian Portuguese is not.

Cheers

need brazilian portugese please

SurStudio

It’s most likely that the widget you use to place the translator it’s only available in the front page. So there are 2 solutions for this:

You can also add the translator to another widget (without taking it out from the front page), a widget available in all other pages.

Or

You can do that by using the Advanced Positioning features. See:

Advanced > General > Location

If you’re not sure how it works, you can watch the second video on the Installation Guide.

Or if you want me to do it for you, I’ll ask you to take a screenshot and visually explain where would you like to place the translator or how would you like to be displayed, exactly. I’m asking you this because some times is not too easy to come up with the procedure, and then it turns out that the solution isn’t exactly what the client wanted.

I don’t know what operating system are you using, but I’m sure you have some simple graphic editing tool, so basically, you should:

  • Take a screenshot of the current website (without the translator)
  • Enable the translator with the desired flags/languages, take another temp screenshot
  • Select/copy/paste the translator area and place it in the desired location in the first screenshot
  • Send only the first screenshot along with a temporary WP admin access (via email of course)

Cheers

thank you for your willingness to help! I figured the plugin saved the user’s chosen language into a cookie and other pages would be translated without a widget. i resolved my issue with a work-around.. thanks again.

SurStudio

Ok, great :)

How can I show this in a widget??? I can´t find any information about this!!

SurStudio

Hello,

in the plugin’s admin panel, go to:

Advanced > Location, select Widget and save.

After that it’ll appear in the Widgets page:

Appereance > Widgets (/wp-admin/widgets.php)

I am looking at this plugin and the dropdown one. I’m not sure which one will work best for my site (and keeping it responsive) so I’m planning to grab both and put them on live test sites to see which one to use.

Is there a problem with installing either of the plugins, using the order number to activate and test it, then deactivate, delete and re-install the one I want on the site I’ll end up using it on?

SurStudio

Hello,

there’s no problem with having both plugins installed, and even enabled at the same time. They won’t interfere with each other.

You can deactivate/delete/re-install them at will.

Let me know if you have some other question.

Cheers

Great plugin, very good and quick support.

SurStudio

Thank you very much for your great review! :)

Hello there. Apparently the translation does not work with me. I tried Surstudio and Google but nothing works. Try it yourself here: http://bantoozone.com/robin-williams-ultime-alerte-mort/

SurStudio

Hello,

this is the message why it doesn’t work:

Failed (usageLimits - dailyLimitExceeded - Daily Limit Exceeded)

If you want to use Google Translate, then you have to fund your Google account first.

Also, the server was blacklisted because you were using an invalid key in this batoozone website, now that’s is fixed, so if you select SurStudio as translation service, it’ll work fine.

Cheers

I just bought your plugin and i have an issue with it:

I have activated all languages but instead of taking the width of the template, the translator is taking over 5000px of width because we have all languages there.

The translator bar should not break the template, it should be adjustable… I have tried doind that with css but it doesn’t work. Please provide support as soon as possible. Thank you

SurStudio

Hello,

yes, it’s adjustable but it’s not automatic. You have to define what languages to display/hide depending on the screen resolution.

Since you know about CSS, please take a minute to take a look to the translator CSS file (styles/jquery.translator.css), go to the end of the file, you’ll find a set of predefined CSS rules. You should use those rules (and/or define new media queries) to show/hide the languages, for instance:

@media screen and (max-width: 1024px) {
    .td-translator-language-es {
        display: none;
    }
}

This will hide the Spanish language for resolutions lower than 1024px width. Notice es in the CSS selector, that’s the language code. Do the same with other languages.

Let me know if you have some other question.

Cheers

Great plugin, exactly what i needed for my client http://www.filmtv-tracks.com/ musique libre de droit

Thank you

SurStudio

Looks good! Thanks for your message :)

Hello, whats the difference between this and the Dropdown Translate plugin you have other than looks? Are there any extra features/benefits in that 25 $ plugin of yours?

SurStudio

Hello,

no, the only difference is the user interface, and the settings that come along with that.

Cheers

Hi! This is a great plugin, with many customizable features and great customer service but the custom translation panel is so user-unfriendly. It takes too many clicks to make corrections going back and forth and the corrections that must be applied to all pages of the website (e.g. page names in the drop-down menus) have to be made in each and every cached page. This is a major disappointment…

SurStudio

No problem :)

Default-user

Yep, that worked great! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you

SurStudio

No problem! Glad to know it worked fine.

Pre sales question: hi, i would like to know-> 1) if it would b compatible with all of the themes available 2) if there is an auto translator, means we dnt need to edit each content in every language, n the content is auto-trnslated from some api like google translator 3) is there geo-location based auto-selection of language means, if i open website from china, it must translate it in chinese, by default.

quick answers would b appreciated, so that i can ask my client to buy quickly. :-)

SurStudio

Hello,

1) Yes, as far as the theme is barely decent built, that is, make the proper wp_head and wp_footer calls in the header and footer files.

2) Yes. The content is translated when someone asks for a translation, that is, someone clicking on a language.

3) No, it doesn’t have that feature.

Cheers

Pre Sale Query:

Hi there,

Can I have drop down option with this plugin, or- I have to buy the $25 plugin of yours. Is the $24 plugin capable of drop down and top bar options?

Thanks

SurStudio

Hello,

no, each plugin has its own user interface. This one comes as a form of a translation bar, and the other one as a drop down.

Cheers

HI, I’m getting this error http://postimg.org/image/jkgw3d4o5/ when i hover my mouse to translation tab. and it doesn’t translate.

SurStudio

Hello,

most likely you’re using the plugin as a widget. And the container of the widget (defined by the theme) has a style definition that prevents it from showing everything else outside the boundaries of that container:

overflow: hidden;

If you send me an actual link where I can see this, then I can tell you what to do to fix it.

Cheers

Any conflicts with “X Theme” which is running on http://storage-depot.com?

I’d want to simply put the translation in the menu. Most of these ‘translation’ options are dependent on widgets ~ which sucks! Every bit of our site is full width with ZERO widgets. So… we’re good to go, right? Thanks!

SurStudio

Hello,

I’m checking your website. Yes, the plugin can be placed anywhere, including your menu, using the advanced positioning settings. If you don’t know how to use them, then send an email after you have installed the plugin and I’ll help you out.

Cheers

I would like the language selector without flags and in native language.

How would I change Spanish to the word Español?

Simplified Chinese to ???

Traditional Chinese to ???

SurStudio

Hello,

go to the plugin’s admin page and then to:

Advanced > General > Javascript callbacks > On before initialize callback, remove the content and use this:

function(translator, options) {
    delete options._languages["SPANISH"];
    options._languages["ESPAÑOL"] = "es";
    delete options._languages["CHINESE_SIMPLIFIED"];
    options._languages["???"] = "zh-CN";
    delete options._languages["CHINESE_TRADITIONAL"];
    options._languages["???"] = "zh-TW";
}
Replace ??? with the Chinese words.

To remove the flags, go to:

General > Interface > Flags > No, don’t display the images flags

Cheers

I can’t thank you enough! Amazing plugin, amazing support

SurStudio

Thank you very much for your great review and rating! :)

Goorbet Purchased

Thanks for this great plugin. I want to display different images for different languages. how is it possible?

SurStudio

Hello,

glad you like the plugin.

Is possible to change images after a translation is completed, to do that you’ll have to use the JavaScript callbacks, see the Advanced tab.

I can give you more indications, but would be better if you can provide a URL and tell me an image you’d like to change, so I can tell you how to do that, and then you can repeat the procedure for all your images.

Not sure what’s your knowledge, but to do this customization you’ll need to know about jQuery selectors. Or you can also set a different id attribute for all the images you want to swap.

Let me know…

Cheers

very interested, but got a few questions:

1. Can I place the widget anywhere? say…at the top of a post content and under the title?

2. Can this plugin auto translate the page based on users’s browser language? Well, I mean I can set the possible languages, and unless if the user’s language is not enabled, it remains the same language.

SurStudio

Hello,

1. Yes, it can be placed anywhere. If your theme doesn’t have a widget area in your desired location, then you can use the advanced positioning settings.

2. No, it doesn’t auto translate based on the user’s browser.

Cheers

hi,

Could it translate all contents of website automatically ? how about accuracy? Could it support Bing API?  In China , Anyone can not open or use google all service , beacause it is blocked.
SurStudio

Hello,

1) Yes, it translates all texts of a web page. Images cannot be translated, but using the javascript callbacks can be swapped.

2) Internally uses Google Translate, so it’s Google accuracy.

3) No, it doesn’t support Bing API. But don’t worry because your website doesn’t connect to Google’s servers. It connects to a set of other servers, and those servers connect to Google.

Cheers
