Starting with version 3.4 of WordPress I faced a restructured handling of localization within the Core Files, can be read here: Important Changes for WordPress 3.4 Because I had to cope with this, the translation process of WordPress itself has been rewritten. The pugin now supports backward compatibility (for older WordPress versions) and also generates two new structured *.mo files. It depends on your installed version, if it's less than 3.4-alpha, than you will get the old files generated otherwise the new files.
The plugin stays for a long time at major version 1.x now and it was planned to come up with a new major release 2.x several month ago. But because of massive changes at the WordPress core, not having that much time I would need, the new major version will be delayed again. I can't estimate currently a timeframe for availability. That's why I continue maintainance of version 1.x as long as I'm working on version 2.x at alpha stage in parallel.
Introduced with version 1.99.17 of this plugin, the translation API's of Google and Microsoft have been integrated. Both require at least subscriptions and the Google API is a paid service. The plugin knows, which API is able to translated what language, so you will find the information next to your language file to be translated at the list. I did reshape the User Interface a bit more closer to WordPress Standard UI, so it should be more intuitive to use it from now on.
The german translation has been created with this plugin itself. Feel free to make your translation related to your native language. If you have a ready to publish translation of this plugin not pre-packaged yet, please send me an email. I will extend the package and remark your work at Acknowledgements.
