Welcome to Google Language Translator! This plugin allows you to insert the Google Language Translator tool anywhere on your website using shortcode.
***IMPORTANT: Google's most recent server update is producing display issues for website translation tool. There are major display issues with the translation toolbar and also the translations editing interface. Version 2.9 temporarily hides the edit translation functionality until Google decides to fix this issue, although you can still edit translations directly through your Google account at translate.google.com. Please direct any support requests through WordPress.org and we will be happy to assist you.
Added Google Analytics tracking capability to the plugin.
Added a "CSS Styles" box in the settings panel.
Changed the Catalonian flag to its correct flag image.
Fixed coding issues that previously updated options incorrectly, which is why many users experienced display issues. All options are now initialized upon plugin activation, which should fix this issue permanently.
Fixed a glitch in our usage of the translate API. Previously, when the user clicked the default language, it would toggle back and forth between the default language and "Afrikaans" language. Now, users will see the correct language displayed at all times, no matter how many times it is clicked.
Eliminated an internal WordPress error being generated from a coding mistake.
Added a default option for the Translator alingment. Previously, this was causing the plugin to disapppear.
Added a "Preview" area on the settings page that allows you to see your settings in action.
Added custom flag support for all languages (custom flags available ONLY when selecting the "ALL Languages" setting.
Added an option that allows left/right alignment of the translation tool.
Added the "Google Language Translator" widget.
Updated googlelanguagetranslator.php to properly register setting in the admin settings panel.
Added language "Portuguese" and "German" to the Original Language drop-down option on the settings page.
Changed flag image for the English language (changed United States flag to the United Kingdom flag).
Added link in the settings panel that points to Google's Attribution Policy.
Added language "Dutch" to the Original Language drop-down option on the settings page.
Added a new CSS class that more accurately hides the "Powered by" text when hiding Google's branding. In previous version, the "Powered by" text was actually disguised by setting it's color to "transparent", but now we have set it's font-size to 0px instead.
2.0 Corrected some immediate errors in the 1.9 update.
Added 7 flag image choices that, when clicked by website visitors, will change the language displayed, both on the website, AND in the drop-down box (flag language choices are limited to those provided in this plugin).
Added 6 additional languages to the translator, as provided in Google's most recent updates ( new languages include Bosnian, Cebuano, Khmer, Marathi, Hmong, Javanese ).
Corrected a minor technical issue where the Czech option (on the backend) was incorrectly displaying the Croatian language on the front end.
Added jQuery functionality to the settings panel to improve the user experience.
Added an option for users to display/hide the flag images.
Added an option for users to display/hide the translate box when flags are displayed.
Removed the settings.css file - I found a better way of displaying the options without CSS.
1.8 Modified google-language-translator.php to display the correct output to the browser when horizontal layout is selected. Previously, it was not displaying at all.
1.7 Modified google-language-translator.php so that jQuery and CSS styles were enqueued properly onto the settings page only. Previously, jQuery functionality and CSS styles were being added to all pages of the WordPresss Dashboard, which was causing functionality and display issues for some users.
1.6 Added "Specific Language" support to the plugin settings, which allows the user to choose specific languages that are displayed to website visitors.
1.5 Added "Original Language" support to the plugin settings, which allows the user to choose the original language of their website, which ultimately removes the original language as a choice in the language drop-down presented to website visitors.
1.4 Corrected display problems associated with CSS styles not being placed correctly in wp_head.
1.3 HTML display problem in the sidebar area now fixed. Previously, inserting the [google-translator] plugin into a text widget caused it to display above the widget, instead of inside of it.
1.2 Shortcode support is now available for adding [google-translator] to text widgets. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
1.1 The shortcode supplied on the settings page was updated to display '[google-translator]'.
