    As this plugin is by far the best tables plugin for WordPress it would be great if it were compatible with WPML for multilingual websites. I spoke with the developers of WPML and they said for the developer of this plugin to get in touch with them via their Go Global program as they help in getting your plugin multilingual and therefore compatible with WPML: http://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/go-global-program/

    Hi,

    thanks for your post.

    Unfortunately, at this time, I simply have to time to take part in this program.
    However, I don't see a problem, really: As far as I know from other users, you can simply create several copies of the table and translate them individually. In the different language versions of the posts/pages, you'll then just have to make sure that you use the correct corresponding Shortcode for the table.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thanks Tobias.

    That would be a suitable solution if I weren't making amends to the tables and so having to remember to amend each table is a bit tricky.

    Thanks anyway!

    Hi,

    yeah, I understand, but it's the only real solution that I see right now :-(

    I am going to have the same issue as greencode. I was hoping to use WPML, but maybe I will need to switch to a translation engine that does it right in the html or figure out some other method.

    Tobias, do you have a preferred translation system?

    Hi,

    my recommended way is to create different tables for the different languages, and then embed those via their respective Shortcode into the post/page of the corresponding language.
    The advantage of that approach is that it works with all translation plugins.

    Additionally, I know of people who are using "qTranslate" and "Multisite Language Switcher" with the plugin. I'm not into details of how they use those, though.

    By the way: WP-Table Reloaded has been replaced by TablePress. You should consider switching. Please see http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tablepress/ and
    http://tablepress.org/migration-from-wp-table-reloaded/ for more
    information.

    Regards,
    Tobias
