Easy plugin translation platform with GlotPress tool: Translate "WP Document Revisions Simple Downloads"...
Note: All my plugins are internationalized/ translateable by default. This is very important for all users worldwide. So please contribute your language to the plugin to make it even more useful. For translating I recommend the awesome "Codestyling Localization" plugin and for validating the "Poedit Editor", which works fine on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Idea Behind / Philosophy: I just needed a simple downloads/ file manager plugin that used a custom post type for management. Since there are no such good download managers out there yet, but with the "WP Document Revisions" plugin there was an awesome solution. It only had few things missing in my opinion if used for public downloads/ file management. So finally, this add-on plugin was born. I hope you also find it useful somehow... :)
