    I just installed this plugin and have to say that it is in these days may be the best plugin for media for wordpress! But there is small thing, may be the issue. I am using WMPL for multilanguage sites and it seems that this plugin doesnt suppoort it :-( So my question is: Is there any way how to do multilanguage localization of labels (controls) on frontend ? Do the author of plugin plan to make support for WPML or do I have to check something somewhere in settings to have such support ?

    Thanks in advance for answer!

    Yes, it supports qTranslate, a simple, free and monkey-proof multilanguage plugin.

    qTranslate is fine, but for my purpose is WPML much better.

    Is there any way how to rename frontend text like control slideshow labels, etc. or where are these labels stored ?

    Maybe this could be suggestion for improvement in next release -
    1. put into settings custom name label definition. So user may change text to anything else without using any other translation plugin.
    2. some texts can be subtituted by pictures. For instance current label "Photo" can be substituded as standard windows picture of Image, then slideshow text (slow/stop/faster) can be substituted as control pictures that you have got on video recorder (like backward/stop/play/forward, etc.). Then this plugin can be simple and understandable in any language ;-) Of course some labels is hard to substitute by picture, but it is stil better then nothing.

    Static text is transatable the normal way. See: http://wppa.opajaap.nl/wppa-tutorial/how-to-translate-wppa/

    Using icons as substitute for 'labels' is a future development, although the artwork may be very much dependant of the theme used, so i have to supply various options for the pictures, like i have already various magnifiers. So it is not so siple as it looks.

    If you use custom name label definitions, it is not yet multilingual, you can, using qTranslate, like e.g. album name:
    [en:]My First Album[nl:]Mijn eerste Album[fr:]Mon Premier Album

    This system works throughut wppa+ for dynamic texts, static texts are in .po and .mo fies, see ../plugins/wp-photo-album-plus/langs/

    So, i think you just have to complete your language files as explaind in http://wppa.opajaap.nl/wppa-tutorial/how-to-translate-wppa/
