    Thank you! These are good tidings indeed, since I find this plugin so easy and intuitive to work with. Happy New Year!

    VERY GOOD NEWS – > how to help, what шд expect?


    I am really happy to hear about qTranslate-XT. I’ve been using it since the original version and look forward to using it again. Although I have used other’s like WPML, for many sites I prefer the ease of use of qTranslate. I’ve not participated in any plugins as of yet, but if you want to add another tester, please let me know.

    I’ve copied what was written on the Github link you posted, as many may not have followed that to read about it’s revival!

    The qTranslate-XT plugin is an eXTended version of qTranslate-X that we are reviving with a new community, since the original plugin is abandoned by its author. Our first goal is to maintain the essential features of this plugin with the last WordPress and PHP updates. The migration to Gutenberg will be a critical milestone for the survival of this plugin. We are currently building a new organization to give qTranslate a new life. Let’s try together, anyone is welcome to participate!

    Why not in the repo?
    Any plans to host it here later on?

    Happy to read your feedbacks!

    Sorry for not being much present on, i do this only on my limited spare time. Despite all its defaults, qTranslate-X and now -XT is definitely a project worth to keep alive, it’s still very popular and there are good reasons for that. It’s encouraging that so many users adopted -XT.

    The reason it’s not yet an official plugin is that qTranslate-XT is only a temporary project on github for ensuring a smooth transition. Keep in mind the original author disappeared and no one has access to the original repo, neither on WordPress, neither on github.

    Though -XT is already a considerable upgrade since qTranslate-X with many improvements, fixes, fusions of the legacy support plugins such as ACF, WooCommerce and tons of internal refactoring (all these questions are intertwined), it’s still too “binded” to qTranslate-X and therefore WordPress would not accept it, mostly because of trademark issues (despite being open source).

    Now the plan is quite clear:
    – finish the pressing fixes for a pre-release of Gutenberg support
    – move to a new repo
    – a huge and VERY much needed change of interface (API) to “reboot” from a viable code base
    – make the new one official in

    We’ll keep you updated, but the best for now is to follow us on github:

    Oooh yeah ! Such a good news you saved me 🙂

    Does q-Translate XT works well with Yoast SEO ?

    Thanks a lot !

    I have just found this post on q-translate XT. This is excellent news ! I have reluctantly been looking to change translation plugin for some time but hopefully this is no longer the case.


    Can I update directly from the original qTranslate (not qTranslate X) ?



    How do I update the plugin?
    I got site using it.
    These it work with forms plugins?

    Same question here. We are working on a qTranslate page – how do we update it?



    Can a website with Qtranslate-x plugin, with translated content, be updated to the new release on guthub without losing data ?

    The new plugin replacement with instructions can be found here :



    @parabrahman yes, you won’t lose data.



    @derda @mstudioil to update it, you need to install the github update plugin, it will take care of updating the qtranslate-xt plugin



    @marcobeccari how do I do that?
    download the zip file and upload it?
