After trying out a few translation plug ins, that required separate translation per page and post, I was beginning to get bogged down with all the potential maintenance that could be involved.
Fortunately I discovered this totally brilliant plug in that is extremely easy to set up and use. Within a few minutes I was easily able to see my entire site in many many languages, and using Google translate API saves lots of messing around ensuring correct language files are installed. As a widget I was able to place it where I wanted, even can use via a separate tab. The real bonus in the set up is the custom CSS area and preview mode.
Excellent work, well thought out..... many thanks!
