This plug-in works good. however giving 2 star due to its using LTTE Flag (Terrorist group) for language Tamil instead of using flag of India. pls fix that. and I'll rated this plug-in 5 stars.

Flags not showing
By , for WP 4.3

I installed this on my WordPress sites that use Raindrops theme and it says the plugin is compatible with the theme but the Flags don't appear and what remains is an empty space where the flags should be BUT the things is that the flags are there as I can click on the empty spaces and tell that there are invisible flags and get a translation of one language or another. Here is an example: http://www.sport-betting-links.com/ The widget is on the right sidebar near the top.

Giving Error with wordpress 4.3
By , for WP 4.3

Hey There, It was working fine until I updated the plugin to the latest version that is 5.0.0 on my blogs http://www.teckalacarte.com and http://www.bloggersbooks.com . The moment I activated I started getting this weird error at the footer of the blog. Initially it was not happening, not sure what went wrong with this updated. I tried to deactivate and activate No luck!, I also tried to remove and install again but again no luck. Kindly help. Thanks.

jQuery(document).ready(function(a){a("a.nturl").on("click",function(){function l(){doGoogleLanguageTranslator(default_lang+"|"+default_lang)}function n(){doGoogleLanguageTranslator(default_lang+"|"+lang_prefix)}default_lang="en",lang_prefix=a(this).attr("class").split(" ")[2],lang_prefix==default_lang?l():n()}),a("a.flag").on("click",function(){function l(){doGoogleLanguageTranslator(default_lang+"|"+default_lang)}function n(){doGoogleLanguageTranslator(default_lang+"|"+lang_prefix)}default_lang="en",lang_prefix=a(this).attr("class").split(" ")[2],a(".tool-container").hide(),lang_prefix==default_lang?l():n()}),0==a("body > #google_language_translator").length&&a("#glt-footer").html("

Has troruble working with IE
By , for WP 4.3

The translation does not work with IE on the front page only, but will work on all other pages.

IF you load the front page, the UK logo is only visible, however if you load any other page all of the icons (flags) appear.

Best plugin Translate
By , for WP 4.2.2

Thanks very good if you could add a function we can easily arrange where to put translate , Example up the right corner Thanks....

Not flexible
By , for WP 4.1.1

Excellent translations.

There is one problem. If you have a page in, for example, English and select Spanish from the drop-down it will translate that page from English to Spanish - and also translate all other pages into Spanish including your ADMIN pages.

If you happen to have any other page already written in Spanish manually, Google translator still will attempt to translate that Spanish page into Spanish again and it will make a mess of it.

There seems to be no way to say "turn off Google Translator" for any selected page. Once you select a language every page will be translated and stays stuck in that language until the user selects another.

So you cannot use this if you already have manually translated pages into another language.

Great translator plugin / easy to use
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin has just enough settings and options to make it worthwhile and easy to use. Can easily produce a simple or complex widget layout quickly and it fits with most theme designs well. Great job!
