OTGS March News

March 30, 2020

March has been a difficult month with the COVID-19 pandemic and at OTGS we have kept busy ensuring our customers have our best support. We continue adding requested features and fixes as well as making performance improvements. Here are some of the projects we have carried out this month.

Toolset News

During March, we focused on compatibility and integration. We just released a minor update for Views and Blocks, that addresses some glitches with the soon-to-be-released WordPress 5.4.

In addition, we continued our efforts to improve the Toolset experience on WPML-based multilingual sites.

We are also finishing a new batch of features. This time we focused on media elements that will extend the capability of Toolset Blocks to create complete sites.

As always, we keep an eye on our support forum, and we reduced our backlog of pending tickets raised by our supporters. New updates for Toolset Forms and other plugins are coming soon with a number of fixes and performance improvements.

What’s new in WPML?

We are continuing the development of our major release WPML 4.4.0. The main goal is to provide tighter integration with our Advanced Translation Editor.

We will also include improved user experience regarding:

  • Finding compatible add-ons for the installed plugins
  • Finding translation services in your country

Bugfix releases and Compatibility

We have also released a minor version of WPML to address a deprecated hook in WordPress 5.4. Now, we’re working on a big-fix version of WPML to release before 4.4.0 and which will address many of the most wanted fixes requested by users.

There are extra fixes coming from our Compatibility Team. They are working on keeping plugins and themes compatible with WPML while developing new features as well. The next release of WPML will include fixes for Divi, Avada, Elementor, and Beaver Builder.

We released WooCommerce Multilingual 4.8.0, which includes bug fixes for WooCommerce 4.0, compatibility issues with the user’s “order completed” email and addresses several compatibility issues for third-party plugins.

We released Yoast SEO Multilingual 1.1.0, with some fixes for redirects and images in sitemaps. If you are a WPML user you can log in and find the list of fixes.

Compatibility and Partnerships

WPForms have announced the compatibility with WPML via their blog and also on their social media channels, including Facebook, and Twitter.

Translation partners

This month our partners launched beautiful and very informative pages about WPML.

If you are looking to work with a translation agency from Denmark, World Translation may be your best choice. Now, they have a dedicated page about how they work with WPML.

Dadan, from Poland also announced to their clients that they offer website translations via WPML.

This month our Translation Partners also started to learn more about WooCommerce translation. So, if you are thinking of moving from physical to e-commerce, our partners are ready to translate your site.
