OTGS August News

August 31, 2020

We spent this month testing and polishing the big upcoming releases for both WPML and Toolset. The final pieces are falling into place and everything is getting ready to announce it to clients. Besides this, we’re always busy with new things related to compatibility, partnerships, and support.

Toolset News

This month, the Toolset team has focused on completing a major milestone focused on compatibility. We are close to releasing a new experience to build complex and multilingual sites using post relationships and WPML. We are also providing new and exciting ways to extend and design your online WooCommerce shop.

Besides this, we also had some minor updates to address, some glitches with the most recent version of WordPress.

To get more news, visit our Toolset blog.

WPML News

WPML 4.3.18 – 4.3.19 – We have released a couple of minor versions to address some warnings related to deprecated jQuery functions.

WPML 4.4.0 – We are in the final sprint of the development for this version.

We’ve spent the last weeks polishing the user interface, fixing some defects and running intensive QA.

This version will bring a series of important features aimed to help to streamline the workflow of translating content.

A future version will further improve this experience, but for now, users can:

  • Easily create copies of sites without causing side effects in pending translation jobs
  • Translate strings like any other type of content
  • Easily select which “Admin strings” (e.g. options from themes or plugins) must be set as translatable
  • Recommend “glue plugins” to help translating content created with other plugins and themes
  • Have a full integration with Toolset products
  • Use a new interface in the “Translator Tools” tab (for the Advanced Translation Editor)

News about our Advanced Translator Editor

Advanced Translator Editor (ATE) now offers the option to use Google as a translation engine. 

Compared to Microsoft Azure, the engine available so far, Google offers more language pair options.

Check out the full announcement on our WPML Blog.

Compatibility

We released WCML 4.10.0 which allows users to display specific currencies and payment gateways based on the customer’s IP address or billing address rather than the site language. 

We will be announcing the compatibility of newly tested plugins next week and add them to our compatibility list.
