How to install WP google Language Transliteration plugin?

You can install this plugin like any other wordpress plugin. Unzip the contents of the downloaded zip file into your `/wp-content/plugins/` directory and activate it. That is all.

You will find a language drop-down getting added on to your wordpress admin pages, namely “Add New Post” and “Add New Page”.Simply choose the language of you choice and start editing the content phonetically in English script. Every word gets automatically transliterated, upon pressing the space bar, on your keyboard. Note that this is not the same as translation — it is the sound of the words that are converted, from one character set to the other (Roman to Devangiri), and not their meaning.

This plugin also adds a language selection drop-down to your comment form, thereby letting your visitors to comment in languages of their choice!!! Find below a few screenshots.

    • @Ubaid I have fixed and released a new version for that newtag error. Can you check out?

      • Hi Suhas, Quick response of yours. However, as i mentioned before, i am not able to download the plugin from here. The download link over there says “File Not Found”. Can you provide me with an alternate link for download. sorry if i am missing out few known things here :)

  11. Sorry for the previous post, got it downloaded. however i dont see anything in the drop down, both ofr firefox and ie7. get this js error in ie7,

    transliterationControl is Null or Not an object.

    i get this only when i click on the checkbox on the post-new page..

    • I am not sure why you get that error as I find it working correctly in firefox and IE6 now. I don’t have IE 7 to test it. Are you behind a firewall? or does your access to google servers restricted?

      How about comments box and when you try to create a new page?

      • detailed error msg, on IE8

        still facing the same issue, not able to populate anything in the drop down. for post as well as pages. comments r disabled in mine, so cant chek those. i am not behind any firewall and able to access all google servers too. tried on firefox 3.0.14 and firefox 3.5 as well as ie7 and ie8 now… should search for someone with ie6..

  12. Is there an option to set Default Language, since right now Arabic is shown as default language

    • The dropdown has the languages in alphabetic order.So you will have to manually select the language.

  13. Great plugin. Im using this plugin with out much problem in my WPMU blog. But, the size of the textarea in HTML editor mode is quite large and exceeding the size of the screen. Can you please explain if there is any method to resolve that bug.

    Thanks in advance.

    • @chandu, i don’t think it has got anything to do with this plugin…

  14. Hi Suhas,

    I was using your plug in and it was great. I installed WordPress 3.0 version few minutes ago and the plug in stopped working as it was doing before. Now the drop down in the HTML editor doesn’t show anything. Is there any problem with the version support?

    Please help.

    Thanks,
    Sailesh.

    • Hi Sailu, I just upgraded to wordpress 3.0 and checked the plugin and it works well.What is the issue that you are facing and which is the site?
