Translator Plugin Gold Features

Automatic machine translation in 41 languages
Eight translation engines are used to get the best possible >translation we could find for each language (and to provide automatic failover support).
Support SEO friendly nice urls for translated pages

Translator Plugin Gold provides search engine friendly nice permalinks / url for translated pages in blogs which use nice permalinks. For example if url of one of your blog post is then the url of Portuguese version of your page will be and your Japanese version of your page will be

Note: Translator Plugin Gold automatically adjusts itself to the blog permalink structure. In blogs using the nice permalinks, the translated pages are generated as described above. However in sites using the default permalinks structure, Translator Plugin Gold uses the same default query string format for translated pages. While it is recommended that you use nice permalink structure for SEO and other reasons, Translator Plugin Gold works both with and without nice permalink structure. The plugin will adopt to your preference.

Bookmarkable translated pages
The translated pages are bookmarkable in any browser or in third party tools and services like They are indistinguishable from any other pages in your site if your site uses nice permalinks.

Multiple virtual sites (silo implementation)
Your user needs to select the language of his choice once and he will be subsequently provided with translated version of all pages of the blog. So he can browse any number of pages within your blog, all automatically translated. In other words a French user browsing, for example, will continue to browse the whole site in French. All his links will be to French translated version of the content. He may never realize that the original site is in English. This implements silo structure for your website which is an essential component of SEO.
Intelligent Superfast caching engine

Translator Plugin Gold uses an intelligent caching engine to cache the translated pages. It uses advanced algorithms to determine when a page cache requires to be refreshed and marks it as such. It also uses background processing to refresh stale pages (based on priority) in cache. The caching engine helps Translator Plugin Gold to achieve dramatic performance improvements. The cached pages are compressed in database to minimize space requirements. The caching engine is extensively configurable. It can happily co-exist with other caching engines like wp-cache 2 or WordPress object cache. Read more »

Multiple engine failover support
Translator Plugin Gold provides automatic multiple translation engine failover support. Translator Plugin Gold uses 5 translation engines. These engines can sometimes fail due to multiple reasons, some temporary, some requires variety of actions on our part to make it happy again. On failure we automatically switch to the next available engine and continue till we get an engine to serve the translated page or run out of engines. Read more»
Advanced Load balancing

Continuous availability of translation service is a key objective. Frequent queries to translation engines can overload their services and they in turn can disable translations from your site for short (24 hours) or long duration. We have several features in place to reduce the load on translation engines like, for example:

  • Short duration Overload Protection - We prevent too frequent queries to the same engine in a short period of time to avoid tripping their overload detectors.
  • Prioritize human requests - We prioritize translation requests from human over robots to manage translation engine load.
  • We provide intelligent caching to serve most pages from cache

Translator Plugin Gold comes with premium features for reducing the apparent load on translation engines:

Multiple IP support
Most popular websites, running on dedicated servers, has multiple IP addresses which can be leveraged in Translator Gold. If you have, for example, 5 IP addresses then you can specify all of these addresses in Translator Gold options which will then be used to distribute your calls to the translation engine. So, for example, if you use 5 IP addresses then the effective load from one IP address will be reduced to 1/5 of the actual load thereby greatly reducing the chance of tripping the high load detectors on translation engines.
Tor support
We support proxying your request to translator engines through the tor network. This helps to anonymize the translation requests and frees you from load limitations imposed by translation engines on specific IP addresses. We also support HTTP proxying.
