Live Translate 1.1 released

I just released a new version of the Live Translate extension for MediaWiki.

Live Translate is a simple extension that allows live translation of wiki pages using Google Translate or (as of version 1.1) Microsoft Translator. It also enables you to define a “dictionary” of certain words or phrases and their translations; any word or phrase in the original text found in the “dictionary” will be translated using that dictionary, instead of using the Google/Microsoft translation service.

As you can deduce from the above description, one of the new features in version 1.1 is the ability to choose Microsoft Translator as translation service instead of Google Translate, which remains the default for now. The reason for the addition of this service is that Google has announced that it will be retiring it’s free machine translation services in a few months, which Live Translate is using. Another new feature is the ability to place comments into translation memories using the Live Translate Format. Full release notes can be found here.
