v1.x Upgrade instructions:

Delete your old translate database
Delete translate.php, translateflags.php and overloadcache.txt
Delete both translate plugins
Delete code added to header, footer or navbar template
Delete /flags/ folder

Follow the install instructions above

This version requires a fresh install.

Features coming in next version:

* Meta description and meta keywords will be translated in the output source code, better for SEO and search engine indexing

It honestly is a vast improvement, it may take a while on the first load but once its cached the page loads in a matter of seconds

There is a problem or I may be getting this wrong, the Chinese simplified shows it all like this:

电脑,游戏和技术 ( 1查看)
青少年交谈,并获得咨询有关的游戏,电脑,技术和更多的对我们的青少年论坛。

Is that right?

Caching will always take some time, there is work to be done, the page is being translated on the fly but this version makes caching faster to, as much as possible.

What is wrong with Chinese? Looks like Chinese to me he he.

I wasnt sure if it was chinese lol just looks like a load of odd symbols with numbers on them to me

It is much faster once the pages have been cached. Just tested it and it only takes a few seconds to translate not 30 seconds once cached etc

Having so many new pages (translated pages) in your website might raise red flags for Google.

Do you think this is legit with Google TOS ?

Nevertheless, this is a brilliant idea.
Thanks for your time.

Yep, it's pretty much perfect speed wise on my forums.

I just check your forum, Chinese and all others for that matter are working fine.

Thanks.

shouldnt you have a english flag on there? there is no way to goto english if ur in another language. if someone clicks the language by accident they wouldnt know how to go back to english.

It is bad for SEO so it is best removed, I am sure they could easily click your logo or something to get back

It is probably a grey area, it's original content and was once created by members so is not technically automated or junk content.

There have been similar scripts before I did this for vB, the other scripts has issues but did work. A few friends and I have been using these other scripts that are out for years and never had anything bad happen.

Although this idea may be new to you and others, it's been around a long time, other coders tried using the actual Google Translate website, this was slow and buggy but did work. Goggles new Translate API service is why I thought I'd try my luck.

If you click any url is goes back to your base language anyway. Most people only view one page, so it really doesn't matter.
