Хочу поблагодарить разработчика, с этим плагином быстро можно перевести тему если есть api ключи для переводчиков. В ручную можно перевести, но долго ) Удобный поиск по фразам.

After reading the docs and beginner manual (30 min.), and without a doubt with the excellent support from Tim to help solve an issue which wasnt even caused by the plugin, Im getting edits and translations done faster than I thought I would. There`s a reason that of of today, 323 out of 333 reviews are 4~5 stars. The only thing I would suggest is maybe add 2~3 How To videos in the support docs. Some of the terminology in the explanations isn`t geared for non-techy users. Thank you. Very much appreciated.

Потребовалось некоторое время понять как работает плагин, я обычно все делаю по старинке и ручками, загружаю все в директорию сайта. А тут все автоматом, все на живую! Сразу! Без возни с файлами! Вии-и-и-и! Я в восторге! Боже это восхитительный плагин! Спасибо!
