Fluency - Integrated DeepL Powered Content Translation


FireWire

I just started using it on the client project I mentionned a while ago and it's working amazingly, thank you so much for your hard work !

I have one suggestion / request though: could there be a way to add a string at the end of the translation automatically ? Something like "(translated with DeepL)". Ideally as an option per text field ?

I'm seeing from the source code that ___executeData() is hookable, would you suggest to go this way ? Editing the returned json ?

Thank you in advance for your feedback / help.

It would be pretty complex to create settings for that in the module config on a per-field basis and I think it might be too much of an edge case to implement in the module directly so I think hooking would be your best bet on this. Using `addHookAfter();` is the way to go.

Just remember to test the output of `___executeData()` as it returns different types of data depending on the request, see each case in the switch statement in the `___executeData()` method. Here's some quick info that might help you get up to speed more quickly.

All of the return values from `___executeData()` have the same data structure for predictability when used. At the very least each return value has `data` and `httpStatus` properties/values. A good way to make sure you are dealing with a translation is to decode the JSON (we'll say it's assigned to $decodedResponse), and then look for `$decodedResponse->data->translations;`. If the `translations` property exists in `data` then you know it's a translation. You would want to append your string to `$decodedResponse->data->translations[0]->text;`, encode `$decodedResponse` again, then return the modified JSON..

I'm not sure how you would be able to detect what field has been translated though because the return data from `___executeData()` doesn't contain any field name so your hook would append to all multi-language fields. Let me know if you can't find a workaround for this and I'll see if I can help.

Dunno if that is what you were looking for but hope it helps!

I’m not quite sure if this is of interest for anyone and if this is the right forum for my post, but I got the client request to build a module extension for Fluency which translates all the text fields in a page with only one click. The module is not really ready for public (or the modules section), as it has no config page yet and was only tested in one ProcessWire installation, but maybe it is useful as a starting point for anyone who is in the same situation as me:

https://github.com/robertweiss/ProcessTranslatePage

The module checks for fluency-translate permissions and adds a ›Translate and save‹-button to the edit-page. It supports all core language fields, Repeater, FieldsetPage the pro modules Repeater Matrix, Combo and Functional Fields.

Caution: for now, the (language-)settings have to be manually edited in the hookPageSave-Method (Lines 64–69).

I had initially written off mass translation because after seeing the time it took to translate one or two fields I thought it could be a big holdup for the user. Have you run into any situations where a whole page runs into problems?

This is really awesome work!

Thank you, this would not be possible without your excellent module!

I just pushed a new version to Github. The module got some additional features:

  • A config page where you can exclude templates and toggle whether you want to overwrite already existing translations
  • The language selection now uses the settings made in the Fluency config instead of having to configure it twice 😅 
  • Support for more than one target language (I never needed that but thought it would be nice to have in the future)
  • Support for the ProField Table

About the performance: I share your concerns, but my client still forced me to do it 😄 The largest page I tested had 63 fields (25 textfields, 14 file-descriptions, 24 richtext-fields) and took about a minute to translate, so you really have to take care of the php timeout-settings. To bypass that, I added a small external translate-pagetree script to the repository which can be used in the command line, so you can batch-translate multiple parts of the website (or all of it) at once. As this is not tested very well, a database-backup is recommended before trying!

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      This module implements the website live chat service from tawk.to. Actually the module doesn't have to do much. It just need to inserted a few lines of JavaScript just before the closing body tag </body> on each side. However, the module offers additional options to display the widget only on certain pages.
      Create an account
      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Open the module settings
      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      Screencasts
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      Exclusions
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
