This article describes how automatic translation works. For Manual Translation description please see here: http://www.vbenterprisetranslator.com/forum/vbet4-general-discussions/3166-manual-translations.html
If you want to avoid translation of part of the text, see here: How to make some text not translated? (http://www.vbenterprisetranslator.com/forum/vbet4-general-discussions/3168-how-make-some-text-not-translated.html).

I don't know how much you are impressed by multi language support till now and hope you will be impressed even more when you find out how easy it is in usage :D

First of all mod supports user default language. It is set in registration form and can be changed in User CP. So if user has set his default language, then he does nothing... Just writes posts in his language, and vBET takes care about everything. In such case - when user has set default language it is assumed that whole post (including title) is written in his default language. It will be configurable soon, but at his moment there is simple assumption: if user has set default language and it is different than forum default language, then each his message is in language which he choose as his default.

You can also create multi language messages, where only parts of message are in different languages. This is very easy - everything what you need to do it put text written in different language inside of lang BBCode. It takes one parameter which is the language code. I.e. if you want to write something in Polish, then BBCode looks like this lang=pl.
See whole example (spaces in BBCode added to avoid evaluation):
[ lang=pl]Przykład tekstu po polsku[ /lang]

This example (without spaces in BBCode) will give you such result:
Example of text in Polish

There is also one more BBCode which works exactly as lang BBCode, but it's reserved for posts titles only. It is langtitle BBCode - it is used by vBET to automatically mark message of user which set theirs default language other than forum default language. It shouldn't be used manually, and if you want to use it such way, then remember to put whole message inside of lang BBCode using same language code as parameter in booth BBCodes (otherwise some parts of translated RSS channels can be not translated appropriately, but posts will be shown appropriately).

Since vBET 3.2.0 you can also use automatic language detection. So in case if user will write a message without lang BBCode, then vBET will automatically recognize what is the language of this message and mark it appropriately. You can even choose when to trust automatic language detection and when to trust message author :)

Is there a way to update the cache if the Google Translation is not exactly correct? Admins can edit the original post, but can they provide a better human translation in place of content from the Enterprise Translator?

We were thinking about it (such translations could be marked to avoid deletion from cache), but unfortunately Google does not allows for that. According to Google conditions you are not allowed to modify results of Google translations. So we cannot add such possibly.

We cannot do that, but we are thinking about better integration with vBulletin phrases. It is not investigated yet but it is on our TODO list, to make possible to use on translated pages also appropriate phrases. This solution will not handle better posts translations, but it will handle your issue with all vBulletin texts. You will only need to install phrases fro some language and it will be done. Those are our plans in this area :)

Please use lang BBCode or set your default language in User CP - just as described in this manual :)

Wow, really great.

wow great

I'm glad you like it :) And - you do not have to use lang bbcode if you are writing in forum language. In this case "wow great" don't have to be in lang BBCode - this BBCode is to support messages written in different languages that your forum has.

Just look on your URL - you are looking on translated page :) Simply click English flag and you will see whole forum in English - including your messages which was written in Thai :)

Korean translations are supported :) Simply Google didn't recognized the language by sentence and we had to add lang BBCode manually. As you see now - it translates fine :)

At this moment manual translation is still in BETA version so it is not described on forum yet.

Shortly: you need to have appropriate usergroup (configurable).
Then you see button "Enable Manual Translation" with flags.
After enabling you can edit easilly - just move mouse cursor over text and click Edit button which will appear.

Also please see options in Admin CP -> vBET Manual Translations
