We are currently refactoring the Gengo plugin since it is too  
complicated and does not work out of the box in Wordpress 2.6.
Currently we are in a phase that we can test some functionality in  
combination with other plugins and I must admit the tests are going  

We can translate pages, posts, permalinks and stuff very easy, and  
have an language switcher widget that works.


We have been mailing with the Gengo developer to ask him to  
participate in his project but he was not very willing.  So we decided  
to make a fork of his project and clean up things and stuff.  I'll  
keep the list informed when we have something that can be tested in
