Translating Composr v10

Posted 11 April 2015, 12:21 AM
Hi all,

This week one of our awesome long-term translators approached me regarding translating v10.

This enthusiasm has prompted me to pull-forward our plans for refreshing our translation platform.

We've been using Launchpad for quite some time. Launchpad was a big step up from people manually doing translations on their own or privately between people, as it removed the chance of people dropping out without sharing partial progress, and removed the need for lots of manual…

The eagle-eyed may notice some other renames going on, beyond ocPortal->Composr.

For example, OcCLE will be Commandr, and OCF will be Conversr.

CEDI/WIKI and new system

Dear Chris,
I congratulate you on the progress you have pursued and achieved with OcPortal!
I haven't done much with the system lately, since you have made so many new enhancements, I am anxious to take up where I left off.
What would be involved to bring my site forward to this new version? Is your availability reasonable to help with that? Have you saved the credentials I provided to access it? (The site is at
Also, I understand the announcement was part 1/5, will future ones cover CEDI/WIKI? That feature of OcPortal has always been of special interest to me.
Lastly, will the new version be mobile optimized, will it satisfy the Google challenge for higher ranking?
Thank you for your attention, again, nice work!!
Hi Les,

Thanks :).

Composr v10 is not out yet, and we've not given a release date or roadmap. So at this time we're not ready to talk about upgrading users. The plan is to put up a roadmap for migrating from ocPortal, once we start beta testing. It's best to open a ticket with us soon after the final non-beta version is released and ask us there.

All the 5 announcements have been posted already so you'll find them in the news archive. It's important to bear in mind that essentially we're moving a lot forward in terms of making the product much more consistent, better designed, easier to use, better architected, better documented, etc – but when it comes to adding new features, this is in most cases something we need our users to sponsor. Off the top of my head I can't think of any major new Wiki+ features that were sponsored, but we did make a number of design improvements to Wiki+ as a part of our overall design upgrade process.

ocPortal is already mobile optimised since a long time ago :). We have the dedicated mobile mode, which smartphones automatically will use. When Google crawls sites for mobile indexing it does use a user-agent that will trigger that. If there are specific things that don't look as good on mobile as they should, those can be reported as bug reports. A lot of people think "mobile optimised" means "responsive design", but really that's a whole different discussion and not related to SEO – we're planning an extensive tutorial for v10 that talks about both mobile mode and responsive design, and which is most appropriate for different kinds of sites.

There are too many online users to list.
