    We are working hard on making this happen – making tweaks to the interface to make sure all strings fit, localizing the product catalog with its hundreds of products and options, and so on. Another couple of months… and we will be ready to show it!

        Well it does depend on how well the system was developed/architectured from the beginning. I can't comment on Zenfolio's system. I've worked on some systems that were relatively simple to make multilingual. Some were a pig.

        The description from the Zenmaster didn't inspire me, but one should not over analyse the words.

        I wish they'd get basic functionality working first (ability to search for own images) and kick their upstream ISP to get half-decent connectivity. Stuff that could be fixed within days...

        I do not believe this is going to be done soon ! To me it does not appear to be such a big job to make it multilingual !

        I have 2 schools that are aksing me to provide my services in french because of government policies.
        SERIOUSLY, how long will it take? My sessions are this september! I you can't provide an exact date I have to jump on plan B which to build an entire opencart website just for this.

        on 08.10.13 you wrote is is 6 month away, now is the 29.0714 what is over 9 month and now you tell us it is a couple of month away??? Maybe get a decend project manager, as the one what is in charge of this is clearly not qualified!!

        May we ask - how will this work please? Ideally I would like to have pages in 3 languages. Will that be possible? Will I have to pay extra for it?

        I'm so happy that you are working on it.

        To me it is a bit a pain in the ass moving all the pictures. So I will be "still" patient.
        But, as I want thinks moving I suggest make those guys noticing that this is important. At least we deserve explanations after the March deadline, long due.

        I suggest a last call by a general stop selling pictures during a week (August 1st to 7th). I am sure they will notice a lost on benefits.

        I am just finding the sudden flood or rush of "give us your money now, save a little" promotional mails uncomfortable. I make no specific allegation but it seems desperate. I've seen this type of behaviour before with unfortunate results.

        If only effort was given to actually developing the service. That one can't search one's own images is still a pretty big hole....

        October 2013: "so please understand that localization is about 6 months away." ???
        July 2014: Support tells me "We hope to add additional languages in the future and the good news is that this is in the planning stage.".

        In PLANNING stage? - Are you kidding???

        Waiting for multi-language support

        if this is complicated for you to do, let us users know. Probably there are some who are willing to help with the translation part. The programming part sits with you, I guess.

        Appreciate your feedback how soon we can expect this feature come true.

        I am glad "Pieter Maes" wrote this as it mirrors my feelings.

        To be clear, I make no allegations, but it is clear that there is a very, very sudden extra "rush for business" and that rings a few alarm bells. It might be unfortunate timing but when one part of the company consistently refuses to communicate (let alone innovate) and the product is effectively stale and only "tinkering" seems to happen, there's no way I'd be hassling my professional contacts to come to the Zenfolio family. As it is, I am more than likely to jump ship, lethargy being the key presently but I should decide as my renewal is due and.... well... the front line support is good but they are limited to what they can do.

        Multilingual, dire SEO and not even the ability to search your own images.... hardly rocket science or esoteric expectations in 2014.

      • Pieter MaesPieter Maes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Seriously, I am tired of messages like the one you mailed around to motivate us to ask friends to sign up for Zenfolio. There are two basis approaches for Zenfolio:
        1) live up to your own standards and launch the multi-language tool.
        2) in case of delay at least COMMUNICATE.

        Experiencing none of both makes me wonder if you are in trouble as a company... Or that there has been a take-over in the meanwhile.

        If anybody has a valuable alternatives I am open for suggestions and will look into them.
