Weglot Is Now Part of the Tutor LMS Arsenal

Weglot is a powerful translation plugin that allows eLearning creators to easily translate their course content into multiple languages. With its user-friendly interface users can easily manage translations without any coding knowledge. 

We are happy to share that Weglot is now onboarded as an add-on with Tutor LMS. Users can expect seamless translation features with Weglot and Tutor LMS for an amazing eLearning experience. 

WPML Saw Some Compatibility Upgrades With Tutor LMS

We can already tell that this update has brought a lot of welcomed changes to translations and Tutor LMS for better multilingual support. WPML users can expect to have better translation with the frontend pages in Tutor LMS. The Course Builder now also has better translation compatibility with WPML. 

While a lot of the updates with WPML were under-the-hood enhancements, we have to add a special note for our users to enjoy a seamless experience using Tutor LMS. 

NOTE: When configuring the Language URL format for WPML, we recommend our users stick with the default selected setting; that is the “Different languages in directories” option.

Miscellaneous Improvements

This update has improved an aspect of the duplicate course feature. Duplicated course contents were all having the word “copy” included with the title, so if the original course had a quiz called “Quiz 1” the copy quiz was titled “Quiz 1 copy”. This was unintended and has been fixed. 

There have been multiple query management enhancements across many parts of Tutor LMS. With query optimization, certain Tutor LMS pages and tabs now have better load speeds as well, for example, the backend course pages, the course list page, the course details page, and many others.
