    Absolutely brilliant post, made some excellent finds, like Gravity and Scribe.

    One cool plugin I came across was Transfluent (http://transfluent.com). They offer “effortless, near real-time professional translation to social media feeds and websites”. With their WP plugin you can have your website in 50 languages if you wish, all professionally translated.

    Here’s an example of one site using them: http://www.rochardthegame.com/ (also the site where I ran into Transfluent in the first place)
    Cheers.

    Wow, what a great list of cool WordPress plugins. I especially like the “Styles with Shortcodes” plugin as it has some really nice shortcodes which will make our live so much easier. Now, I like to use shortcodes to format certain information or text on my blogs to make them stand out.
