Adds an extra panel to the post/page edit page which allows you to enter the META keywords & description for that page in each enabled language. Also adds an optional browser title override (does not affect post title).
Note 1: This plugin requires that qTranslate is installed and activated.
Note 2: This plugin does not work well with All In One SEO and potentially any other plugin or theme which tries to set your META tags.

- How do translate my site title/tagline?

[:en]English title[:it]Titolo italiano.
(This is a feature of qTranslate itself, not of qTranslate META).

This often has to do with your theme and any other plugins that may hook onto the
There is no straight answer for this, you simply have to figure out what’s going on and look closely at your theme,

header.phpfile. See the comments on this blog post for ideas.
- Why does it not work with AIOSEO / other SEO plugins?
Yes, I know this may be a drawback for some users. It may be possible that they can happily coexist, but I only developed this plugin for my own needs and don’t really have the time to make it play nice with other SEO plugins, sorry! :/
- Why do I get a warning when downloading the META summary to Excel?
When doing this you will get a warning saying:
The file you are trying to open, '...', is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted sources before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?
This is normal, because the file generated is not actually Excel but HTML. However Excel will successfully convert it, so just click yes to the warning and then save a copy of the downloaded file.
