License issue / non encrypted gtranslate pro

Postby Tribal6 » Wed Jan 09, 2013 12:20 pm

Hi there

As a webdesign-company, we bought yesterday a version of GTranslate Pro, as translate module for a clients new Joomla website.

To late (overlocked the FAQ-Section, my fault) I saw that the code of it is encrypted with zend’s ion-cube.
I either don’t want to be forced to install additionally Server-Extensions nor install software on a client’s website that we are responsible for but have no chance to check what this software/code actually does.

Because gtranslate becomes in Joomla as a Module part of the hole (Joomla-)Software, it inherits and automatically have to be distributed under the GNU GPL License v.2 as Joomla does.

This license grants the right, to receive a non-encrypted version of the ‘programm’, at least by a request.

So, my question ist : where can we get a actual version of gtranslate pro non encrypted, in plain text/php-code?

Kind regards

No, it is not possible. The GTranslate module is a joomla part and it is distributed under GNU/GPL license, however the Pro version is not a part of Joomla, it is a software which can be installed on any type of website including Joomla.

If you do not want to activate/install ionCube loader on your server you may consider GTranslate Enterprise version.
