Many thanks to Arnound for your response to my previous post "qtranslate with Wordpress 3.3.2". We went ahead and worked with qtranslate and, yes, we are very happy with this tool. We had an expert helping us with the initial set up, but not anymore. I don't know if you or anyone else has any advice about whether it is a good idea for inexperienced people to update Wordpress and qtranslate. I understand for security issues it is a good idea to continue to update.
