Symptoms

Upgrading the String Translation add-on plugin to version 2.4.1.1 causes a fatal error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM

This happens when the version of PHP installed is lower than 5.3.

Workaround

We recommend upgrading PHP to at least 5.3 and to follow WordPress statements on why it’s strongly advised to upgrade PHP.

If an upgrade of PHP is not an option, we provide a package with the compatibility fix:

  1. Download the upgrade package.
  2. Extract the package: you will get 4 files
  3. Copy these files in wpml-string-translation/classes/upgrade

This fix will be also included in the next version of String Translation.
