    I have read that Umbraco 8 will have Vorto (or something similar) as part of the core.

    This is great news but for those with Umbraco 7+ and Vorto will the upgrade be compatible and allow us to import from v7+Vorto to the new Umbraco 8 Core type?

    Good question, I would like to hear about this as well...

    It's highly unlikely that these will be upgradable without a set of explicit code within core to do so as I don't think the new feature is going to work anything like vorto.

    To be able to move from one to the other will either have to be manual, or some custom code would have to be included (which essentially would be bloatware, so unlikely)

    Vorto has always been a band aid so I've known it would become redundant from the start, but it has at least given people an option until v8 comes along with variations which will be a much better in built solution.

    Thanks for the reply Matt (and others).

    Obviously a tool to assist in an upgrade procedure from Umbraco v7 to v8 using Vorto would be great at some point next year, it would be interesting to see if this would be possible in anyway.

    Perhaps an export tool for Vorto on v7 to extract translations into a format that would be importable to the new format for v8.... anyway food for thought ;-)

    Awesome tool Vorto btw! :-)

    I have just written a health check for Umbraco 8 that looks for vorto properties and converts them to variants. Hope this helps:

    Follow the steps, i have used on my project and it works!
