Global WordPress Translation Day 3 – Info for event organizers

The third Global WordPress Translation day is happening on Saturday September 30th 2017 and we’re inviting everyone who wants to help translate WordPress, themes, and plugins into their own language, to join us for a 24-hour global translation sprint – #WPTranslationday.

The Global WordPress Translation Day is managed by the WordPress Polyglots Team.  It is a huge, global, translation marathon that will bring thousands of Polyglots together on the same day for a 24-hours live event and for hundreds of synced local events.

As Meetup or WordCamp organizers, you are the Polyglots team’s best allies for this event. Please have a look at their post about the event for all of the details.

Once you have made the decision to organise a local event for this day, here is a handy event template that the Polyglots team put together for you to use:

Event Title: Global WordPress Translation Day 3

Event Description:

Global WordPress Translation Day is a 24-hour global event dedicated to the translation of the WordPress ecosystem (core, themes, plugins).

This is a unique and innovative event – a cool mix of digital and physical: A 24-hour live stream on https://wptranslationday.org that will provide inspiration and training to both coders and translators on localizing and internationalizing. In addition to that, we will come together to learn about internationalization (i18n) and localization (L10n), as well as to translate WordPress, plugins, and themes.

Make sure to come with your laptop. We can help you create a wordpress.org account in case you don’t have one yet.
