Global WordPress Translation Day 4 – Info for event organizers

The fourth Global WordPress Translation day is happening on Saturday May 11th 2019 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 – #GWTD4.

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 call for local event organizers 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 4

Let’s get together and translate everything WordPress!
