Global WordPress Translation Day – 4th Edition

The 4th edition of Global WordPress Translation Day (GWTD4) will take place on Saturday, 11 May 2019

This 24-hour global event will be dedicated to the translation of all things WordPress, from core to themes, and from plugins to marketing.

The event will be a celebration of the Make WordPress Polyglots Team, shining a spotlight on the thousands of volunteers worldwide who give their time and skills to make this online platform available to even more people.

During the last Global WordPress Translation Day, 71 local events took place worldwide, involving 29 countries.

We have published a template that can be used for your GWTD4 event.

More information including minutes from the planning meetings will be published on Make WordPress Polyglots P2 under #GWTD4 tag in the coming weeks.

If you are interested in helping with this event or following the discussion, you can also follow WordPress Slack #polygots-events channel.
