Tuesday Trainings: How to Translate Community Team Resources
This year we’ve changed the format of Tuesday Trainings to better get directly at the issues that seem to be on the minds of folks in our community. How are we doing that? Great question. We’re either seeking to answer commonly asked questions or address commonly heard complaints, concerns, and confusions.
If there’s a question you’d like to see answered or a topic you’d like to see discussed, please share it in the comments or email me at email@example.com with the subject line Tuesday Trainings. Now onto this week’s topic.
This week’s question: How can I contribute to the Community Team as a translator?
As a non-English speaker, have you ever thought, “I wish this information were available in my language” when you are reading something published by Community Team contributors?
If you find any information that is likely to be valuable to your local community, we invite you to help us share the knowledge by translating it.
Before getting started, be sure to get in touch with others in the local community and work together.
Or any other resources that you think your language community can benefit from!

If you see a lot of confusion in your community with the transition to online events, it’s a good idea to provide translated information for reference. Please note these pages may change more often than others, as the Community Team updates the online event guidelines to adopt the community’s needs.
Some teams may decide to use their Rosetta site blog or page. There is no strict rule for where to publish the translated contents, as long as they are part of WordPress open-source properties (e.g., on a wordpress.orgWordPress.orgThe community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ subdomain site). It’s a good idea to discuss the best way with the Polyglots team members of your locale.
