I have and am working on providing a translation platform for all plugins (code and readmes), and the related internationalization of the plugins directory and APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways..

@nacin has done some work on being able to install plugins (and themes?) in the same locale as a WordPress install, when set.

I’ve read that @dd32 has been looking into translating the new themes directory (info in theme headers, from styles.css) and probably API.

@samuelsidler (who is away this week) and I would like to organize a general chat in #meta-i18n sometimes during the week of April 13th, so we can map out everything in front of us, and push on all of them together.

Chat date/time suggestions: April 14th, at 2000 UTC (same time range as core chat, 1 day before).
