Weekly i18n Chat Notes – July 14, 2015

We had our weekly chat today and talked about a few things.

  • Forums: We’re still waiting for one issue to get fixed in bbPress before we can enable initial forums for the Italian community.
  • Translate: Lots of great progress.
    • Design implementation is done.
    • Paging is done. Basic search is part of it as well.
    • Import scripts are done for themes and in-progress for plugins.
    • @dd32 tested an import of all themes and it works! 🎉
    • Role plugin design changes are still pending, but the design is ready, so it’s just a matter of implementation.

Because of the progress on themes, we think we can do the initial import for themes very soon. It’s know that there will be issues, especially in categorizing and sorting through all ~1500 active themes that will be imported. We’ll work through those issues, fix them, and be ever-more ready for plugins.

Also, because we’re so close, I posted on make/polyglots and make/themes to give them the heads up and added some documentation to the translator handbook to walk through how some of this will work on their end.

As we get closer to the initial import of plugins, there will be a post on make/plugins and we will email plugin authors ahead of time, with a specific date, so they have an opportunity to commit any missing translations to SVN.
