WCUS Contributor Day Leads Needed

Hey all, I hope this is the right way to do this again (It’s how we did it last year). I’m organizing the WordCamp US contributor day and I need someone, or better yet a couple people, who will be attending and able to lead the polyglots group during contributor day. Most of the responsibility is helping facilitate the group on the day of, but there is also some planning to do ahead of time.

I generally try to ask three things of the leads:
1) Please have a plan in place for onboarding new people to your team – whether that’s training them, getting them tools, just explaining what you actually do, etc.
2) Please have a plan in place for existing contributors to be productive, maybe a project/goal.
3) If either of those are completely fleshed out or particularly cool, let me know! The WCUS marketing, content, and social teams would love to talk about them 🙂

Contributor day is the last day of the conference (December 9th) in Nashville, TN

An update on WordPress 5.0 and the block editor

The previous announcement included a note that strings for the new block editor weren’t yet available in the WordPress projects.

This has been changed over the last few days and around ~600 editor strings are now fully translatable. As mentioned before, when possible, the strings from the Gutenberg project have been imported so you don’t have to start from the scratch.

This also means that the WordPress project is now the canonical source for the block editor aka. Gutenberg. Please focus on the WordPress project as there’s no sync for changes between both projects.

Language packs are now also rolling for the 5.0 beta which means you can test your translations (if at 100%) right in WordPress. You can download the latest 5.0 ZIP from https://wordpress.org/nightly-builds/wordpress-5.0-latest.zip. Select your language in the settings and let WordPress load the new language pack.

Thanks for all your awesome work and happy translating!

P.S.: You can read about the technical details in #45161-core, #45103-core, #45287-core, and #3875-meta.

WordPress 5.0, Gutenberg, and Twenty Nineteen

Today, the first beta of WordPress 5.0 was released. That means it’s time to start our processes to get the next major version of WordPress translated. Its release is planned for November, 19th, with string freezes on October, 30th and November, 12th.

Strings for WordPress 5.0 are now in the wp/dev projects:

WordPress 5.0 will also include the new block editor, code-named “Gutenberg”.

Gutenberg was previously translated in a plugin project. Now that the editor is part of core strings are also added to the wp/dev projects.
Do you have to translate them again? No. A script copies strings with status “current” from the plugin project to the WordPress projects if there’s no translation with status “current” yet. It’s run manually so don’t expect them to be immediately be copied.

Note: Due to missing parts in core and on meta side, the JavaScript strings are not yet translatable in the WordPress projects.

There’s also a new default theme developed, Twenty Nineteen.

Twenty Nineteen can be translated as well! You’ll find the strings in the Twenty Nineteen project on translate.wordpress.org.
The project has been pre-filled with translations from Twenty Seventeen.

Happy translating! 🎉
