Status of the Handbook FAQ page

Pascal Casier (@casiepa) has added two more topics to the handbook, which had been published previously. Everybody is invited to contribute.

Francesca Marano (@francina) suggests linking the videos of the Global WordPress Translation Day to the handbook as the videos are a great source for users who want to start contributing to translations. It would be helpful to link the video “How to prepare your pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party for translation” in the handbook. Any video that gives clear instructions on doing something should have maximum visibility. (Francesca has more ideas about sharing knowledge via the handbook, which she would like to discuss during WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Europe.)

The GTE (General Translation Editor) and LM (Locale Manager) roles can add new users with the "Project Translation Editor" role that can approve translations for specific projects. There are two different Translation Editor roles: General Translation Editor and Project Translation Editor of the Persian locale. Petya Raykovska (@petya) already contacted Mani Monajjemi (@mani_monaj) but (being organizer of WordCamp Europe) hasn’t been available for this topic lately. The team mentors are aware of the situation and will take care.
