Last Saturday, we spent an afternoon at Temple University Azabu Campus translating some themes, plugins and more.

Several new contributors joined us, thanks to Temple professors @shinyab @ymatsuhashi who shared the event with their students who are using WordPress.

What We Worked On

We had a very productive day translating various projects. A couple of Temple students who are native Chinese speakers worked on #zh-tw themes. They are linked in the list below. It would be great if Chinese (Taiwan) GTEs could review them.

We also had some discussion on how to translate eCommerce terms (for WooCommerce and others), and Gutenberg’s accessibility feature.

  • Disqus Comment System

@mayukojpn and I also reviewed various projects. She did a great job onboarding new contributors as well.

Special thanks to Temple U for letting us use the facility! And @show-ko for coming to help watch my son 🙂 Here are some more photos from @sysbird and myself.
