Polyglots Handbook Reorganization Update

A big update on the Polyglots Handbook reorganization project!

Yesterday, @lidialab and I reordered the pages, according to the outline we shared. In other words, the Polyglots Handbook officially has a new look 🙂

At this point in our progress, there are seven remaining (small) tasks for the work to be considered 100% complete.

  • We have three pages that are in progress and already have volunteers working on them.
  • Two pages that have been rewritten, and need a volunteer to review them.
  • Two pages that need a volunteer to review them for accuracy and to check if any information is out-of-date.

If you’re interested in helping with these final tasks, please sign up via the sign-up sheet or pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” myself or @lidialab with questions.

We’ve come a very long way on this project that we started just a few months ago. A big thank you and congratulations goes to the team that made this happen: @lidialab, @nao, @casiepa, @devinmaeztri, @psmits1567, @yordansoares, @nobnob, and @arpitgshah.

As a reminder, the main focus of this project was: 1) to make sure all the pages in our Handbook are updated, and 2) to revise the workflow of the Handbook to help onboard new contributors (translators, PTEs/GTEs, global mentors, and PluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website.
