Polyglots Training Ready for Testing

The Polyglots Training course is now ready for testing! The Polyglots Training is a course hosted on Learn WordPress, designed to help new translators start contributing and experienced contributors learn more about community building, ways to give feedback, and working with WordPress translations.

The next step is to have polyglots go through the course to test it and provide feedback.

The Polyglots Training course is made up of five modules:

  1. How WordPress Translations Work
  2. Working with WordPress CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.
  3. Building a LocaleLocale Locale = language version, often a combination of a language code and a region code, for instance es_MX denotes Spanish as it’s used in Mexico. A list of all locales supported by WordPress in https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/ Glossary & Style Guide
  4. Collaboration and Team Building
  5. How to Give Good Feedback

To get feedback on the training, we are looking for volunteers who are willing to go through at least one of the modules. We will organize one to two Google Meet hangouts on each module to talk about the content and share any feedback, as if you were really taking the course. These hangouts will be scheduled over the course of ~five weeks, throughout August 2021.

It is not required, or expected, that you complete and join the discussions for all the modules. Even just one or two is really helpful. 

As a note: some styles on Learn WordPress are still being changed for this type of course. If you notice anything that looks unclear or buggy, that will be helpful feedback, too.

How to sign up

Anyone is welcome to test the course, and all experience levels are welcome. Getting your feedback is most helpful!
