“WordPress Translation Day 2021” event is between September 1-30
Global events updates
Some ideas suggested for global event topics (in English) so far are here in this spreadsheet.
For the next steps, the team is looking to:
- Outreach to locales 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/ and one-on-one outreach to see who may be interested in talking about these topics.
- Decide on the total number of events, as September 17-30 gives us 14 days total.
If you or anyone in your locale 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/ may be interested in these topics, please share or let us know!

Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. organizer post soon so we can have it up at least a few weeks before September.
