Proposal: Milestone Template for Polyglots Locale Teams
Objective: Create an easier-to-follow milestone template for localeLocaleLocale = 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/ managers/GTEs to effectively prioritize tasks & stay engaged and motivated 💪
Training new contributors and teams have been brought up a few times in the past year, most recently in the 2022 team planning post.
WordCampWordCampWordCamps 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. mentors once built a spreadsheet called “WordCamp Milestones/Level of Effort” for organizer team lead to use, which lists tasks broken down by teams and timeframes. This is now incorporated into the dashboard of every WordCamp website as a “Planning Checklist”.
Now, Polyglots teamPolyglots TeamPolyglots Team is a group of multilingual translators who work on translating plugins, themes, documentation, and front-facing marketing copy. https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/. contribution isn’t exactly like WordCamp planning, but a similar model could work for us.
Just an example – we could divide the effort into 4 phases (1. Key Translation, 2. Team Expansion, 3. Continuous Collaboration, and 4. Further Growth) with a list of priority tasks and goals for each phase.
This is NOT meant to be forcing any team to strictly follow one path, but rather a guiding checklist to understand the area to focus on for each timeframe.
(EDIT: Added a sample sheet for small teams below)
