Updates for translate.wordpress.org

As announced last week, GlotPress 3.0 is finally coming. On translate.wordpress.orgtranslate.wordpress.org The platform for contributing to the translation of WordPress core, themes and plugins. we already had a pre-version of 3.0 running but today it was updated to the release candidateRelease Candidate A beta version of software with the potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge. of GlotPressGlotPress GlotPress is the translation management software that powers Translate.WordPress.org. More information is available at glotpress.org. 3.0. There are a few changes I’d like to highlight:

Updated layout and design

GlotPress now provides an improved default set of styles for typography, tables, buttons, form elements, and links. This allowed us to remove some custom styles we had, making it easier to maintain the platform in the future. The colors are mostly the same as before though, matching the overall design on wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/.

I took this opportunity to slightly increase the default width of the content wrapper to improve readability and also extensibility for upcoming changes.

Simplified status filters

Previously you could only select from a pre-defined list of combined status filters. Now you can select any combination you want.

Each status can be selected.

The case-sensitive option is now close to the search term input. There’s now also a sort option for modified date of translation.

Glossary updates

  • You can now select ‘abbreviation’ as a part of speech value.
  • Stricter validation of new entries to ensure term have the correct format when importing.
  • Terms with multiple words are now matched again in translations. Props @pedromendonca!
  • Adding identical terms for different parts of speech is now possible again too.
