I’m one of the Lead Developers of the BuddyPress plugin and in our next major version we are moving our very old BP Default theme into the BP Classic backwards compatibility plugin. To avoid losing the great work some of you did translating the BP Default theme stringsString A string is a translatable part of the software. A translation consists of a multitude of localized strings., I’ve exported `bp-themes/bp-default…` referenced strings from the BuddyPress “stable” languages and imported them making sure to replace all `bp-themes/bp-default` occurences by `themes/bp-default` into the BP Classic “stable” languages.

I did this importation process for the following languages: Czech, Danish, German, English (UK), Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Costa Rica), Persian, Finnish, French (France), Japanese, Dutch, Dutch (Belgium), Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian, Turkish.

BuddyPress next major version is slated for release on December 6, if other languages want to reproduce the export/import task I explain above, please make sure to do so before this date.

The BP Classic pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party will probably be used by many users as we’re introducing a major change in BuddyPress 12.0.0 and we’re not sure BP Plugin authors will update their code to be compatible with this change.

Thanks in advance for the ones who will help us migrate / validate the migrated strings into the BP Classic plugin.

Moreover & if possible, please add me (imath 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/) as a translation editorTranslation Editor Translation editors can approve translations for projects. The GTE (General Translation Editor) and LM (Locale Manager) roles can add new users with the "Project Translation Editor" role that can approve translations for specific projects. There are two different Translation Editor roles: General Translation Editor and Project Translation Editor for the fr_FR language of the BP Classic plugin & the BP Attachments plugin:
