Let’s talk communication
– how to address plugin author and translation contributor requests on the P2
Suggested places to improve information about translating your plugin:
- A nice read by one of our active plugin authors:
Please include other links to pages in the ecosystem where adding information regarding plugin translations would be good. Improving documentation will help (see last week’s steps) but we should also try and be a bit more patient with demanding plugin authors.
Suggestions for the requests:
As @tacoverdo mentioned, the problem is expectation management. We obviously fail in setting the right expectations. @casiepa added that we are all human and volunteers, but indeed, expectations and ‘responsibilities’ need to be clearer.
@chantalc created a Doc, with the first draft about Polyglots expectations. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ON4DCjQP-le2GCeMgov2aO7exCljWZILHmKX0aTfcvg/edit#
- Create standard responses for plugin/theme authors demanding you translate their projects
- Create a workflow diagram for the request process
- Expand the handbook section ‘How to become a translation editor‘ to explain how and when translation contributors should contact GTEs, and how GTEs should handle PTE requests.
– the poll is already open (until January 31st) – let’s send it to our communities
- Send this poll to your local communities: http://petyaraykovska.polldaddy.com/s/polyglots-global-translation-sprint-day
