Polyglots team

WordCamp Europe

  • Videos start arriving at http://wordpress.tv/event/wordcamp-europe-2017/

Community Summit & Contributor Day outcome

  • Notes from all polyglots discussions are being finalized
  • New handbook pages will be created based on decisions taken during the summit
  • Cross-local PTE project will get live in the next couple of weeks
  • GWTD3 has a lead: @casiepa
  • @yoavf has worked on some amazing new features for translators on .com and we will be scheduling a meeting with him and @ocean90 to discuss what we can bring to .org

GWTD3

  • Finding leads for all areas is the next step
  • Then defining/confirming the date
  • No changes on the overall concept: 24h, spanning the whole world and talks

PTE onboarding

  • @coachbirgit opened the debate on how to handle PTE requests and add to the handbook
  • @nao @tobifjellner @wolly shared their documentation. Some existing docs: ja de it
  • @zetaraffix offered help for the design part. @sheilagomes already has some infographics. @tobifjellner proposed 2 entry points: 1. Aimed at developers 2. Aimed at users who want to contribute
  • A form on the dev side might be a good option/replacement for the current make/polyglots, but agreement with other teams are needed for that
  • proposal is to start with 2 simple docs: 1 for devs and 1 for PTEs/translators
  • Hashtag: PTEonboarding

GTE on slack

  • Not all GTE seem to be on slack
  • Proposal to add it into the onboarding of GTEs

GWTD3 – Call for organizers

The organising spreadsheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Fecq1StAPn9nDgabGMLdXiqszWkkxP6-5cM5YHXwLPg/edit#gid=1361186426

Next steps:

  • Assemble an official team
  • Set goals for the event – discussed potential goals
    • Add more GTEs and PTEs
    • Inform plugin authors on how to get their contributors in as translation editors (we can do some research and experimenting on that beforehand and present a case study)
  • Set a date
  • Announce
  • Start organising – reaching out to local event organisers, create a strategy for the live streaming content, open call for speakers, set tasks, marketing, etc

WP 4.7.4 is out

Read the announcement post: https://wordpress.org/news/2017/04/wordpress-4-7-4/

No new strings added for translation.

Plugins layout change

Tabs are back. The translation part is now under the ‘Development’ tab (e.g. https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress/#developers)

Some tickets are still open about the translation part and @sergey will propose also some other changes

Open Discussion

  • Would be great to have a way for a PTE/GTE to monitor the work they have left to do. An issue has been opened here by @tobifjellner https://github.com/GlotPress/GlotPress-WP/issues/702 . @pixelverbieger added that it’s frustrating for a contributor to add proposals and then nothing happens in days/weeks/months because no PTE/GTE is notified.
  • “Hello Dolly” is marketed as “the sample plugin”. But it would be good to have a new sample plugin or adapt the current one, which would be correctly prepared for i18n and translation. – @petya to check how we can manage that
  • Some answers to common developer questions are added here by @casiepa http://wp-info.org/pa-qrg/ It could be a starting point for reaching out to developers.

Rosetta outreach – collaboration with the community team

The Rosetta outreach aims to get more local content on local sites. Read about it here if you’ve missed this before.

At WordCamp London contributor day Petya discussed with the community team the idea of WordCamp organisers getting author/editor access to the Rosetta site for their location so that they can post event announcements and developments there as well as on their wordcamp sites.

Next steps:

  • Petya to post about this on the Community team P2
  • The community team to include instructions about this in WordCamp organisers documentation
  • Both teams to come up with a process of easily adding organisers as editors to local sites

WCEU contributor day projects – brainstorming

    • Growing the Polyglots leadership team

Global WordPress Translation Day 3 – call for organisers

  • Volunteers who would like to get involved with a potential next edition of WordPress Translation Day in 2017 can step forward.
  • Petya will post Call for organisers on the P2
  • International Translation Day is on September 30th (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Translation_Day) it might be good day to fix for an annual translation day

WordPress Community summit Polyglots representatives

  • Final selection of people to be invited to the summit has been made (Read https://make.wordpress.org/summit/2017/03/26/wordpress-community-summit-2017-announcement/ for details)
  • Polyglots team representatives who have been selected will receive a message from @petya by the end of this week

Plugins have switched to the new layout

  • A link to translation is now under the ‘Read more’ of the last paragraph ‘Contributors & Developers’ and is called ‘Translation Contributors’.
  • Being on the standard wordpress.org/plugins page, a link is displayed to localized version of the plugin if they exist directly under the header. e.g. ‘Deze plugin is ook beschikbaar in Nederlands (ook: Italiano, Français).’
  • Proposed changes to the current layout should be suggested on the meta trac.
