2017 year in review – share your local experience

2017 year in review – share your local experience

Dear polyglots,

We’re getting closer to the end of yet another year and thousands of new translations are rolling for WordPress, plugins, and themes every day. We’re finishing another successful year and stats are coming soon. But before we publish the end of year stats, it would be wonderful to hear how the year went for your local translation teams.

Could you post a comment here sharing:

  1. What went well this year for your team? What were your local successes?
  2. What didn’t go so well? What are you currently struggling with?
  3. Is there anything you’re missing in your translation work, something that’s high on your wishlist that you’d like the leadership team to concentrate on in the next year?

Thank you in advance!

WordPress 4.9 should be released today – prepare your locales

WordPress 4.9 should be released today – prepare your locales

Dear Polyglots,

The last strings for 4.9 have been frozen since November 9th and WordPress 4.9 is about to be released.

That means there are two things for all GTEs to do now:

1. Translate the 4.9 project, Admin and Network admin

It’s time to head to translate.wordpress.org and finish translating the last batch of new strings.

Please don’t forget that in order to qualify for an automatic release, you need to have all strings in the following projects translated 100%:

2. Prepare the SVN directory for your locale for automated packages

Handbook page for reference: Automated release packages

Does my locale qualify for automated release?

  • If all you have is a license, readme, and wp-config-sample.php (or no custom changes at all), everything will be automated for you if you follow the instructions above. Both language packs and release packages will automatically be created. If you are not at 100% at that time, then language packs and release packages will be created when you reach 100%. If you later modify a translation (to fix a typo, for example), your language pack and release package will be regenerated.
  • If you have extensive custom changes, you will need to manually create a package via Rosetta as you have done in the past.

On Slack, watch out for messages like this one:

translation-bot

Your locale is good to go if you see your locale in the “x release packages for y were built” message.


This is also a global ping for GTEs for locales that are currently at more than 50% and less than 100%.

26 locales are already at 100% – thank you!

Dev between 95% and 100% (15)

Dev between 90% and 95% (14)

Dev between 50% and 90% (51)

The release is due today and this is a very short notice, a last minute string was added yesterday as well so thank you in advance to everyone who makes time to get their locale to 100%. For those who don’t the next couple of weeks are a great time to get this done as well so no stress and happy translating!

PTE request for Yoast plugins

Hello Polyglots,

I am working at Yoast, the company behind the plugins listed below. We have a number of great translation editors that we’d like to be able to approve translation for our plugins. They all have been validating the translations of our free and premium plugins on https://translate.yoast.com for years, so all of them are experienced. If you need proof, please feel free to ping me on Slack (@TacoVerdo).
