> There was a chat last night in #meta-i18n about future infrastructure plans around themes and plugins in the repo The WordPress Localization Repository at https://i18n.svn.wordpress.org/ is a Subversion repository where official WordPress translations are maintained.

Following up since the #meta-i18n chat @isaackeyet has added some thoughts and mockups of the GlotPress GlotPress is the translation management software that powers Translate.WordPress.org. More information is available at glotpress.org. UI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing.
