Polyglots at the first WordCamp Riga contributor day

Hey lovelies,

I thought I’d give a quick recap of the first WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more.

It was a pleasure meeting @orvils, one of the Latvian GTEs, in person as well as many other new translation contributors who worked on 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 translations to Latvian, but also German 🙂

Thank you, everyone, who participated. Here are a few things we did (besides teaching everyone how to translate and translating) and a few that remain on my ToDo list to follow up on:

  • We created a Latvian Team O2 🎉 https://lv.wordpress.org/team/
  • We got the new contributors to join the WordPress SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. team (thanks @ocean90 with your help there, Slack was not keen to send many invites today)
  • We planned adding the Latvian glossary to the Handbook page (attention @mte90, you might want to add it to GlotDict)
  • We planned to add the Latvian Slack team to the Local Slacks handbook page once they change their name and url from WordCampRiga to WordPressLatvia (attn @kristianastala)
  • We talked about the Latvian team potentially organising a meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. for WP Translation Day

Apart from the Riga related tasks, a few more things I managed to do today:

  • Added a handbook page on adding a new site forum for a locale  (props to @ocean90 for helping me figure out the proper process)
  • Added a handbook page on adding a new Team O2 for a locale
  • Started on a Press ReleaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software. for Global WordPress Translation Day 2
  • Started off the marketing campaign for GWTD (got in touch with media, sent the announcement to the community team)
  • Added all the events currently planned for GWTD to the Local events map.

I personally didn’t expect to see a great Polyglots turnup there, since it’s an English-speaking country. You can imagine my surprise when we ended up with a team almost as big as CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.’s team!

Let me show you…

Working on German translations (#de_DE), we had @kau-boy, @soean, @travel_girl and @00Sleepy.

Spreading the love for Afrikaans (#af_ZA) was @semblance_er. @gomp was helping the Polish-speaking community (#pl_PL), while @katjazalokar took care of Slovenian (#sl_SL). We can add more languages to the list, because @shakoof was working on hebrew (#he_IL), and @awesomesaurus and @andizer took care of Dutch (#nl_NL).

This contributor day also reminded me that I still do not know all existing languages, because we had @kel-dc translating the releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application.

Unfortunately I forgot to mention here at the closing of the contributor day, so hereby my apologies for that and a special thanks to @kel-dc for all the hard work!

Of course, I hope you’ll all continue to translate WordPress, and I really hope to see you on the WP Translation Day!

Thanks all for an amazing contributor day!
