Hi polyglots!

I would like to request commit access to the i18n SVN for /lv/ subfolder. My username is orvils

I am the validator for the Latvian language and I need to remove WPLANG from wp-config-sample.php so I can build the new version.

I am new to WordPress so if I am missing something, please point me to the right direction

Hello In case you haven’t noticed WordPress org…

Hello,
In case you haven’t noticed, WordPress.org profile redesign is up. People can now get badges for their contributions. Here is an example for polyglots https://profiles.wordpress.org/vanillalounge/.
@vanillalounge I assume that you have access to the list of people currently contributing in make/polyglots. Could you please send it to someone in meta (probably Ian Dunn), so that we can get those shiny new badges? 😀 Thanks

@nacin Could you please add the ‘en AU’…

@nacin Could you please add the ‘en_AU’ translations for bbPress (/2.4.x branch) & BuddyPress ( /dev branch as there is no /1.8.x branch) .po & .mo files to i18n, similar to https://i18n.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/22193/

WordPress translationion teams

Hi guys,
All of us here belong to the WordPress translating community and many know how frustrating the translating process is. WordPress has more than 3,300 strings (+500 for MultiSite), it’s just too much.

I think that the translators community has to be more involved in the development process to reduce the strings ammount and improve it’s quality. WordPress trac already have a few interesting ideas like:

  • Consolidate string with same meaning but different wording (https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/14039)
  • Merge similar string (https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/18218)
  • Replace/Remove html code entities (https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7098#comment:10)

I would like to hear more ideas, based on your experience, how do you think we can improve the translating process and/or reduce the strings ammount? (you can add your trac tickets)
