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!

We’re in hard string freeze for 4.8.1 – Prepare your locales for the the release

Dear Polyglots,

The last strings for 4.8.1 have been imported to the development project and that means no strings will change anymore before Tuesday, August 1st, the expected release date for WordPress 4.8.1.

If your locale is not yet at 100%, it means there are still some things to do for you as GTE:

  1. Please check the WordPress 4.8.1 status and translate or approve the remaining strings. To qualify for an automatic release, you need to have all strings translated.
  2. (If needed) Prepare the SVN directory for your locale for automated packages.

If you have any questions, you can find us of course on Slack.


This is also a global ping for GTEs for locales that are currently at more than 50% and less than 100%.
Currently 22 locales at 100%, congratulations and thank you !

Dev between 95% and 100% (50)

PTE Request & Email Notification for Akismet/VaultPress/WooCommerce/Jetpack

This is Naoko from Automattic. We would like to ask these people to be added as PTEs of our three plugins.

Not to GTEs: If you didn’t find samples of translations by these folks, please look for translations imported by @akirk, @yoavf, or myself (@nao). We work with a team of translators & reviewers but some of the Team Global members take on the task of importing PO files in the end.

Email Notification for Current and New PTEs/GTEs

Would you like to opt into email notifications for Jetpack/WooCommerce/Akismet/VaultPress plugin translation? We are planning to send a summary once a week + before Plugin release, to make sure more translations get into the released package.

Here are sample email text: 1, 2

If you are interested, please send me your email address on a Slack (@nao) direct message. Thanks!

We’re in hard string freeze for 4.7 – Prepare your locales for the the release

Dear Polyglots,

The last strings for 4.7 (the about page strings) have been imported to the development project and that means no strings will change anymore before Tuesday, December 6th, the expected release date for WordPress 4.7.

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

1. Translate the 4.7 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%:

There is also a new default theme that comes with 4.7 – Twenty Seventeen which can also use some of your time.

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

Handbook page for reference: Automated release packages
