Site language: 49,511% (+0,020%) of WordPress sites are running a translated WordPress site.

GWTD3 – Call for organizers

The organising spreadsheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Fecq1StAPn9nDgabGMLdXiqszWkkxP6-5cM5YHXwLPg/edit#gid=1361186426

Next steps:

  • Assemble an official team
  • Set goals for the event – discussed potential goals
    • Add more GTEs and PTEs
    • Inform plugin authors on how to get their contributors in as translation editors (we can do some research and experimenting on that beforehand and present a case study)
  • Set a date
  • Announce
  • Start organising – reaching out to local event organisers, create a strategy for the live streaming content, open call for speakers, set tasks, marketing, etc

WP 4.7.4 is out

Read the announcement post: https://wordpress.org/news/2017/04/wordpress-4-7-4/

No new strings added for translation.

Plugins layout change

Tabs are back. The translation part is now under the ‘Development’ tab (e.g. https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress/#developers)

Some tickets are still open about the translation part and @sergey will propose also some other changes

Open Discussion

  • Would be great to have a way for a PTE/GTE to monitor the work they have left to do. An issue has been opened here by @tobifjellner https://github.com/GlotPress/GlotPress-WP/issues/702 . @pixelverbieger added that it’s frustrating for a contributor to add proposals and then nothing happens in days/weeks/months because no PTE/GTE is notified.
  • “Hello Dolly” is marketed as “the sample plugin”. But it would be good to have a new sample plugin or adapt the current one, which would be correctly prepared for i18n and translation. – @petya to check how we can manage that
  • Some answers to common developer questions are added here by @casiepa http://wp-info.org/pa-qrg/ It could be a starting point for reaching out to developers.

Rosetta outreach – collaboration with the community team

The Rosetta outreach aims to get more local content on local sites. Read about it here if you’ve missed this before.

At WordCamp London contributor day Petya discussed with the community team the idea of WordCamp organisers getting author/editor access to the Rosetta site for their location so that they can post event announcements and developments there as well as on their wordcamp sites.

Next steps:

  • Petya to post about this on the Community team P2
  • The community team to include instructions about this in WordCamp organisers documentation
  • Both teams to come up with a process of easily adding organisers as editors to local sites

WCEU contributor day projects – brainstorming

  • Please add a comment to this post if you are attending Contributor day this year: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/2017/03/01/tldr-leave-a-comment-on/
  • Projects brainstorming – ideas
    • Polyglots Mentorship Program for new contributors
    • GlotPress improvements – research, ideas, etc
    • Rosetta site design and layout ideas to help highlight local content
    • Global WordPress Translation Day 3 – planning and assembling a team
    • Crowdfunding for GTEs
    • Growing the Polyglots leadership team

Global WordPress Translation Day 3 – call for organisers

  • Volunteers who would like to get involved with a potential next edition of WordPress Translation Day in 2017 can step forward.
  • Petya will post Call for organisers on the P2
  • International Translation Day is on September 30th (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Translation_Day) it might be good day to fix for an annual translation day

WordPress Community summit Polyglots representatives

  • Final selection of people to be invited to the summit has been made (Read https://make.wordpress.org/summit/2017/03/26/wordpress-community-summit-2017-announcement/ for details)
  • Polyglots team representatives who have been selected will receive a message from @petya by the end of this week

Plugins have switched to the new layout

  • A link to translation is now under the ‘Read more’ of the last paragraph ‘Contributors & Developers’ and is called ‘Translation Contributors’.
  • Being on the standard wordpress.org/plugins page, a link is displayed to localized version of the plugin if they exist directly under the header. e.g. ‘Deze plugin is ook beschikbaar in Nederlands (ook: Italiano, Français).’
  • Proposed changes to the current layout should be suggested on the meta trac.

Community summit topic and representatives

This is our last week to decide and post our topics/people, topics and people should be posted on the Community P2 by March 3rd.

Everyone who would like to represent the team should comment on this post by 8pm EST on March 2nd.

WCEU contributor day

WCEU contributor day gathers more Polyglots on the ground than any other WordPress event. Besides onboarding new contributors, that gives the experienced Polyglots among us an opportunity to get together and discuss important issues as well as break out in sessions and work on global projects. Let’s see who’s going and decide what to discuss and work on.

@tacoverdo has done a post about it on make/polyglots. Please comment on that post if you’re attending WCEU and plan on going to WCEU contributor day: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/2017/03/01/tldr-leave-a-comment-on/

Global glossaries are in – time for testing and feedback

Locale glossaries are in and up for testing. Read @ocean90‘s post here: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/2017/03/01/locale-glossaries-on-translate-wordpress-org/

Thanks to @Nao the handbook page on Glossaries has been updated with the information about how to build and use a Locale Glossary

 

That’s all for this week!

Cheers,

Petya

  • Armenian (#hy), Persian (#fa_IR) and Welsh (#cy) seem to still be at 4.7 . @luisrull will contact them to see if they need help with the release

Tech update

Outreach Campaign on Rosetta sites

  • @petya proposes a review of the Rosetta sites for the released/active locales and reaching out to communities in different countries on the possible use of Rosetta because some might not be aware that they are welcome to use their Rosetta sites to announce events and discuss local community topics. So to focus on working with the community team and make Rosetta sites more useful.
  • Volunteers are needed to help make this happen. The job is mostly talking to people here on Slack.
  • Actions would consist of:
    • Review all Rosetta sites and see who are not updated regularly
    • Check if there are meetups/WordCamps in the location the site is built for
    • Reach out to those organisers and ask them if they’d be ok with announcing the events on the Rosetta site as well
  • Communities that seem to be really using Rosetta already are Romania, Italy and Bulgaria
  • Contents that can go on Rosetta:
    • Translations of the release posts
    • Announcements for events
    • Local contributor updates starting with a page on how to join the translation team
  • @francina already wrote a first page in the handbook: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/handbook/rosetta/setting-up-your-local-site/rosetta-for-the-community/

Open Discussion

  • Some plugin authors from the top plugin list were contacted and informed how easy it was to get on translate.wordpress.org.
  • @juhise is looking for volunteers to help with #hi_IN translation
  • @petya would like to have a page on Rosetta displaying all local users and their roles. @tobifjellner was proposing to maybe also add an opt-out.
  • The Camptix for WordCamps plugin is since yesterday available on https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/camptix . Please review your language or assign a PTE where and if possible.

Action items

  • @petya : chat to the community team about making organisers aware of the Rosetta review
  • @luisrull : contact the 3 locales to see if they need help with releasing (@casiepa)
  • @casiepa : Propose spreadsheet for the Rosetta review
  • @casiepa : Check for volunteers and lead of the Rosetta review during next meeting (@casiepa)
  • @casiepa : Check for existing trac tickets about a Rosetta page displaying local users and roles

Notes from the Polyglots Chats on December 7

Locale Stats

Below stats are dated 2016-11-30 compared to 2016-12-07 (differences between brackets)

Releases: 164 (±0) locale, 47 (-27) up to date, 0 (±0) behind by minor versions, 27 (+22) behind by one major version, 21 (+5) behind more than one major version, 60 (±0) have site but never released, 9 (±0) have no site. Translations: 164 (±0) total, 53 (+26) at 100%, 6 (-8) over 95%, 4 (-9) over 90%, 37 (-9) over 50%, 57 (±0) below 50%, 84 (+1) have a language pack generated, 7 (±0) have no project.

Requests: There are 27 unresolved editor requests out of 520 (+10) total and 8 unresolved locale requests out of 35 (±0) total.

Translators: There are 482 (+6) GTE, 1 165 (+8) PTE and 11 781 (+165) translation contributors. (A wordpress.org account could have multiple roles over different locale)

Site language: 51,824% (-0,067%) of the WordPress sites are running in en_US (English (US)).

Manual releases

If your locale is translated at more than 95% you might want to do a manual release and finish the translations later. That’s valid especially if you are currently behind one or more major versions, which disables the download button on your Rosetta site.

To release manually, please follow these instructions:

Releasing WordPress Packages

If you require assistance, ping @petya or @ocean90 here on in #Polyglots on Slack.

Release Video Subtitle

  • How to subtitle the video
  • 42 subtitles uploaded, 2 currently not working (zh-cn and zh-tw: both are in process of being fixed), 1 incomplete (Telugu) (via @casiepa)

Post-release To-do’s

  • Translate the release post and publish it on your Rosetta site.
  • Important: When you translate the release post, please do not include the names of all the contributors to it, instead, link to the original post for the full list of contributors. Including the names of all contributors pings them every time on WP Slack as they get a mention. Linking to the original post is a good alternative.
  • A good idea is to include a list of your translators to the release post in your language, especially if the translation team completed the translations before the release. Example: https://goo.gl/HT36XN
  • WordPress installation requirements are updated. Let’s make sure the Rosetta & documentation site are current
  • Translate or read the master list for 4.7 on English forums

WP for iOS 6.8

And finally, thank you so much to everyone who stepped up and translated WordPress in the 4.7 release cycle. You did an amazing job with a very short notice with both the About page strings and the release video.

Keep up with the amazing work you’re doing.

Locale stats

Below stats are dated 2016-11-23 compared to 2016-11-16 (differences between brackets)

Releases: 164 (±0) locale, 73 (±0) up to date, 0 (±0) behind by minor versions, 5 (±0) behind by one major version, 17 (±0) behind more than one major version, 61 (±0) have site but never released, 8 (±0) have no site.
Translations: 164 (±0) total, 0 (-3) at 100%, 31 (+7) over 95%, 18 (-3) over 90%, 52 (-1) over 50%, 56 (±0) below 50%, 82 (±0) have a language pack generated, 7 (±0) have no project.
=> New strings arrived just before the weekly stats, so 100% is at 0.

Translators: There are 476 (+1) GTE, 1 149 (+17) PTE and 12 469 (+167) translation contributors.
(A wordpress.org account could have multiple roles over different locale)

Site language: 51,969% (-0,061%) of the WordPress sites are running in en_US (English (US)).

Tech update

  • No specific updates. Waiting for soft freeze.
  • Strings like ‘resource’ have changed to more appropriate terms.
  • Release deadline of 6-Dec seems to be maintained.

Open Discussion

  • ‘Older’ WordPress releases (like 4.1.x, 4.2.x) will remain on GlotPress, but the most important ones are of course Developement and current 4.6.x. Newer locales don’t have to spend time in translating the old ones.
  • Having a team with different competences brings in the correct balance for translating

Takeaways and decisions about the next GWTD

  • Assemble a team with clear responsibilities before starting to organise – organise it like a wordcamp
  • Help local events connect to the GTEs for the locales they’re going to translate
  • Have it once a year
  • Do trial runs with all speakers to avoid technical issues
  • Research Google Live and Hangouts on air as an alternative to CrowdCast to avoid people needing to register to watch the stream

A full recap with takeaways and more stats is coming later today/tomorrow to make/polyglots

WordPress 4.7 development cycle

  • The original WordPress 4.7 development cycle has been changed
  • Soft freeze planned for November 17th
  • Hard freeze planned for November 29th
  • The about page strings ticket on track is live so we should watch it and take part if needed
  • No news on the release video yet, Petya to check with Helen
  • All GTEs will get a ping to prepare their locales on the dates of the soft freeze and hard freeze

iOS App translations
