Cross Locale Project Translation EditorsTranslation Editor Translation editors can approve translations for projects. The GTE (General Translation Editor) and LM (Locale Manager) roles can add new users with the "Project Translation Editor" role that can approve translations for specific projects. There are two different Translation Editor roles, see: General Translation Editor Project Translation Editor

We’re officially starting the Cross Locale Project Translation Editors program and trial period.

Criteria for a Cross-Locale Project Translation EditorCross-locale Project Translation Editor A Cross-Locale Project Translation Editor is an account owned by a plugin or theme author (or the authoring organization), which uses professional translators to localize their product. The cross-locale project translation editor can import/validate strings on a specific project for more than one locale. This role has the same capabilities as a Project Translation Editor over multiple locales instead of one. Cross-Locale Project Translation Editors need to meet a set of criteria before being appointed by General Translation Editors.

To be granted access to import/validate stringsString A string is a translatable part of the software. A translation consists of a multitude of localized strings. for more than one locale, an organisation/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/theme author must cover the following criteria:

  1. Make sure that the translators they hire use the community style guides and glossaries, or create ones based on them and provide public links.
  2. Create a new account for this role rather than using a personal one, and fill in the profile page with contact information so that the local translation team can get a hold of them.
  3. Disclose the sources of translation (e.g. translation vendor) and reviewers (.org username) on the description of the new WordPress.org account
  4. List steps for other .org community volunteers to get involved in the review process
  5. Have a 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/. account on chat.wordpress.org and provide notice to the General Translation Editors of each locale after imports.
  6. Update their WordPress.org name with a (CL PTE)

Handbook updates related to the Cross Locale PTE:

Other questions related to Cross Locale PTEs:

  • Who can create Cross Locale PTEs: @Petya and @Ocean90
  • How does importing work and what are the special CL PTE’s functions
    • Specific user accounts (cross-locale PTEs) are able to import and approve translations for specific projects for all localesLocale Locale = language version, often a combination of a language code and a region code, for instance es_MX denotes Spanish as it’s used in Mexico. A list of all locales supported by WordPress in https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/.
    • A cross-locale PTE can import (or translate through UIUI 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.) untranslated strings as current.
    • A cross-locale PTE can import (or translate through UI) translated (by the community) strings as waiting.
    • Translations by a cross-locale PTE can be overwritten by a regular PTE or a GTE.
    • Imported strings by CL PTE do not overwrite strings translated by a GTE or PTE
  • How will the trials be evaluated – GTEs can provide feedback on regular basis.

More updates from the summit & contributor dayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. are on their way, some notes are in the meeting notes from last week: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/2017/06/26/notes-from-the-polyglots-chats-on-june-21/

PTEonboarding documents

In the last week’s chat, Birgit brought up a great point about how hard it is for new PTEs and theme/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 developers to understand the whole translator approval process.

She drafted two docs as “skeletons”:

For developers:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/18XBAYmRbAyWGb8RiIjPxDQeuY-DVwg1XAYmuNU2kpVg/edit?usp=sharing

For translators:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fSoXhOeLwxx0qJtEXOKGLICYHeLrz85FTxg9wX-cMQY/edit

Several people (@Nao @tobifjellner @zetaraffix) have made comments in the second document, so that one will be used for the continued work, going forward.

@coachbirgit will soon finalize the first version of this document. It will be one document with some special notes for developers. This is meant to function as a skeleton. Each locale is free to adjust it to their needs and translate, if they want.

Even if a locale decides to use this document in English, there are certain things they may want to add themselves, like: chat resources, people you may contact, language resources, locale style guide…

@nao suggested that it might be useful for developers if it would be possible to create one document in English, which would describe the situation for most localesLocale Locale = language version, often a combination of a language code and a region code, for instance es_MX denotes Spanish as it’s used in Mexico. A list of all locales supported by WordPress in https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/ in one place.

@coachbirgit commented that some general documents would be good, both aimed at translator and at developers. In addition, this “skeleton” document may be used by locales when they describe their particular rules and processes. Currently, some limited information of this type is hidden deep inside the FAQ section of our handbook. ( https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/handbook/frequently-asked-questions/#how-do-some-locales-manage-pte-requests )

@nao suggested that a page aimed at developers might have the topic “How to get your plugin/themes translated” or similar, since not all people know about our internal terminology (PTE, GTE, etc.) Perhaps it could be good to even have some graphic explanation of the various roles we have defined.

A short discussion followed about the need for locale sites to have their own handbook pages. (Related ticket https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1919 ) Further discussion whether special handbook functionality would be needed may be done in that ticket.

@wolly pointed out that one may use certain styles to position a TOC in the left margin on a RosettaRosetta The code name of the theme for the local WordPress sites (eg. bg.wordpress.org is a “Rosetta” site). All locale specific WordPress sites are referred to as “Rosetta sites.” The name was inspired from the ancient Rosetta Stone, which contained more or less the same text in three different languages. page and gave an example:

<div class=”col-2 sidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme.” style=”margin-left: 0;”>
<ul class=”submenu”>
<li class=”subcurrent”>Come iniziare</li>
<li><a href=”https://it.wordpress.org/traduzioni/#reg_stil”>Registro e tono</a></li>
<li><a href=”https://it.wordpress.org/traduzioni/#reg_gram”>Regole grammaticali</a></li>
<li><a href=”https://it.wordpress.org/traduzioni/#terms”>Un po’ di terminologia “Polyglots”</a></li>
<li><a href=”https://it.wordpress.org/pte-status-requests-by-devs-for-italian-localization-the-guidelines/”>PTE status requests by Devs for Italian localization: the guidelines.</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

Conclusion on the PTEonboarding discussion:

  • The PTEonboarding draft is in a good shape to get a transfer to polyglots/handbook
  • As long as the local sites don’t have a handbook functionality, we suggest a HTMLHTML HTML is an acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a markup language that is used in the development of web pages and websites. code snippet for TOCs on local sites pages
  • Local teams can decide if they want to translate the PTEonboarding skeleton into their language or only adjust it to their needs (links to 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/., resscourcen etc.)

Several people offered their support in creating visual elements for the PTEonboarding project. @semblance_er @zetaraffix and @sheilagomes @coachbirgit will contact these people separately to discuss what can be done.
