Agenda for the Polyglots chat on November 15th

Dear polyglots,

We missed our slot for an Asia/Pacific chat this morning due to unavailability of anyone to lead it but we’ll have a chat at 11 UTC. Here’s a very short agenda for it, given we have one major priority today and that’s the release of 4.9 and having as many locales ready for it as we can.

  • Locale stats before the 4.9 release
  • WordPress 4.9 will be released today – prepare your locales
  • Open discussion

See you in #polyglots

Agenda Polyglots chats Aug 9, 2017

Here’s an agenda for the chats this week.

  • Weekly locale stats
  • There have been small changes to several of the core/meta projects lately. A convenient way to check if you need to catch up on a few strings for WordPress core, Browse Happy, Plugin and Theme directory, etc. is to visit https://translate.wordpress.org/stats
  • Remember to regularly check if you’ve got any pending editor requests. As always, you can find them here (replace YOUR_LOCALE with your locale slug): https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/tag/YOUR_LOCALE/?resolved=unresolved
    Also remember to enable notifications for mentions of your locale on https://profiles.wordpress.org/YOUR-ORG-USERNAME/profile/notifications/
  • Global WordPress Translation Day 3

Agenda weekly Polyglots chat Aug 2nd 2017

Hello polyglots,

Here’s an agenda for the chat today.

  • Weekly locale stats
  • Please respond to your editor requests: there are 36 open editor requests. You can find them here (replace YOUR_LOCALE): https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/tag/YOUR_LOCALE/?resolved=unresolved
  • String freeze for WordPress 4.8.1. The release should have happened yesterday, but was postponed by one day. Many locales are already at 100% on the dev project, but quite a few still need to catch up. There are only some 10 strings new, so if you released 4.8, then this is a relatively quick task. Make sure that your locale is at 100%!
  • Global WordPress Translation Day 3: Call for speakers is open! Time to start planing your local translation event! Welcome to take part in the preparation work and planning. The next meeting for organizers will take place between the first and the second Polyglots weekly meeting Wednesday, August 2, 2017, 11:00 AM GMT+2 on #polyglots-events
  • Open discussion

    Site language: 49,745% (+0,063%) of WordPress sites are running a translated WordPress site. Upcoming Release

    Translating WordPress 4.8

    • 4.8 RC1 is out, final release is targeted to be on June 8 (#)
    • The About page wording may change (#)
    • String freeze schedule: June 1
    • No news on video/subtitles yet.

    Finalizing WCEU Contributor Day Topics

    • 120 people will contribute to Polyglots of which 23 completely new, 48 contributed and 46 (very) experienced.
    • “New General Translation Editors onboarding / Mentorship program and new translation contributors onboarding plan” – Similar to the Community Team, how about putting together something like their training program? Or at least, a checklist or some sort. More structured way to get people started. (@nao)
      • @tobifjellner said sv_SE team is working on a local version of onboarding doc. Would be good to collect existing materials from teams and share good & bad practices (style, glossary and work procedure).
    • Contributor onboarding
      • @fxbenard points out that contributors mostly come to translate something they use, and then disappear
      • How to ‘review’ a contributors work in a quicker way (it’s very frustrating if work has been done but it takes ages before it gets approved)
      • Proposed goal: Prepare a written strategy for effectively onboarding new contributors (e.g. list of attention points and draft list of actions, to be detailed more after WCEU ?)
    • PTE Onboarding
      • Proposed goal: Clarify the role of the PTE for new contributors and sign up as many new PTEs as we can
    • Translating
      • Proposed goal: Complete at least 1 plugin/theme/project for each locale that has contributors present during Cday
    • GTE – Compare experiences
      • @lasacco would  love to know from the other GTEs which are the things going well or failed in their locale
      • Proposed goal: Compare GTE experiences and come with a list of Do/Don’t items. Adding the ‘How did I solve this’ where possible.
    • @luisrull and @arnaudbroes would love to talk about strategies to improved polyglots communities engagement and efficiency, plus helping new people
    • Inform contributors what to do after adding suggestions
      • @tobifjellner: there needs to be information flowing about where to look.
      • @pedromendonca: The biggest income a new contributor can have is the help of another humans. Know how and where to put questions, discuss doubts,…
      • Information could be links to polyglots handbook, to page(s) on localized Rosetta sites, to the list of local slacks, etc.
      • What to do if there is no PTE, or how can the contributor somewhere link to the existing PTE?
      • Proposed goal: Create a list of items where information/pointers should be improved and what information should be given.
    • Statistics/chat/notification inside the translate.wordpress.org platform site
      • @vitormadeira indicates that would be a (somehow) easy feature to start motivating people who contribute for one project and just leave…
      • No comparison / top tables , but related to ‘self-details’: how many strings one have already contributed, How many strings of “my” strings were approved, How many of “my” strings have been rejected, what projects did one work on, …
      • @sheilagomes and @vitormadeira pointed out that other ways could be explored to ‘lock’ translations or have the possibility to communicate (chat?)
      • Also if a GTE is maintaining a plugin, it looks like there is no PTE for it
      • Proposed goal: Creat a list of how the community sees possible improvements to GlotPress
    • Waiting strings
      • @lasacco indicates that they have a problem in managing the many waiting strings
      • @pedromendonca indicates that this could be because of a too low number of PTE and/or low or unclear communication
      • Some locales have global PTE and the GTE that deal with them. Other locales wait for a ping or until a PTE is appointed
      • Proposed goal: Create a list of approaches to reduce the list of waiting strings
    • @pedromendonca thinks also on how to improve consistency in some of the most widely used plugins.

    Open Topics

    • i18n of default plugin (#): Readme is fully translatable as of now, but there is no further plan for i18n right now. Akismet can be used as a sample if needed.

    Dear Polyglots,

    I have my hands full with WordCamp Europe for the next two weeks. Dominik is busy with core and also coming to Seville next week.

    We don’t have an agenda for today’s chat, but will be in Slack from 10:00 UTC for an hour, as per usual, to answer questions if you want to bring any to the table.

    If anyone would like to host next week’s chat and collect notes, we would highly appreciate the help. Just ping us on Slack or raise your hand here.

    Cheers!
    Petya
