Polyglots at the first WordCamp Riga contributor day

Hey lovelies,

I thought I’d give a quick recap of the first WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Riga 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/. and what it meant for the Polyglots teamPolyglots Team Polyglots Team is a group of multilingual translators who work on translating plugins, themes, documentation, and front-facing marketing copy. https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/..

It was a pleasure meeting @orvils, one of the Latvian GTEs, in person as well as many other new translation contributors who worked on 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 translations to Latvian, but also German 🙂

Thank you, everyone, who participated. Here are a few things we did (besides teaching everyone how to translate and translating) and a few that remain on my ToDo list to follow up on:

  • We created a Latvian Team O2 🎉 https://lv.wordpress.org/team/
  • We got the new contributors to join the WordPress 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/. team (thanks @ocean90 with your help there, Slack was not keen to send many invites today)
  • We planned adding the Latvian glossary to the Handbook page (attention @mte90, you might want to add it to GlotDict)
  • We planned to add the Latvian Slack team to the Local Slacks handbook page once they change their name and url from WordCampRiga to WordPressLatvia (attn @kristianastala)
  • We talked about the Latvian team potentially organising a meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. for WP Translation Day

Apart from the Riga related tasks, a few more things I managed to do today:
