Current issues with GlotPress

  • No translation memory; no fuzzy matching; no roadmap for v1.0Should we continue to use it or switch to an external solution? (doesn’t need to be in PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.

    GlotPress could become a WP 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 Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party, instead of using BackPress (low priority)

    • need to fix caching counting;
    • need to fix usability issues related to the translation workflow (existing tickets)
    • confusing translation suggestions
    • hard to do bulk operations
    • etc.

    Proposed workflow:

    • submit translation
    • approve translation
    • proofread translation (and lock string)

    Other issues:

    • APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. borks when project doesn’t have any strings
    • Need to find a GlotPress maintainer
    • Should make a commit blitz to get more people interested (possibly at next international 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.)
    • Contacted ReGlot maintainer (GlotPress fork)
    • Don’t say CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. strings are frozen when they’re not; it’s fine to have only 2 days before release of truly frozen strings
