Performing outreach to bring new contributors into the Training Team
Onboarding contributors to the Training Team’s processes
Providing language support
Creating localized content
Identifying and communicating key content for translation or creation based on community needs
Connecting their local community members with relevant Training Team opportunities (Ex. Content translation request)
Advertising Learn Content to their local community
Communicating their community’s needs to the Training Team
Locale Ambassadors have a strong record of being leaders in their communities. They have a deep understanding of their community’s needs when it comes to WordPress, and work as shepherds to help their respective communities grow.
This role is a one year commitment with the opportunity to renew. To ensure redundancy, each community should have two Locale Ambassadors sharing the responsibilities noted above.
Currently Locale Ambassadors have been identified in this spreadsheet for the Content Localization project, and a list not specific to this project will be provided as soon as commitments are confirmed.
