Reviewing Translations

All localized content on Learn WordPress should receive a translation review before it is published. Their reviewer should focus on these three areas:

  1. Is the language well-polished? (grammatically correct, no typos, etc.)
  2. Does the language follow the locale’s Glossaries and Style Guides?
  3. Does the translation follow the General Expectations for Translators?
