(updated on May 9, 2019) The WordPress Polyglots team is ready to host the fourth Global WordPress Translation Day 2019 on May 11, 2019, in every timezone around the globe. The event will be a celebration of the Make WordPress Polyglots Team. The team is an important part of WordPress as they help and inspire people around the globe with languages of various kinds to work on this wonderful platform.
WordPress Translation Day 2019 is a 24-hour global event dedicated to the translation of the WordPress ecosystem (core, themes, and plugins). The international community of the WordPress Polyglots will meet at the same time locally and digitally for a 24-hour translating marathon which will provide inspiration and training to both coders and translators on different topics around WordPress localizing and internationalizing through live streaming sessions and local meetups.
The previous (third) edition was held in the year 2017 with 71 local events in 29 countries. It ended with a huge success. There were more than 1300 people RSVP’d for local events and volunteers around the world translated 93,179 strings in core, themes, and plugins. More than 200 of them were new translators.
The sessions, offered in the local languages, will be providing information, training, inspiration, case studies, Q&A sessions and more on the WordPress ecosystem: a “global Polyglots chorus” that will run from East to West, as the time zones roll out.
Everyone who would like to learn how you can translate WordPress in your language, new and experienced translation editors, developers who would like to find translators for their projects, just everyone who would like to learn about translation process in WordPress and get a general idea of the work of the Polyglots team are welcome in Global WordPress Translation Day 2019.
