Do you want to be part of the WordPress story?

One of the great goals of the WordPress community for this year 2015 has been the internationalization the translation of all the ecosystem, and for this they are collaborating many users who, in addition to enjoying all that WordPress offers us, also want to contribute their bit to this wonderful CMS even way of life for many.

Apart from the official translations of the WordPress software and the official website which has been permanently and consistently maintained for years, during this year other related projects have begun to be translated, such as WordPress pages. org of the plugins and themes directories, or the WordCamp Central sites and the local websites.

Also, there are equipment of collaborators translating each of the mobile applications and other parts of the WordPress world.

The last big decision has been upload to the translation system (GlotPress) all the themes and plugins of the official directories so that the same community of users can / can return the developers the favor of having placed their creatures in our hands.

Especially with the plugins, they will all be uploaded and made available for translation although they already have their own translation at least in this initial load.

Later, if the developer prefers to keep his own translation, he will only have to include it in the package before sending it. If you do not offer translation files, they will be available to the community to translate them, of course as long as they are ready to translate .

What does this imply?

Well, two fundamental things:

  1. The experience of using WordPress and its websites will be friendlier for all users who do not speak English. It was even shocking for many users to have all the administration and themes by default in Spanish and to access to add themes or plugins that the page and the description of each topic or plugin were in English.
  2. A huge workload is looming for the current translation teams . Until now, a small group of collaborators had to translate the official themes of each version, the complete administration area, the network administration, the plugins included in each version, the applications for iOS and Android, and the packages additional, called Meta, as the theme for official websites by country, the central WordCamp site, and some other things. But now the task is huge, they are there, waiting, all issues (at least 1,440 ready to translate) and plugins (almost 40,000) of the respective official directories. And, of course, there is also all the WordPress documentation of Codex .

Needless to say, we all owe unconditional love to the volunteers who, altruistically, use part of their time constantly to offer us WordPress and , in particular, that is in Spanish.

But they have / we have to be more, many more, and with the help of all we will soon have and offer WordPress entirely in Spanish .
