Recent i18N Improvements in WordPress Core

Caching, timezones and i18n are just a few things that make developers cringe. In this short talk I will highlight some recent enhancement in the field of i18n in WordPress to show how we’ve got you covered. I will also give a glimpse at what’s coming in the future (JS i18n, Preferred Languages, etc.).

Internationalisation Done Right

As developers, we try to follow best practices in our daily work. One such best practice is internationalisation, a term that's used a lot in the ever globalizing world in which we live. However, it's often not fully understood or not used to its full extent. In this presentation, I'm going to explain the concept behind internationalisation, localization, and their benefits. I will show how culture influences the user's behaviour and why we need to do more than just "making things translatable". For example, internationalisation is also about date formats, text direction, meaning of symbols, and even humour. Internationalisation has a massive impact on user acceptance and usability. I will highlight existing tools, interfaces, and best practices to get internationalisation right in the UIs we create and the code we write.
