What is WPTranslationDay?
A 24-hour global event dedicated to the translation of the Open Source WordPress ecosystem (core, themes, plugins, documentation, marketing assets, etc) and all the related processes.
It’s a unique and innovative event: in a cool mix of digital and physical the international community of WordPress Polyglots will meet, locally and online, for a 24-hour translating marathon! There will be broadcasts of live talks and pre-recorded tutorials combined with physical interaction and mentoring during locally organized MeetUps.
The event will provide inspiration and training to both developers and translators on the localization (l10n) and internationalization (i18n) of all aspects of WordPress.
So, save the date: 11 May 2019, and remotely, or by joining a dedicated MeetUp, be part of the global wave and help us democratize publishing by offering WordPress in all the languages of the world!
Where is WPTranslationDay 4?
WPTranslationDay is… well, everywhere!
From 00:00 to 23:59 UTC on 11 May 2019, join thousands of volunteers locally – at dedicated MeetUps worldwide – or remotely, from your favorite place on Earth!
In a ‘global Polyglot chorus’ that will run from East to West as the timezones roll out, we will be translating all things WordPress, and broadcasting – right on this website – multilingual, technical and inspirational video content.
Online sessions will be offered in both English and local languages. The latter, scheduled at times best suited to the relevant local time zones.
Local and live-streamed content will provide information, training, inspiration, case studies, Q&A sessions, and much more, about the internationalization of the WordPress ecosystem. It will also show how localization extends the reach of the WordPress platform, making it inclusive and accessible.
So get ready, mark your calendar, follow the map of the upcoming local MeetUps… and if there are none near you… well, that’s a perfect excuse for organizing one! See you there!
