Show localized READEME at wp.org/extend/plugins/

  1. IKEDA Yuriko


    Currently, official WordPress plugin repository (this site) allows one language. Most developer uses English to write documents. But, non-natives of English are hard to read many English documents.

    I suggest that the repository recognize and show READMEs of another language if filename of the documents are like below:

    * README.txt for English
    * README.ja.txt for Japanese
    * README.zh-CN.txt for Simplified Chinese
    * README.fr.txt for French.

    Most web browsers has an ability to send the acceptable language.
    Most webserver can understand the browser's language selection, and send a document of desirable language.
    I think this repository should use this feature of browsers and servers.

    Also, theme directory has the same situation.
