WordPress Polyglots

Posted February 14, 2005 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Community.

One of the most interesting things for me as a uni-lingual developer has been the incredible international community that has formed around WordPress, creating localizations, translations, and incredible resource sites around the project. When I last checked the translations available for 1.2, there were 26 different languages available. This is something we want to embrace and make even better with 1.5.

The definition of a “polyglot” is “a person having a speaking, reading, or writing knowledge of several languages,” so we thought it would make the perfect name for the new mailing list to coordinate the internationalization and localization of WordPress. If you are fluent in English and at least one other language, please join the discussion on making WordPress available to the widest audience possible. We’ll be talking about the new collaborative translation enviroments available, making pre-localized versions of WordPress available for download, and even translating WordPress.org itself.

While I’m here thanks Craig Hartel for the great Valentine’s day logo we have up. It’s so nice we might leave it there all week. Never hurts to spread the love, right?
