  • Makarand Mane: Contributing WordPress translation into Marathi language

    Makarand Mane: Contributing WordPress translation into Marathi language

    WordCamp Pune 2017Speaker: Makarand Mane

    May 4, 2017 — In this session Makrand would help people understand, translating WordPress into Marathi is easy & simple.

    Anyone having knowledge of English and Marathi language can do it.

    WordPress Polyglot site is made for Localization of WordPress. Makrand would like to motivate people to contribute to it.

    WordPress is already available to use in the Marathi language. If more people’s starts contributing, more themes and plugins can be translated.

    There are more than hundreds of popular themes and plugins on WordPress repository. If at least they are translated into Marathi then many Marathi peoples can use WordPress easily in Marathi.

    On the occasion of Global Translation Day first, Makrand gathered many peoples to translate WordPress in Marathi. He found that some suggestions were getting rejected by General translation editor (GTE).

    Not every time, GTE can explain reasons for rejecting strings. But Makrand will guide new contributor and explain them ways to get in touch with Marathi GTEs. So better translations will be possible.

    Also, attendees will know benefits of contributing back to the community.

  • Caspar Hübinger: Big little shame – A story of empowered user experience through localization

    Caspar Hübinger: Big little shame – A story of empowered user experience through localization

    WordCamp Torino 2017Speaker: Caspar Hübinger

    April 14, 2017 — About half a year ago I gave a talk at a WordCamp in my country.

    A big fat elephant had been sitting in the middle of the room since WordPress in had existed in our language, and at that WordCamp I pointed right at it.

    I demonstrated how terribly frustrating the presence of that elephant was for people who got to sit in its shadow.

    I also presented a plan to get the elephant out of the room in orderly fashion, and bring in unicorns instead.

    Many people cheered when I had finished the talk. A few said nothing. Nobody argued the beauty of unicorns.

    A couple of weeks later I went to Rosetta and proposed the localizing community should retire the elephant soon now.

    Then I introduced the unicorns.
    Hell broke loose.

    Some people argued unicorns didn’t exist (while looking right at them), and what I had presented was unethical.

    Others said the elephant had officially been approved to sit in the room, and as long as no official regulation existed to replace that statute, it would be beyond irresponsible to proceed removing an official animal from an official room, and besides, who believed in unicorns anyways.

    A couple of people started to cast rocks.
    Luckily, I had friends who helped me out.

    When the sun finally came out again, we picked up our courage and moved on.

    I kept looking after the unicorns.

    I read books and articles about elephants and unicorns, and how that elephant possibly had become so official. And how unicorns were becoming official as well—slowly, but steadily.

    —-

    There is a filthy big little shame sitting in WordPress’ localized user interfaces, in many languages with grammatical genders: Women are discriminated by default. This talk addresses the need to solve that dilemma—and examples how it possibly can be solved.
