    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.
