Status of Translate.WordPress.com ??

  1. hi
    I'm asking about Translate.WordPress.com
    Firstly what happens in there?? people translate.. then?
    when do these translations gets implemented into the interface to actually appear?

    Second, Why not set-up available translations for WordPress.Org first then continue with extra WordPress.com interface translations instead of retranslating strings shared in both ?

    I guess these are general questions.. but if it would differ I'm talking about Arabic translation

    last comment is about right-to-left interfaces... many things gets messed up..
    for example in the "My Comments" the avatars are on top of the text hiding a part of it. the "Tag Surfer" too, the tag menu shows on top of the content instead the side of the page.

    thanks in advance
    keep on blogging ;)

  2. We volunteers cannot assist with this. Would you please address your questions on the translation project to Ryan http://wordpress.com/contact-support/

    Also note that wordpress.com multiuser software and wordpress.org free standing software are very different.

  3. thanks, I forwarded the questions there.

  4. timethief, thanks for responding to this question, probably best not to suggest directing support questions to any specific members of the team.

    hassanibraheem, you ask a lot of good questions, and I am working with the new owner of this area Nikolay to have better answers for you, because currently the updating is a little ad hoc.

    The phrases on WordPress.com is a large superset of WordPress.org .

    Yo! We're okay. The last I heard this was a project that Ryan was responsible for. Now I hear it's Nikolay's territory. The lingering question is, of course, who is Nikolay?

  6. That must have been quite a long time ago, because it some how fell on me to put my fingers in the cracks for some time.

    Not my place to talk up Nikolay. All I will say is a long time participant in WordPress and internationalization.

  7. Well, good on Nikolay!

    It is done manually.

    Second, Why not set-up available translations for WordPress.Org first then continue with extra WordPress.com interface translations instead of retranslating strings shared in both ?

    For some languages it had been done, but not for all. If you are translating the pot file directly you can handle this easily: just update your wordpress.org translated po file with the wp.com pot file and all the wp.org translations will come up.

    last comment is about right-to-left interfaces... many things gets messed up..

    Yes, it really doesn't look very well. We still haven't got RTL versions of all the admin stylesheets and I will ask you for some patience :-) Of course, if any suggestions are welcome.

    Happy translating,
    Nikolay.

  9. While you're here, are there any plans to localise individual themes on wordpress.com? We get the occasional query in here about why hard-coded English strings are showing up on people's blogs, and all we can really do is tell them to use a Classic-based theme instead.

  10. Yes, we will do that.

  11. Great, thank you.
