A call for validators

  • Author

    As you know, WordPress.com is translated using the GlotPress platform. In order to keep spam out of the translations, and also to keep them correct and coherent, all strings suggested by users need to be validated before being shown live.

    However, of all the languages that WordPress.com supports, a few have no validators at all, which means that users suggest strings that are never shown live, and that makes us sad.

    This is thus a plea for all those who speak one (or several) of the languages below, or know someone who does (or know someone who knows someone…;) ), to consider applying for validator permissions for your language, by creating a topic on this very translations forum. What it entails is explained here:


    And here are the languages which have no validators:

    • Assamese
    • Asturian
    • Belarusian
    • Bulgarian
    • Catalan
    • Catalan (Balear)
    • Estonian
    • French (Canada) – ok :)
    • Georgian
    • Icelandic
    • Kannada
    • Latvian
    • Lithuanian
    • Malayam
    • Marathi
    • Mirandese
    • Mongolian – ok :)
    • Nepali
    • Occitan
    • Pashto
    • Punjabi
    • Sinhala
    • Slovak – ok :)
    • Slovenian
    • Tagalog
    • Telugu – ok :)
    • Ukrainian
    • Vietnamese – ok :)
    • Yiddish

    Finally, a few notes:

    • If you do want to become a validator, we strongly recommend that you get in touch with the WordPress.org translators for your language. If you have no success in contacting them, drop us a line on the WordPress.org Polyglots blog.
    • I’ll be publishing a similar post here, for the languages which haven’t been validated in a very long time, or which have a large number of strings pending validation.
    • This sticky post is closed to comments on purpose, to encourage you to start a new topic for your language.
