Adding a new locale to the WordPress.com translations

  1. Hello, I've bumped into quite a problem when trying to translate Jetpack for self-hosted sites.

    First, I found out that the comment form is hosted here in WordPress.com. So I got here and tried to contribute to the translation I need.

    But then, I couldn't find a translation for the Spanish (Mexico) locale at all. Is there a way to add it or is that something that needs consensus from the translation teams?

    I'd very much like to contribute if there's a way.

  2. Hi astrowebdev,

    Thanks for your interest in translating Jetpack related strings on translate.wordpress.com. I'm checking with my team to see if there is any issue adding es-mx, and I will get back to you as soon as possible!

  3. Hi!

    We added es-mx to the "wpcom" project. You can start translating from here: https://translate.wordpress.com/projects/wpcom/es-mx/default/

    I also made you a validator of the project, so you can enter, approve, and import translations.

    You can start translating Jetpack plugin related strings from this link:
    https://translate.wordpress.com/projects/wpcom/es-mx/default/?filters%5Bterm%5D=mu-plugins%2Fjetpack&filters%5Buser_login%5D=&filters%5Bstatus%5D=current_or_waiting_or_fuzzy_or_untranslated&filters%5Bview%5D=&filter=Filter&sort%5Bby%5D=priority&sort%5Bhow%5D=desc

    Or use the "filter" feature to find the string you want to translate.

    I didn't find any existing glossary or style guide for "es-mx" on WordPress.org polyglots handbook. You can read more about how translation on translate.wordpress.com works at this FAQ page.

    Thanks again!

  4. Thank you! I'll try to translate as much as I can, not just the Jetpack strings. I'm surprised no one from my country volunteered before!

  5. Thank you very much for your help, @astrowebdev !
