Adding a new locale to the 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 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 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:

    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:

    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 polyglots handbook. You can read more about how translation on 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 !
