Yesterday, I arranged a local WordPress Translation Day 3 Event with the help of Ahmad Awais, Maedah Batool, and Ashar Irfanย along with many others to participate in the Global WordPress Translation Day.

[EVENT SUMMARY]: Global WordPress Translation Day 3 1  Community

It was the second WP translation event organized in Pakistan. As the date coincided with a religious congregation here in Pakistan, so this time we had to shift our plan from in-person event to online event.

โšก๏ธThe Event

I announced the WordPress Translation Day event couple of days before at WPCouple. I wrote about what we have accomplished as a translator community, and what we plan to do further. Briefly, here are the details of the event from the announcement:

  • Date: September 30, 2017
  • Time: 5:30 PM WP-Pakistan Slack #meetup channel
  • Join Us:ย WP-Pakistan Slack

About 20+ people participated in the event. I started off the event by teaching the new translators how to translate. Thanks to Ahmad, I had already written a brief post on How To Translate WordPress Into Urdu. I shared this resource, our agenda, and necessary guidelines to get started. I remained in the slack group throughout the event to help the translators. Hereโ€™s the list of top 3 contributors:

Yes! I also made to this list.ย ๐Ÿ™Œ

๐Ÿ”ฅย Accomplishments

At the time of planning the event, we planned to translate WooCommerce 100% into Urdu this time. But due to overlapping of a religious engagementย day, we could not make it to 100%. However, we are much pleased that we participated in the Global Translation Day, and contributed to the open source community.

๐Ÿ“ฃย With the help of 20+ translators (including those who had contributed before), we managed to translate WooCommerce Development Trunk 61% into Urdu. 2,500+ strings were translated during the event.

๐ŸŽ‰ย New Translators

I am very much pleased to have two new members in our translator’s community. One isย Maedah Batool โ€“ A WordPress Core Contributor, who translated for the very first time. Sheโ€™s now our new Translation Editor as well. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

The other guy is, Hassan Murtaza. He also contributed for the first time. I congratulate both of them on joining the translation community. BTW did you notice both of them got the awesome Translation Contributor badges on their profiles?ย ๐Ÿ…

We’re also thankful to the rest of the translators who contributed and helped us to come this far.

๐ŸŒฑย Whatโ€™s Next

We โ€“ as a community โ€“ look forward to joining more such events and contribute to the open source. WooCommerce is our priority, sooner or later weโ€™ll be translating it 100% into Urdu. Maybe weโ€™ll have another event for this.
