Sunday, April 24th marks the occasion where WordPress users around the world unite to contribute to the development of WordPress. This day is about making WordPress fun and accessible to everyone of all backgrounds and languages. The day where we join together all over the world to help WordPress grow and most importantly to have fun doing it!
WordPress itself has been translated into over 160 languages with over 5000 people worldwide contributing to the translation of different elements of WordPress. The Polyglot team created WordPress Translation Day with the intention of holding events in major cities around the globe; banding together for one day only to increase knowledge on how to translate WordPress. There will be a 24 hour live stream of selected speakers from different countries teaching you how to translate in your own language, which we will be screening here in Manchester, UK.
We are more than happy to announce on behalf of MWUG Manchester WordPress User Group, that we will be taking part in WordPress Translation Day 2016, by holding our own event at the luxurious Manchester building very kindly provided by Auto Trader Group.
Please come along and join us! Our event will be held 1pm to 4pm on Sunday 24th April. The event is for WordPress Users and Translators to meet in an informal environment, talk tech, eat pizza and generally have a good time. All you need is a laptop and keenness to come and get involved. You don’t need a technical background, just a love of WordPress or helping to teach others about languages.
