With WordPress Global Translation Day for the open source version of WordPress coming up this weekend, we wanted to do something special for WordPress.com translators as well.
I’m happy to announce that you as a validator on WordPress.com can now access the preview version of the new translate.wordpress.com resource site:
It is accessible at https://translate.wordpress.com/ (that page would previously immediately
redirect to the projects page), no previously existing URLs change.
A technique that sends a user (or search engine) who requested one webpage to a different (but equally relevant) webpage. There are two types of common redirects: 301 - Permanent and 302 - Temporary
For new translators, a link to this site will be a good way to show how they can get started.
For experienced translators and validators, it’ll be easier to find all of the information regarding translating on translate.wordpress.com.
Some important notes
- This site is currently only accessible to validators and
Automattic staff, so please don’t share the this publicly yet as it would confuse people who will still be redirected to the project list.
We are a fully distributed company with over 2,000 people in 99 countries
- Previous landing page (project list) remains available at https://translate.wordpress.com/projects,
- As a validator, you will see an extra section if you are logged-in.
- I moved some pages from the support site, and plan on redirecting the existing pages to this new site.
Before launching this to everyone, I’d love to hear your feedback. Is there any contents or user flow that’s confusing? Anything that’s missing we should include?
We want to improve this resource site over time, so let us know if you see anything that can be better!
