#2692 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Plugin Directory: Add a Translation link to the sidebar

Reported by: lukecavanagh Owned by:

Description

Currently the translation information is hidden on load in the Contributors & Developers section, adding a simple link in the sidebar, will help users be able to find which languages a plugin has been translated in.

Example

<h3 class="widget-title">Translation</h3>
<p class="aside">WooCommerce has been translated into these 18 locales.</p>
<a class="button" href="https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/woocommerce">View translations</a>

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Going to close this as a wontfix because I don't think this info is important enough to stay in the sidebar.

The new banner is much more helpful in terms of getting a plugin translated, see 2692.png.

A link to translate.w.org aligns with the links to the Trac browser and SVN repo, see 2692-contributors.png.

Adding a simple translation link in the sidebar would not take up that much screen space.

I agree with @lukecavanagh. Its really hard to see an overview about the languages which is had to translated to and a simple link would make it much easier for translators. I totally overlooked the banner. I A simple link in a sidebar would make it much more user friendly and get maybe more people involved in translation.

Not for non US English locales, it isn't shown at all for these locales :(

+1 for adding a hint to translations in the sidebar (again)

#10 @jimtrue

+1 this should not be a #wontfix . Hiding the translations under a 'show more' heading isn't exactly being "accessible" at all. If I'm not logged into that locale, but I do speak multiple languages, I don't see anywhere except under that heading what languages the plugin has been translated into. I was under the impression we were supposed to be putting Accessibility front and center these days.

Speaking as someone who has been approached by multiple other language translators lately coming to translate our plugin, navigating translate.wordpress.org is complicated enough, especially getting people to the necessary project page, translation team, etc, that having a simpler 'onboarding' process from plugin > a state of translation > 'join the team and help get this plugin translated' would be very helpful.

Adding this as a sidebar item is just as critical as Support, Reviews, etc. @lukecavanagh suggestion above is incredibly precise and clear.
