#3100 closed enhancement (fixed)

Plugin Directory: Add a "Translate ... into your language" link under the list of languages

Reported by: SergeyBiryukov Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: Plugin Directory v3.0 Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: needs-patch close


Background: #3093

The list of languages is now separated from the "Translate ... into your language" link, so if a translator doesn't see their language in the list, they have to search for the link to GlotPress elsewhere, and at the moment it's still hidden under Development tab, which isn't obvious at all.

The locale banner is supposed to help with that, but it's not always displayed when it should, see #2922.

To get more translators to contribute, the process should be as easy as possible.

Suggestion: Display a "Translate ... into your language" link under the list of languages in the popover.

  • Keywords needs-patch added

Consider that the locale bar should be showing when on a locale specific site, I'd suggest we add the translate link into the language dropdown so it's all self contained there. I'll see if I can work a patch at some point for this. At least something that makes it accessible on the overview page would be great.

I'm -1 on this. We should improve the language banner instead. We really don't have to put that link everywhere.

Replying to ocean90:

We really don't have to put that link everywhere.

We do if we want to get more translators to contribute :)
