JavaScript internationalization

Currently, there is no easy way to make strings from JavaScript files translatable in WordPress. There is no inbuilt way to scan JS files for strings or to load the translations. As Pascal Birchler writes in his post »JavaScript Internationalization: The Missing Pieces«, there are a few things missing to get JS internationalization into WordPress, which gets more important with Gutenberg.

The missing parts are (quoted from his post):

  • Scanning JavaScript files for internationalization functions
  • Loading only specific set of translations
  • Easily load translations

You can find much more info on the topic in Pascal’s post, and if you are interested in discussing it: there is also info on a new JS internationalization meeting.

Trusted Authors Program

The theme review team decided to create a Trusted Author Program. This »is an attempt to streamline the review process for authors who are consistently able to show they can to produce high quality code and themes that are in line with the current guidelines«, as the user acosmin writes in his post »Trusted Authors Program«.

Themes from authors that are part of the program will be automatically approved, and they will be able to upload new themes more often (every two weeks instead of once a month).
