Global WordPress Translation Day


Global WordPress Translation Day is a 24-hour global event dedicated to the translation of the WordPress ecosystem (core, themes, plugins).

It’s a unique and innovative event, a cool mix of digital and physical: first, there is going to be a 24-hour livestream on that will provide inspiration and training to both coders and translators on localizing and internationalizing. In addition to that, we will come together in Zurich to learn about internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n), as well as to translate WordPress, plugins, and themes.

Last year's GWTD ( was lots of fun and this year the celebration is double: September 30 has also been designated as International Translation Day by the United Nations!
