Does WordPress speak your language?

Does WordPress speak your language?

WordPress speaks more than 100 languages. Many people don’t realise that that’s one of the main reasons of the software growing globally to power more than 24% of the web. This talk will shed a bit of light on who translates WordPress and how you, as a plugin or theme author, can grow your products following the example of the core software. You get to meet the largest WordPress contributor team – the Polyglots – 4000+ people who donate their time and effort to get WordPress to as many people and place as possible.
