WordPress Indian language Localisation Do’s and Dont’s by Makarand

Announcing Speakers

Introducing our next speaker for WordCamp Mumbai 2017 – Makarand Mane.

Makarand ManeIn this session Makarand would like to help language translators understand common mistakes happening while translating WordPress into any Indian language.

Previously Makarand attended Global translation Day first and Global translation Day second. On the occasion of Global translation Day First he gathered people & started to contribute into polyglot community and gave efforts to make Marathi translation 100%.

On Global translation Day 2 many new contributors contributing to Marathi localisation and Makarand was working as GTE, he saw few common mistakes new translators doing. GTE can reject strings but can’t explain reason to reject. There was many suggestion coming for one single string, so rejection ratio was high. Efforts of new contributors was wasted. Some translation approved by GTE’s which still needs improvement. So final translated product is not that much perfect to be used by end user.

Makarand also collected data from GTE of other languages and he found few common mistakes which every translator does. Now WordPress is available in 4 Indian languages, but popular plugins and themes are still not translated. He will explain how to avoid these common mistakes to reduce efforts and make better translation.

After creating second project in WordPress, he felt in love with it in 2011 and since then he never touched Joomla again.

Meet Wambhau – The Dabbawala who will deliver WordPress goodness

The Mumbai dabbawalla is a popular sight in the city. They are a delivery service and carry lunch boxes to and fro to several thousands of offices everyday. They predominantly use their popular Hercules cycles or the local train system to transport lunch boxes.

This tradition goes back right upto the 1890s – about a 120 years ago. The Dabbawala system is often cited as near perfect and they are frequently known to make less than one mistake in over 8 million deliveries.

They have been studies by research scholars and management institutes, trying to decode how a group of non-MBA, mostly school dropouts and without any formal training – manage to run such an efficient system.

So when it came to designing a Waapu for WordCamp Mumbai – the working class heroes called dabbawalas  were obviously a popular idea.

Meet Wambhau

The Wapuu for WordCamp Mumbai is designed after the popular ‘dabbawala’ and we hope it delivers great WordPress goodness to all attending the WordCamp. It’s name is “Wambhau”

The name means Wapuu + Mumbai + bhau  (meaning brother in the local Marathi language and a popular way for addressing dabbawalas)

 

Credits

Special thanks to Ganesh Kerkar who designed the Wambhau. Also loads of thanks to Shwetambari Shinde, who gave us the idea and inputs around creating ‘Wambhau’
