David Decker has published his list of seven cardinal sins that he’s run into when diving into the localization/internationalization of plugins and themes. For beginners who want to start making it easy for others to localize their code, you should read this article on the Codex entitled, Translating WordPress. While David didn’t chastise developers for their code, Eric Mann weighed in from a plugin authors point of view that I think many other developers can relate to. ∞

In this Jeffroless addition of WordPress Weekly, David Peralty interviews Nikolay Bachiyski, creator of the GlotPress project. Among some of the topics discussed include translations, internationalization, localization, reasons for the GlotPress project, tools and techniques for translating themes and plugin, and more. I know that after I finished listening to this episode the other day, the GlotPress project made much more sense to me. I want to thank David for filling in for me as he did a great job.
