International WordPress Sites

What is it?

Since October 2007, every team translating WordPress can have their own local web site at a xx.wordpress.org subdomain.

The site is a WordPress install, which has four aims:

  1. to give brief information/description of WordPress
  2. to provide installation instructions
  3. to let the users download localized version of WordPress
  4. allows automatic upgrades to work with localized packages

These are accompanied by a blog, letting users follow the news about the translations.

What it is not?

  • A place for documentation. Although not perfect, use the Codex for now.

How to get such a local site?

To request a new local site please read the Requesting a New Locale page on the Translator Handbook.
