Description

Hi!

WordPress reads it from the header of the theme style.css the data for the theme-details.
There, but an additional line can be added.
Languages​​: with the available languages ​​(en, fr, it, de, etc)

This could in theme details are made visible and at the wordpress.org themes in the discription.

This would facilitate users to find a theme that does not speak English.
When looking on wordpress.org theme would be an additional criterion in the Theme selection.

I think this functionality should also be extended to the plugins.

Another suggestion would be to add a filter, displaying only the themes / plugins that have translation, or are prepared for translation.

#2 @Kniebremser

That would be the second step.
Theme details come frome the style.css. Plugin details come frome plugin.php.

Step 3:
Add to profile at wordpress.org your preferred language.
And now you could be displayed on wordpress.org by the search at plugins and themes in your language first.
I think there would be much changed.
But it would be much easier for users.

This will probably be done at the wordpress.org API level (instead of requiring themes and plugins to maintain this information themselves) as part of the per-language functionality which is being added to the plugin directory in time for WordPress 4.1.

I'll leave this ticket open as a tracking ticket for now.

the first step could be already done.
The tags of the style.css are displayed under theme-details.
Then you could still display the available languages ​​in WP 4.1.
Then the theme / plugin developer and the bad boy's from wordpress.org the API have enough time to adjust everything to WP4.2. And if all childhood diseases are eliminated in one go the same for plugins.

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion added

Is this still a thing with the localized plugin/theme directories?

Is this a WordPress.org-API-only thing?
