Back Staff Get Involved with WordPress Translation Day

26 April 2016 Staff sponsored WordPress Translation Day 2016 for MWUG, the Manchester WordPress User Group. Staff members Siobhan McMinn, Kayleigh Thorpe & Keith Hyde all took part to help make Manchester’s first WordPress Translation Day a success.

Many groups from all over the world took part in this day to help contribute translations to the WordPress core and also to WordPress Plugins and Themes. Say hello to some of many of the contributors:



Athens, Greece

Thessaloniki, Greece

Torino, Italy


Tokyo, Japan

and of course Manchester, UK staff member and organiser of Manchester WordPress Translation Day, Siobhan McMinn, says

“On behalf of myself and my fellow organisers, thank you very much to our sponsors, AutoTrader UK and We could not have done this day without you and we hope to have you on board next year. The day was a tremendous success for the WordPress community and will help to make WordPress more accessible to everyone around the world.”

“WordPress now powers over 25% of the web and our ambition is to grow this and help make the CMS available to everyone who wants to use WordPress. MWUG played their part in making this happen. If you would like more information on how to contribute to the WordPress Polyglot team or would like help with WordPress in general please feel free to email me on or join the WordPress Slack channel. I’m happy to help! See you next year everyone!”

Whilst are happy to host most open source website builders, we do love WordPress! This is why we have our very own WordPress Hosting Package. We drew inspiration for our WordPress hosting plan from our many friends in the UK WordPress community. Come and speak to us at your local WordCamp this year. The next one we are attending is WordCamp Brighton in July 2016, so if you are from that area come and say hello!

This event one was one of the first of many annual WordPress Translation Days and were very happy to support our staff and sponsor this WordPress community event. We look forward to seeing you at another WordPress event soon!
