Saints and sinners all agree
Spanish is a lovin’ tongue
But she never spoke Spanish to me
The translation work at wordpress.com is going well. I present to you the wordpress.com Dashboard in Spanish (mostly).
In addition to the option that sets the language to use for the front page of your blog, each user will be able to choose the language they want to use for the admin interface. If your blog is Spanish but you want to use English in the admin interface, you can do that. Each user gets to choose the language they want to see in the admin.
This isn’t yet live on wordpress.com but should be soon. If you use wordpress.com and want to help with translation, head over to translate.wordpress.com and translate a few strings. This will help other wordpress.com users as well as the WordPress and bbPress communities in general.
Update: Spanish is now active. Not all themes have been translated, but the admin area has good coverage. If you don’t want your admin to display in Spanish, visit your profile and change the Interface Language (Idioma de la interface).

mm this IS live right now :S
BTW, there are a few strings that i wasnt able to translate… since i dont get the context. However its an excellent implementation 🙂
is wp.com going to share the language files to use on wpmu?
I’m working on adding context to the strings that need it.
WPCOM contains all strings in WP, WPMU, and bbPress plus some WPCOM specific strings. Since WPCOM is a superset of the others, you could take its catalog and use it for a WP, WPMU, or bbPress installation if you don’t mind the catalog being a bit bloated with some strings you don’t need. I’m working on exporting separate catalogs for WP, WPMU, and bbPress from the WPCOM catalog.
Are all themes goìng to be translated?
All themes will be translated, eventually. Making all of them translation ready is tedious work that will take a little more time.
Thanks, that’s a good enoguh answer for me. Keep it up!
I don’t understand Spanish, but I think thats a great news for bloggers around the world. Just to drop a note, there is a plugin for .org version of wordpress, that do the same thing. It was released by a Japanese user, so I wrote a english article on it while a go, here.
Joe Ely fan?? 🙂
If “mejoras” is “plugins”, I think it should be left in English. Some people may confuse “mejoras” with “updates” (actualizaciones).
Good job, anyway.
