I want to share some updates about translations in Sunshine Photo Cart. As a WordPress client gallery plugin used by photographers worldwide as evidenced by the variety of example sites, it's crucial that our translations are spot on. With the launch of Sunshine Photo Cart 3, I moved to the WordPress.org translation system, hoping to tap into the wider WordPress community's expertise.
However, things haven't gone entirely as planned. There have been some technical challenges and differences of opinion with the WordPress translation teams that have prevented me from providing what I feel is the best way to get translations for photographers using Sunshine Photo Cart. That's why I've now set up a dedicated translation site for Sunshine Photo Cart, using the exact same tools as WordPress.org.
Why This Matters
With our own translation site, Sunshine Photo Cart is making it even easier for photographers to customize the WordPress client gallery plugin they rely on for a significant portion of their business. This move isn't just about adding more languages. It's about making sure that photographers and t heir customers from various countries can use the plugin comfortably and efficiently.
Your Role and How It Helps
While the initial set of translations was done by automated tools, they are now updated and made more accurate by your contributions. When you help update translations, it's not just a text change; it's an enhancement to the way photographers around the world interact with Sunshine Photo Cart. I promise to integrate these updates swiftly into upcoming releases. Your eagle eye for linguistic details and willingness to point out and correct errors play a crucial role in maintaining the quality and relevance of this client gallery plugin for WordPress.
