WordPress is a widely available blogging software. It happens to be the software I am using for my blogs. You can find more information about WordPress here.
WordPress is available in many languages and I have been helping with translations in Persian, Kirghiz, Tajik and Mongolian. Unfortunately, the efforts in Mongolian are stalling, there are not enough translators – in fact, it seems I am currently the only one.
If you are a native Mongolian speaker, have good command of the English language and – ideally, but optionally, know something about WordPress software your help would be appreciated.
It is volunteer-work, so there is no payment for it. You can contribute any time you want, as much as you want. If you are interested and want to have a first look, see the translation page for WordPress Mongolian. Ideally, you browse around there to see what it is all about.
If you decide to contribute, you’ll need an account with wordpress.org, which you can get here. You may also want to read the Getting Started documentation. It contains useful information.
Once you have your account you can start translating right away. You can translate strings that currently do not have a translation, but also those who already have one if you are sure that they are wrong or that there is a better/more accurate translation.
However, translations are not available immediately, they need to be approved by a “validator”. A validator is a role with additional rights, that can be assigned to anyone. The problem is, that there are currently no active validators, and Glotpress hasn’t re-assigned that role to anyone. I have requested that role – mainly because no one else is doing it – but the request is still pending. Also I am not fluent in Mongolian, so far I can only do the easy stuff, for more complicated terms or sentences, I need help.
So, if you want to take over the validator role (there can be more than one validator), please place a request at the Glotpress forum - http://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/, ideally you support your request with some credentials, so approval is faster.
Thanks for your help.
