Description

Let's build this out for other languages and currencies. This may need to be an epic with individual countries as subtasks. Will a bunch be easy but some languages and currencies are harder? Let's discuss.

It looks like our helpful translate-wiki friends have already translated the payments-wiki text into French, Turkish, Brazilian Portuguese, Norwegian, Hebrew and Arabic, with partial translations in a few other languages.

RTL languages might need some small CSS tweaks, but in general we get translations with very little developer work.

@spatton and @Ppena checkout the translations! Some are already in!!

That's awesome! Adding @TSkaff and @CDenes_WMF so they can help prioritize languages as needed.

Hi everyone! Just to clarify-- is this a FY2021 translation ask on our end, or will Translate Wiki folks be taking care of the rest of the languages?

Hey @CDenes_WMF, I think it'll end up being a translation ask on our end ... we'll start discussing on next week's fr-creative call and can fill you in after you're back from vacation.

Pinging this task as we talked about it briefly on tech priorities. @spatton and @CDenes_WMF - if you can sort out the translations fr-tech can help with next steps, though @DStrine mentioned that they are not entirely clear on what they need to do on their end. Could you guys coordinate together in order to move this task forward? TY!

The translation process for DonationInterface doesn't actually need any intervention by fr-tech until it's time to deploy. Translators just need to submit and approve the translations over at Translatewiki (here's a search that might find the relevant phrases). Once phrases are approved on translatewiki, there's a bot which automatically submits them to our codebase.

Hi all,

Quick update--

We are on it! The monthly convert on payments wiki has been included in our Master Translation File: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_S_mGdNj6qBxWCzHQQRkGw5ZSdE8ruuN19fRf6iras0/edit?ts=5da9ce69

thus we will always have these translations for campaigns that we fundraise in. Translating the TY email for monthly conversion (i.e. "I had to email you twice"), and the additional, recently proposed Monthly Recurring Donation Receipt (not yet drafted) are also on my to do list. I will reach out to TY email stakeholders for final decision on the proposed monthly recurring donation receipt; and, if approved, make sure that gets drafted in English.

If there are any other pieces of MC that I have not considered for localization, please let me know.

Thank you!
Camille
